A member asked:

I have palpitations and sometimes a pounding heart, i also have anxiety, how can i tell if this is wolf parkinson white or just anxiety?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Doubtful: Wps, is quite rare. Conversely, anxiety with palpitations, pounding is common in teens and young adults. But if this syndrome runs in your family, best to check with a cardiologist. He/she will take a detailed history and perhaps put you on a 24 hr holter (portable) heart monitor. Good luck.
