Deviated Septum And Heart Palpitations
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
No: Haven't heard of onion palpitations. Green onions and yellow onions aren't spicy enough to create the excitement that might lead to sensations of palpitations. Eating cooked onions should be fine, just like eating other cooked vegetables. Theoretically, getting hit in the heart by a big yellow onion flying at high speed can cause a problem, similar getting hit by a baseball, so don't throw onions.
Yes: ? If heart palpitations can cause fainting. The medical condition Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) has associated rapid heart beat & fainting symptoms. This is an autonomic nervous system mediated disorder; sometimes associated with Joint Hypermobility Syndrome (see Brighton criteria) &/or chronic pain. People with POTS often have lightheadeedness upon standing up too fast.See 2 more doctor answers
Depends on cause!: Regular exercise decreases circulating catecholamines, which increase the risk of common palpitations. But there are some types, where exercise should pose a danger. I would recommend a hoter monitor test to decide if it is a pat vs pvc! Talk to doc!
Electrophysiology: Usually palpitations are caused by an abnormal heart rhythm. Electrophysiologists are cardiologists that specialize in this field. There are many different types of arrhythmias, some of which are benign and some require further evaluation.
Awareness: The specific definition of palpitations is feeling your heart beat - which in general is good :-) it can range from feeling the pulse when in a quiet room - to actual abnormal beats - extra beats from a sensitive spot - to extra circuits conducting beats, or the top part of the heart going out of rhythm and beating chaotically - depends on what is going on as to the cause
Tough to say...: There are certain rhythm problems that only come on with exertion. Palpitations however, are an unnatural awareness of your heartbeat, so even being severely deconditioned can do it. I'd find a cardiologist or cardiac electrophysiologist and have them run you on a treadmill while wearing ekg. If that doesn't work, we'd get you an "event monitor" to record the palpitations.See 1 more doctor answer
Palpitation treat: Treatments include not using caffeine, alcohol, street drugs, smoking and other stimulant substances. Try to learn meditation and other calming techniques, cut out herbal substances, cough and cold medicines, nutritional supplements, see your doctor to be sure no direct heart problem and for treatment if the basics above don't help.
It doesn't: It just makes the ones that always around more noticeable.
Rest: While exercising, palpitation is normal. If it comes while you are resting, see your doctor.
Palpitations: Although the cause of palpitations is usually benign, if they are occurring frequently, you should see a doctor to exclude a cardiac arrhythmia. The differential diagnosis of palpitations involves either cardiac (arrhythmias, valvular disease), psychiatric (panic disorder, other anxiety disorders), or miscellaneous (stimulants, thyrotoxicosis, anemia, fever, stress, or exercise).
Type?: The cornerstone of treatment is an accurate diagnosis. Ask your doctor for a heart monitor to wear.
Type?: The cornerstone of treatment is an accurate diagnosis. Ask your doctor to arrange an 24 hour heart monitor test.
