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!

Not usually: Palpitations in young people usually aren't dangerous -- but they can be annoying. Exercise and stress reduction can help. Some people get palpitations because of thyroid disease, and you might want to have your thyroid level checked. If you are having problems with lightheadedness, fainting, or shortness of breath, those are signs it might be something more serious.

Is there any way I can prevent heart palpitations during exercise?

Is there any way I can prevent heart palpitations during exercise?

Probably normal: As the hr increases with exercise, it is expected that most people will be aware of it. This is not a problem. However, while exercising, if you suddenly become aware of a unusually rapid heart beat (as is a switch was suddenly turned on), the that should be checked out. A treadmill stress test or a monitor worn while exercising would provide the answer. These are usually not life-threatening.

Can gastric problems cause interruption during exercise (heart palpitations etc)? If so, what types of problems can cause this?

Can gastric problems cause interruption during exercise (heart palpitations etc)? If so, what types of problems can cause this?

Not normally: Heart palpitation is normal during exercise. Can be exaggerated if you eat just before exercising, get dehydrated during exercise or if you use some supplements that increase metabolism. Also long runners sometimes develop diarrhea that could be associated with an exaggerated response. Hope this help.

I exercise quite regularly but I get heart palpitations and experience anxiety and stress on a regular basis. Is this bad for my heart?

Therapy?: It can be. Have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy? Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as anxiety or depression is medication (which, on your best day, is supposed to take the edge off symptoms) but the real gruntwork takes place in psychotherapist's consulting room.

Experiencing what I believe are heart palpitations. I didn't vigorously exercise, just mildly. It flutters and hurts mostly when I walk. Is it serious?

Experiencing what I believe are heart palpitations. I didn't vigorously exercise, just mildly. It flutters and hurts mostly when I walk. Is it serious?

Heart flutter: Heart flutter is from a rapidly beating heart or from arrhythmia. It is normal with even mild exercise, but should not cause chest pain if it is normal. Chest pain with heart flutter is very serious and could indicate a lack of blood flow/oxygenation to the heart muscle caused by arrhythmia and warrants an ER visit urgently.

Several heart palpitations a year with nausea lasting for several hours each after exercise, echo and holter tests found nothing, what should I do?

Several heart palpitations a year with nausea lasting for several hours each after exercise, echo and holter tests found nothing, what should I do?

Need evaluation.: I assume by your question, that the holter was done while feeling the palpitations? If so, and no rhythm problems were found, the palpitations are probably nothing to worry about, if, however, you did not have symptoms while monitored, it could still be undiagnosed arrhythmia. Start by decreasing intensity of exercise, and consult a physician (start with primary care, or choose cardiolgist).

Talk to doctor again: The doctor who ordered and reviewed all the tests you have been through should be able to discuss the pros and cons of starting you on some medication. Sometimes it is a beta- blocker; I assume you do not consume excessive amounts of coffee or some herbal meds.

During my period, I get shortness of breath, fatigue, and heart palpitations during exercise. Is this normal? It's very scary.

Not normal: One should not have those symptoms at your age during a period or during exercise. Schedule a visit for an evaluation. You may need to start with a primary care doctor.
