Put it all together: & it spells "worthless." In folk medicine burdock root is used to treat (gasp) gout "rheumatism" ulcers acne eczema psoriasis SNAKEBITE RABIES pain dandruff & burns.

Do all palpitations show up on a ekg? Besides pvcs and pacs are normal palpitations an arrhythmia?
Bumps In The Night: An EKG takes only one minute so you're "lucky" (I guess) to find any. If the doctor is really concerned he'll put you on a constant monitor (that you carry around with you) for from 2 to 14 or so days. He'll also ask you to keep a record of any symptoms you feel during that time. Ordinarily it's not worrisome to have a few PVCs or PACs a day unless you have bad symptoms or they fit certain patterns ...Read more
Many palpitations everyday, ekg. Holter monitors, 30 day event monitor, all normal but they all do show many palpitations but no arrhythmia. Why?
Thanks for asking!: Normally contractions of the heart are initiated by a special collection of cells called the sinus node. However, virtually every cell in the heart has the ability to start a contraction. Some people have cells in the heart that initiate a contraction instead of waiting for the signal to come from the usual place (the sinus node). This creates an extra beat, experienced as a palpitation. ...Read more
