Maybe: It sounds like you're having palpitations. That could mean you have an abnormal heart rhythm. You should see your doctor to have an EKG done. 2 cups of regular coffee wouldn't be expected to increase palpitations if that's your normal amount. Avoid other stimulants (energy drinks, nasal decongestants, drugs of abuse).

Normally don't drink coffee, jittery/gives palpitations (heart was checked, I just get them) but can alot of caffeine leave u jittery for while after?

Yes: Caffeine is a stimulant which can cause the symptoms you are describing. This doesn't mean you have a heart problem, it just means you are quite sensitive to caffeine. It may make sense to switch to decaf or less caffeinated drinks. Be aware that tea is also heavily caffeinated.

I have 1-2 heart palpitations a day, I don't drink coffee and I had a good EKG in june. Is this concerning?

I have 1-2 heart palpitations a day, I don't drink coffee and I had a good EKG in june. Is this concerning?

Depends: If the palpitations are brief, lasting 1-2 seconds, and feel like a "skipped heart beat" or an "extra heart beat" then these are generally benign and of no concern. If the palpitations are prolonged and characterized by sustained rapid heart beats, then you should be evaluated by your physician. These are usually safe and not life-threatening, but can be annoying.

After I consecutive drank 2 cups of coffee (1 before and 1 after meal) I felt heart palpitations and dizziness, is this the effect of coffee?

Probably: Caffeine is a stimulant. People can have variable sensitivity to its stimulant qualities including having palpitations and dizziness. See what happens off coffee. If you drink it every day you may get a headache from withdrawal. If palpitations and/or dizziness persist or re-occur see a dr.

I am experiencing heart palpitations (pulse) (worsened by: caffeinated drinks (coffee, tea, soda, etc.), psychological stress).

Sounds like a: Potential panic attack. The last thing you want is caffeine--in any form. Try talking to a shrink, and incorporating healthy grounding and soothing behaviors--self-talk, meditation, yoga, walking 22 1/2 minutes per day, etc. Here's a reference on anxiety: http://www.

Is there a connection between heart palpitations and the menstrual cycle? Can heart palp be caused by dmae, ginseng, and green coffee bean supplements?

Palpitations: Yes, there is an association with a women's menstrual cycle and palpitations and when a women is peri-menopausal. I have seen it quite frequently. The medications you are on as well as the supplements can all increase palpitations. These can be pac's, pvc's, increased awareness of normal rhythm, and even svt.

Could plavix (clopidogrel) make your heart flutter? I am a 45 year old female and one month ago had an asd clouser done. I noticed every so often I would have a feeling of fluttering in my heart, at fist thought it was my heart getting used to the device.

No but..: Plavix (clopidogrel) should not cause any sort of heart arrhythmias. Most people occasionally feel a flutter in their heart, usually related to harmless irregular beats (atrial or premature ventricular beats) or stress/fatigue/anxiety symptoms. However, the ASD closure device could also cause irregular heart beats depending on its position. It would be a good idea to bring it up with your cardiologist.

Why could the heart flutter at night?

Why could the heart flutter at night?

Rhythm problem: Palpitations or fluttering sensations in the chest most commonly mean that the heart is actually beating irregular with some early beats and some pauses. This can occur at any time of day but not uncommonly, the patient is more likely to notice the sensations at night when lying still or on the left side. Also, in some cases the skipping is more likely to occur when the pulse is slower (lying down).

See physician: Everybody gets skipped beats, but a run of flutter or racing, especially if it takes your breath away, is reason to get seen for a thyroid check, ekg, rhythm study, and whatever else.
