  1. Earlier tonight, at around 7:25 pm, I noticed a fluttering sensation in my chest. My first thought was atrial fibrillation (AF). I've had quite a few runs of AF, so I'm familiar with its symptoms. I immediately grabbed my iPhone ECG recorder, licked the electrodes (I know, gross, but I wanted a sharp recording), lifted my shirt and placed the device against my chest hoping for a clean recording. Until now, I hadn't been fast enough to catch an arrhythmia in action. But this time, I caught the tail end of the episode. I tweeted the experience.

    This is how it went down.
