Painful palpitations (long history but never painful till recently). I exercise 3/wk. Should i bother gp? No lasting chest pain only transient.
Yes, bother them: Palpitations, as you know, are distressing but they're not painful. I would be suspicious that something else is going on. For instance, pericarditis could cause pain with forceful or irregular heart beat. Because of your age, an unusual presentation of angina also needs to be considered, even though your spells are brief. ...Read more

Treat anxiety.: If you have a little anxiety then having palpitations can be extremely disconcerting. Palpitations in this setting are most likely nothing to worry about. The anxiety though can make everything more significant and worrisome. I would recommend going back to see your physician and talk about treating the underlying anxiety. That would be the best way to go. ...Read more

Best wishes. ...Read more
Usually SVT: It depends on the palpitations - if it's just one or two beats' worth, probably nothing and the chest pain should be investigated on its own merits. If there are prolonged, fast palpitations (>120/min or so) we'd use a monitor to see if your heart had flipped into an abnormal rhythm. Such rhythm problems can often be treated by an electrophysiologist, especially in a young patient like yourself. ...Read more

Pull vs Palpitation: Palpitations generally refer to the heart muscle and describe periodic rapid accelerations of heart rate. Palpitations normally occur with vigorous activity. Some sensitive people can develop palpitations due to caffeine or thyroid disorders at rest.
