My friend is a nursing student and wanted to use me for a project. He needed an athlete (I run and lift weights 4-6 days a week) and had to record their heart going as fast as possible.
I'm a bit of an adrenaline junkie so I said yes. He had me sprint uphill a bunch of times and recorded my heart. While recording he thought he heard something wrong, though (a murmur?), so when we got back to his place he asked if he could 'reset' my heart.
I was leary but he told me getting my heart rate that high could be dangerous and we should be sure. My heart was kind of beating fast so I said okay.
I laid down and he hit me kinda hard in the center of the chest, like they do on TV shows. My heart started beating abnormally every time he went to reset it though, so he had to do it four times. It was kind of scary, the first time it felt like my heart wasn't even beating and after one of them it started racing.
A few minutes after the fourth one he said my heart was normal again, so I thanked him because who knows what would have happened if he didn't reset it? But that was last weekend and ever since maybe 2-3 times a day my heart will start racing really really fast again. Did I push it too hard? Is my heart okay? He says I'm fine but I'm scared.
