If seeing someone I love make my heart skip a beat, does that mean I have an arrhythmia?

Yes: Technically it may be called arrhythmia but it is very common. It is normal to have at least five extra beats per minute. Just to make sure you don't have anything else i would get an EKG and consider a holter monitor but sometimes simply by listening your heart a physician may diagnose extra beats ( PVC or apc) or atrial or other arrhythmias that may require treatment. ...Read more

Increased blood flow: Respiratory activity influences venous return to the heart. Briefly, increasing the rate and depth of respiration promotes venous return and therefore enhances cardiac output.

What does it mean when you can hear your own heart beat ? I also started getting moody?

What does it mean when you can hear your own heart beat ? I also started getting moody?

Some thoughts...: It depends on if you're really hearing your own heartbeat, or if you're hearing a "whooshing" sound in one of your ears that is in sync with your heartbeat. Feeling and heartbeat can depend on what position you are in, if you're lying down, sitting up, etc, and it doesn't necessarily mean anything's wrong.
