What can cause me to have irregular heart beats?

What can cause me to have irregular heart beats?

Normal: Everybody has a few of these from time to time. If you often have more than five in a minute when you're not loaded with caffeine, it's worth talking about with your physician. If they take away your breath, make you faint, or are accompanied with pain, it's more worrisome. Good luck.

Due to caffeine, energy drinks, dehydration, drugs like otc cold meds or streets drugs like marihuana, hyperthyroid state, anxiety/panic attacks. How was ur ANA test?

Irregular heart beat: Irregular heart beat can be due cardiac arrhythmia which can be aggravated by exercise or fever if you're having a sinus or an ear infection, an EKG would show these problems, you need to see your 1ry care physician or a cardiologist. Having stuffy nose with sinus problem is very common because allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, ear infections & conjunctivitis can all go together. Good luck.

Do I have an abnormal heart rhythm? I have been having irregular heart beats, whenever I stand up my heartbeat fastens. Is my heart normal?

Do I have an abnormal heart rhythm? I have been having irregular heart beats, whenever I stand up my heartbeat fastens. Is my heart normal?

Good question: When anyone stands up, their heart rate quickens - that part is normal. Regarding your irregular heart beat: the most important factor in determining if it's dangerous to you or not is whether or not your heart is normal. So your question is right at the "heart" of the matter! You need an evaluation with history, exam, ekg, echo, blood work, and possibly a stress test.

I have irregular heart beats when having sex or mastubating, is this normal?

I have irregular heart beats when having sex or mastubating, is this normal?

Let's not say...: Let's not say "normal..." but rather let's say likely not dangerous. Sex releases adrenaline which can cause extra heartbeats called pacs and pvcs which you may feel. It can also cause certain other rhythms. A cardiologist or electrophysiologist can set you up with something called a holter monitor or event monitor you can wear at home. Masturbate with it on and you'll have your answer.

Arrhythmia: You can have an irregular heart beat or arrhythmia due to many causes. It is unlikely that such a low dose of escitalopram will cause it but your arrhythmia can worsen at any time. When starting a psychiatric treatment, it is best to request an EKG and full blood work to rule out medical causes of psychiatric illness like thyroid disease, which can also cause arrhythmia. Please seek advise.

Why do I get irregular heart beats when I lie down?

Why do I get irregular heart beats when I lie down?

Premature beats: Are you sure you only get irregular beats when you're lying down or is it that you're unaware of them when you're active? Wearing an ambulatory (holter) monitor for 24 hours would give you precise information about your heart rhythm. Avoid caffeine, nicotine, chocolate and alcohol if you're having frequent premature beats which make you feel like the heart is skipping. Check for an overactive thyroid.

When I have irregular heart beats I perform chest compressions on my self then the heart returns back to beating normal. Is it safe what I'm doing?

When I have irregular heart beats I perform chest compressions on my self then the heart returns back to beating normal. Is it safe what I'm doing?

Huh?: Have heard of self -performed cough-induced cardiac compression & self-performed chest thump (neither of which I am suggesting that you do). However, I haven't heard of someone doing self -performed chest compressions. If you are having irregular heart rate then this should be evaluated by your physician or a cardiologist. Would discourage you from engaging in this activity unless you are >>.

I have premature irregular heart beats. It's skipping hard when I take a deep breath in everytime. Why? Could it be bc I had half a coke cola?

I have premature irregular heart beats. It's skipping hard when I take a deep breath in everytime. Why? Could it be bc I had half a coke cola?

Avoid triggers: Skipped beats usually imply premature ventricular or atrial contractions (pvcs or pac's). They are triggered by Adrenalin surges or stimulant effects (caffeine/alcohol/meds can trigger). Pain/breathing issues/physiologic stress can trigger as well. In the setting of anormal heart structurally these symptoms are more of a nuisance than a danger. Void the triggers.

What leads to irregular heart beats?

Many causes: Your heartbeat is meant to be regular but there are many things that make it feel like it is missing, skipping, or fluttering. Most are benign but it is reasonable to see your GP and get an ECG to diagnose the problem if one actually exists.
