I don't know if I had experienced heart palpitations, but a while back I experienced was like my heart wanted to jump right out of my chest, very scrary & happened quite often. this mostly happened when I was trying to fall asleep. I believe it was Fil who told to put 2 small bricks under my bed posts to elevate the head of my bed, & it has helped a great deal. I hardly ever get that attack any more. but i do believe there is a direct relationship to a congested liver/gallbladder and their heart.
