Having heart palpitations randomly (last 2-10 min.), mostly at night before bed or if i get hungry during day. Dr also says I have benign heart murmur?

Having heart palpitations randomly (last 2-10 min.), mostly at night before bed or if i get hungry during day. Dr also says I have benign heart murmur?

Odds are you're fine: Palpitations at rest are common in healthy young adults. Stay hydrated, get enough sleep and exercise, avoid caffeine. If you have experienced significant decrease in exercise tolerance, if the palpitations get worse with exertion, if they cause dizziness or fainting, or if they don't improve within several weeks, go see a doctor.

Benign heart murmurs are benign. ...Read more

Heart palpitations and diahhrea. I have a heart murmur but I seen the heart doc not to long ago and everything was ok. I did have low potassium level.

Heart palpitations and diahhrea. I have a heart murmur but I seen the heart doc not to long ago and everything was ok. I did have low potassium level.

Restore potassium: Your potassium must be restored to normal before anything else. Additionally your RBC magnesium level needs to be checked and also followed as the magnesium level affects potassium level and both can precipitate arrythmias. The diarrhea probably caused the initially low potassium. Make sure you don't have an infection. Meantime rehydrate with an electrolyte drink to restore fluid and minerals. ...Read more

Can a heart murmur cause fatigue, throwing up  heart pounding very fast for a 5 y/o about once a month. Doctor says they can't find anything wrong.

Not usually: A heart murmur is just a sound in the heart, can be caused by many things, but also can be an innocent murmur (meaning that the heart is normal and the murmur is just sound of blood moving in a normal heart). So, if the cardiologist told you the heart is structurally normal, then an innocent heart murmur would not cause the above symptoms. Recommend seeing a peds. Cardiologist. ...Read more

What could causes a heart murmur in an otherwise healthy 17yr. Old?

What could causes a heart murmur in an otherwise healthy 17yr. Old?

Could be normal: Thin young healthy teens can have turbulent blood flow heard as a murmur. Heart valve abnormalities can lead to murmurs, but are rare. Sometimes, if a teen is anemic, the increased heart rate from that will cause the murmur. Have the doctor listen carefully, and an echocardiagram may be needed. This is a painless, not invasive test which uses sound waves to look at the heart structure. ...Read more

Does a PFO (patent foramen ovale) ever cause a heart murmur ?

Does a PFO (patent foramen ovale) ever cause a heart murmur ?

NO: A pfo is a small communication between the two upper chambers of the heart and usually it does not cause a murmur. Now if the hole is bigger it may be an atrial septal defect (ASD) which would cause a murmur. So unless it's an ASD and erroneously called a pfo, it should not cause a murmur. ...Read more

Can anxiety cause heart murmur? Does it go away when anxiety goes away?

NO: A heart murmur is a condition related to abnormal flow of blood through one (or more) of the heart valves. Anxiety can cause or worsen different abnormal heart rhythms, which in turn can increase the heart murmur. Example: anxiety can cause increased heart rate and in turn worsen a murmur. So the short answer is no, but anxiety can certainly make an underlying murmur more apparent. ...Read more

What causes a heart murmur? I had a echo done but showed nothing but mild regurgitation

A sound : Murmurs are sounds that are caused by blood going through a structure (valve, hole, etc.). It doesn't have to be abnormal. In fact, there are more normal "innocent" murmurs than abnormal ones.

How can my anxiety cause me to have a heart murmur? Lately, I have really noticed my heart beat goes into groups of three or more. I haven't really been experiencing anything out of the ordinary because of this. I am just really worried and i know my pare

How can my anxiety cause me to have a heart murmur? Lately, I have really noticed my heart beat goes into groups of three or more. I haven't really been experiencing anything out of the ordinary because of this. I am just really worried and i know my pare

When : When you feel your heart beating in groups of three, you may have a minor arrhythmia called trigeminy. With this condition every third heart beat is a premature beat. After the skipped beat there is typically a brief pause and then the normal heart beats begin again. Most of the time these heart beats are benign and are not a marker of anything serious.
Factors that might increase these irregular heart beats include stress, caffeine, alcohol, lack of sleep, cold/viruses, or any other physical or emotional stress.

If your heart were to start racing for an extended period of time, or if the irregular heart beats were associated with difficulty breathing, lightheadedness or chest discomfort i would recommend you contact your doctor. Otherwise it sounds like no further evaluation or treatment is needed. ...Read more
