Recent CT scan indicated mild thickening of left adrenal gland unchanged. I get heart palpitations when I lie on my left side. Is this serious?
Nothing serious: CT findings and palpitations are unrelated. If you are otherwise well, with no history of cancer, the mild thickening is most often unimportant. Palpitations are due to a sudden racing of the heart, or to premature heartbeats that feel like a skipped beat or a quick flutter. These palpitations are usually not an indication of heart disease.

Some may be hormonally related and come and go. Some may be genetic such as familial atrial fibrillation and require more intense diagnostics and therapies. If they persist, or if you have prolonged episodes and/or sxs f/u w/md. ...Read more
Yes and maybe: Certainly arrhythmia can occur at the time of and immediately after an electric shock. Usually. That would be transient. Whether a shock can cause ongoing arrhythmia that is harder to answer. Palpitations, unexplained, are so common that it would be hard to prove that the rhythm problem was caused by the shock. So I doubt the relation between electric shock and chronic arrhythmia. ...Read more
You Must See Your Dr:
Night shift workers have more palpitations and heart problems than non-shift workers. Partly this may be due to increased stress and sleep deprivation associated with night shift work. But also the night shift interferes with your bodies biological clock (circadian rhythm); which in turn is synched to daylight and darkness.
