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?

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.

Could an electric shock have caused me to get heart palpitations?

Could an electric shock have caused me to get heart palpitations?

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

Why do I get heart palpitations every morning after working a night shift?

Why do I get heart palpitations every morning after working a night shift?

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.

Heart palpitations making me feel very uneasy, had it for a whole day now. What can I do to get rid of them? What's causing it?

Need a monitor: Palpitations (or the sensation of fast heart beating) could be related to a genuine rhythm abnormality or the cause could be simple skipping.

Obviously further recommendations could follow based on the results. ...Read more
