Can Gas Feel Like Heart Palpitations
Yes: Heart flutter can mean almost anything to different people. I have had patients note "palpitations" or "gurgling" in their chest from a hiatal hernai and I have also had patients with proven severe erosive esophagitis develop symptomatic arrhythmias (apc, vpc and paf) which resolved with treatment of their reflux. So "heart flutters" may or may not be causally associated with reflux/hiatal hernias. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Palpitations is the symptom, not the diagnosis. They are the 'abnormal awareness of the beating heart'. This can include the heart going to fast, too slow, too hard, irregularly, skipping a beat. The causes are varied eg electrical problems (both sinister and not sinister), extra beats (mostly harmless), anxiety, thyroid problem. If persistent or worrying then get checked for ...Read more
Can sudden bad news cause panic/anxiety attacks? Feel warm, nervous, fast pulse, feels like my heart beats extra beat, feel scared nervous, can't slee
Yes: This is a common reaction however there are other causes for these symptoms. You mention excessive bleeding and a diuretic that might contribute to your symptoms.

Feel like need to take deep breath and some chest pressure. Heart rate 66 BPM. Worried it could be heart?
Remotely possible: You have a nice low resting heart rate which suggests some degree of cardiovascular conditioning. The sensation of needing to take a deep breath and some chest pressure is most often linked to anxiety...more worried if the pressure feeling worsened when exercising and improved with rest. Or you were actually short of breath or had palpitations. Do some deep breathing, relax. To Doc if persists. ...Read more
Could aortic regurgitation be causing the pounding feeling i get after exercise? heart beats uncomfortably hard and can see heart beating off chest
Yes.: Aortic regurgitation (leaking of the aortic valve), if severe enough, can cause palpitations and prominent pulses as well as enlargement of the heart to the point where one can see the pulsations on the chest wall. The degree of aortic valve leaking can readily be seen on an echocardiogram. ...Read more
The vagus nerve?: The association between GI activity (e.g. Gas/bloating, acid reflux) and palpitations exists, but we aren't sure why. It may involve the vagus nerve, which controls GI tract as well as the heart, especially the electrical properties of cardiac tissue. Alterations in vagus activity, triggered by GI feedback, may alter conduction properties in heart muscle, leading to fast or irregular heart beats. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Heart racing, slight chest discomfort, nausea and feeling like i could pass out. Maybe two of these a day. Feels like anxiety attack.
What causes palpitations and heart flutters, like your heart is dropping in your chest or like it's drowning?
Skipped beat: Sounds like you're describing a Premature Ventricular Contraction (PVC), which feels like a short pause, followed by a single stronger beat. They're very common among otherwise healthy people and can be reduced by avoiding stimulants, such as caffeine. See a heart rhythm specialist (cardiac electrophysiologist) for further evaluation and to ensure your heart is healthy. ...Read more
My heart often 'flutters' or skips a beat which can take my breath away. Plus i get dizzy spells. Ecg normal. Heart conditions in family
Holter monitor?: Various rhythm abnormalities can give these symptoms, but most common is premature beats (apcs or pvcs, depending where in heart the beats arise). They usually are benign, requiring no treatment unless frequent/intolerable symptoms. Ecg only detects this if it happens at exactly the time the tracing is taken. Monitors can be worn for longer periods to make a diagnosis. Unlikely to be familial. ...Read more
How can I discriminate if I have panic attack or angina attack? Both include chest discomfort, rapid or irregular heart beat and anxiety.
Palpitations are an awareness of extra heartbeats which most of us have. The sensation can be single or multiple and can sometimes last minutes. Different people may feel other symptoms along with them such as dizzy, lightheaded or short of breath. The palpitations are almost always atrial or ventricular premature beats. Usually benign but they are also ...Read more
