Could heart palpitations be connected to asthma?

Could heart palpitations be connected to asthma?

Med side-effect: The most common reason for palpitations with asthma is increased heart stimulation by excessive use of bronchodilators like albuterol or theophylline. People with asthma often rely more on these reliever drugs than they should. Routine use of controller medications does not cause palpitations reducing the need to use reliever drugs. Palpitations can also occur from lack of oxygen in severe asthma.

What is my next move? Shall I take her to a cardiologist for a second opinion? My 14 yr old daughter who has had asthma has been suffering from heart palpitations shortness of breath, dizziness, chest pains and fatigued for weeks. She has been off the as

Yes: Palpitations are often nothing but teen years are when we see a spike in the diagnosis of svt. Her asthma medicines will speed her heart rate anyway which might explain all, but they could help trigger svt. A 24 holter monitor would really help if she is having palpitations on a daily basis. Yes see a pediatric cardiologist.

Been checking up with the heart and lung doc lung says only Asthma. Just walking down stairs I get winded bad. Inhaler not helping had 6 palpitations in less than a minute today? What could it be? Got a full heart work up and it’s clear.

Been checking up with the heart and lung doc lung says only Asthma. Just walking down stairs I get winded bad. Inhaler not helping had 6 palpitations in less than a minute today? What could it be? Got a full heart work up and it’s clear.

I advise continued: Evaluation. If it's "only asthma" the inhalers should be having some effect. Maybe steroids/Prednisone will need to be considered. Full work up likely includes CT/MRI, exercise echocardiogram and/or cardiopulmonary exercise testing. While anxiety would not be my first consideration, it has to be considered as another possibility. At your young age, a definite cause should be found/treated.

Would it be safe for me to go scuba diving when I have a heart condition, and palpitations, leaky valve, and a prosthetic heart valve and asthma?

Would it be safe for me to go scuba diving when I have a heart condition, and palpitations, leaky valve, and a prosthetic heart valve and asthma?

Wrong forum: We can often provide some medical advice based on the information you provide in the question. However, the question you ask would require that we have a full history, exam and list of meds. Becoming certified to do scuba would likely require medical clearance before a reputable source would let you rent the equipment. Talk to your treating docs and see if they think it is wise/possible.

Are heart palpitations benign?

Are heart palpitations benign?

Some are, some aren't: The presence and severity of underlying heart disease and the type of arrhythmia causing the palpitations will determine if they're benign. It's customary to examine the heart with echo and record the heart's rhythm with ekg and/or prolonged recording devices to determine the nature and safety of the symptom.

Are heart palpitations dangerous?

Depends: There are a variety of palpitations some dangerous some not. I may have just answered another question that could have been yours as well.

Its important if you are having them to see a cardiologist have a halter to monitor your heart ekg for a few days and find out what you have

Can someone die from heart palpitations?

Can someone die from heart palpitations?

Very unlikely: This is rather unlikely, but can potentially happen, dependent on what the palpitations represent.
