Heart Palpitations Low Testosterone
I have low testosterone 148. I have had heart attack and stroke 4 yes ago. Can I take aandrogel 1.62 safely?
Yes.: As in any medication or substance, well-being is measured the level. Yes it has cardiovascular side effects which can be mitigated by giving a dose that is monitored as to the level in the body. A person's feeling of well-being is also important aspect in treatment and disease and would all have to be balanced. ...Read more
Palpitations is the symptom, not the diagnosis. They are the 'abnormal awareness of the beating heart'. This can include the heart going to fast, too slow, too hard, irregularly, skipping a beat. The causes are varied eg electrical problems (both sinister and not sinister), extra beats (mostly harmless), anxiety, thyroid problem. If persistent or worrying then get checked for ...Read more
I had low testosterone senc 8 yeras im now 48 years old. I have high blood pressure I on maximum dose of androgel how to avoid heart attack..
I have not seen many patients on testosterone for so long. Did you have testosterone injections before androgel?
Regarding concern regarding heart attack, I doubt it is linked to testosterone.
Start with your pcp and see a cardiologist if he/she recommends it. ...Read more
19 yr old female. Random heart palpitations. @ gym on low level elliptical 5 min: heart rate = 185, 14:40 min: heart rate = 194. Prickly skin. Why?
Normal: That's normal. The reason is: your exercise induces a large amount of endogenous catecholamine (adrenalin) which causes the heart to produce an occasional premature beat. This will be more frequent if you've been sweating as you lose potassium and magnesium through perspiration that must be replaced. Prickly skin is non-specific and and just an involuntary (autonomic) nervous system response. ...Read more
Uh-uh: Low estrogen does not cause palpitations. If it did, every woman over the age of 55 would be troubled with them. Low estrogen is, of course, physiologic (normal) in all women as they age, all men, and all children. If your estrogen level has recently become low, you may be troubled with a number of symptoms including palpitations but there isn't a cause and effect. ...Read more
Rearended on tues. Have whiplash. Thurs. Had severe heart palpitations/almost fainted while sitting, twice. Doc says I have low BP - is this related?
A whiplash involving the upper neck/ base of the shull could cause muscle spasm of the deep muscles in the area. The vagus nerve is in the area. It can affect heart rate among other functions. That in turn could lower you blood pressure and affect heart rhythm.
You many need to see an osteopathic physician who does manual treatments. ...Read more
I am experiencing heart palpitations and a low bp while on noratrytaline? I skipped last night but when I checked my bp was 87/66 HR138
Serious: These cardiovascular symptoms are serious and should be reported to your treating physician as soon as possible. Both palpitations and hypotension have been reported as side effects of nortriptyline. You may be referred for thyroid tests and to a cardiologist to determine the exact nature of your palpitations and for follow-up of your low blood pressure. ...Read more
I've consistently had low K levels (around 3.2). Could that level be causing fatigue, heart palpitations, and severe constipation?
Was having heart palpitations and nurse said very low magnesium then said I didn't have an electrolyte imbalance. Isn't low magnesium an imbalance?
I have noticed heart palpitations more frequently. Every 30 seconds. Had before but not this often. Stimulant use very low. Should I be worried?
See your physician: Or other health care provider. There is no way to know whether you should be concerned without a full medical evaluation, which would include your complete history, review of systems, family history and a physical examination. Your PCP will probably want to do an electrocardiogram as well, and may want a 24 hour ECG recording called a Holter Monitor. In the meantime stop all caffeine/stimulant use ...Read more
I am experiencing low blood pressure and heart palpitations (worsened by: caffeinated drinks (coffee, tea, soda, etc.)).
It sounds like you: Could have a form of autonomic dysfunction. In general increasing the salt intake in your diet and maintaining good hydration is sufficient to resolve the problem. If you remain symptomatic see a specialist like a cardiologist or electrophysiologist for further management. On the internet check sites by Dr. Blair Grubb for further details and management suggestions. ...Read more

Low bp on home monitor 90/62 and bp at doctors while ago 130/70.which is accurate. Heart palpitations and chest pain, doc says anxiety 19 year old femal?
Both likely okay: You are likely more relaxed at home and the lower reading is likely to reflect that. At the office you are likely more anxious and that could raise it some. Make sure the batteries in your home unit are fresh & it is good to take you level 3 times over a 5 minute period & average the nuber. These devices are seldom as accurate as the ones at a docs office. ...Read more

My dermatologist gave me Ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for my acne and was wondering if 3mg/0.03mg considered a low dosage? Also can Ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) cause heart palpitations?
Standard dose: That's the only dose they come in - it's the standard dose. It does not cause palpitations. ...Read more

I have a cortisol level of 0.8. Can that cause weight gain, extreme fatigue, joint pain. Low bp, heart palpitations? What should I do?
Complicated: Normal 8 am cortisol is 8-23 micrograms per deciliter. Since you don't use units, it's not clear if you're normal or not. Moreover, even if it's low as I think you're hinting, your Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) may have suppressed it. A cortrosyn stimulation test is needed. Finally, low cortisol could cause fatigue and low BP, but not the other symptoms. Clearly, you need to stay under your doctor's care! ...Read more
I was told that I have mod. Blood in urine but no UTI, what can be an issue? I am having low back pain (pinching) & unusual heart palpitations.
Micro-hematuria: Microscopic hematuria is fairly common and often from a benign familial tendency. Unfortunately, blood in the urine is also often the only sign one gets from some conditions that need to be discovered, like bladder or kidney cancer or kidney stones. See a urologist for workup. It likely will involve an office cystoscopic exam and upper urinary tract imaging. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with a Vitamin D Deficiency. My lab results came back at 25. When I tried to supplement 1000iu of D3 I started getting heart palpitations, joint pain and anxiety. How else can I address low vitamin d.?
Sunshine & diet: Although physicians are very cautious about recommending sun exposure, studies have shown that 15-20 minutes of skin sun exposure provide up to 1000 IU of Vit D, and sunlight is helpful for mood disorders, but not every day is sunny or warm. Wild salmon, 3.5 oz serving, contains up to 988 iU, but farm salmon is 25% less. I have not heard of joint pain and anxiety from Vit D. Something else?? ...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. ...Read more
