    When it's quiet at night and you're lying still in bed, you can hear your heart more easily. Alcohol places a strain on the heart and blood vessels if it's taken in large doses, although there's some evidence to suggest that light intake of alcohol may be good for you if you're over a certain age.

    If you've had an EGC (the test where they wire you up with the stickers) and the docs said you were OK, then you're probably OK - it's a very good way of finding out if something's wrong.

    The more you stress out about your heart, the more adrenalin you make, which makes your heart beat faster and harder - is that maybe what's happening to you?
