My heart hates Christmas

Clinical Scenario

It’s 7 pm on Christmas day, a 32 yo woman refers palpitations since the morning. I was with my frends yesterday nigth, I think I had drank a bit too much. I Hate Christmas, it brings me down.
She’s awake, alert and oriented, her mood is low. Vital signs are normal,  EKG shows a sinus rhythm. 

 I’m sure it’s nothing but this damn holidays…


There is any clinical relationship between arrhytmias and holidays or acute assumption of alcholic drinks, furthermore lonely heart can't rule out a sick heart.

Marry Xmas to all our readers! Please be happy!

    1. Most women don’t know this... but even if a man is attracted to you or even says he loves you...

      ...chances are he still feels something is missing.

      Because there is a secret, emotional need hidden within his heart that he craves more than anything.

      And in most cases, is not being met.

      The problem is, if it’s not being met, his attention will inevitably wander until he finds a woman who can give it to him.

      Maybe one in a thousand women knows how to do this instinctively, and they usually rise to unbelievable levels of influence and fame.

      But most women, or men for that matter, don’t even know it exists.

      On the other hand, when you have this 1 simple secret...

      You won’t believe the shocking effect you have on the men in your life.

      Here’s a video I discovered that shows you exactly what I’m talking about:

      ==> Here’s what I’m talking about: <=========> He’ll give his heart to the first woman who does THIS...
