Wake up in middle of night with racing heart, only when I sleep by heater and room seems too hot, heart slows down when I go out in cooler air, why?

Cool environment: Is generally more conducive for sleep. Are you anxious when you wake up? Short of breath or gasping? This could be a physiologic response to over-heating but if you answered yes to either of those questions than evaluation would be prudent. Take care. ...Read more

Less caffeine: Caffeine, nicotine, fever, dehydration, anemia can all aggravate a tendency to get a rapid pulse. There are also problems with the electrical control of the heart that may need to be treated with medicine or sometimes other procedures. See your doctor for testing. Try to count the beats per minute when you have the symptoms to determine the actual rate, notice if it's irregular. ...Read more

Anxiety help. I get anxiety for everything I play lots of video games when things get intense I get anxiety and get a racing heart. How do I calm down: (?

Try breath work: Breathing in different patterns can change your body feel and chemistry. A slow (count 3)full nasal inhale, holding it in lungs (6) and long complete blowing out like candles (8-9) will calm the anxiety. Repeat the cycle about 5 times and you'll feel the change - it lowers blood pressure too. It looks like smoking. Also, it you don't like the feeling - don't play those games - duh! ...Read more

For friend...She is having chest pains. It radiates down her arm and severe cramping in her legs and racing heart?

For friend...She is having chest pains. It radiates down her arm and severe cramping in her legs and racing heart?

Chest pains: Chest pain radiating down your arm suggests heart disease. There is no obvious connection to cramps in the legs. To assess the type of chest pain ask these questions: 1. Does it occur with exertion or after eating or being upset? 2. Does it stop with several minutes of rest? 3. Does it feel like pressure under the middle of the sternum. 3 yes=high ; 2 yes=medium risk; 1 yes=lower; 0 yes=very low. ...Read more

At night while sleeping, I wake up with a racing heart&tons of drainage down throat. I cough after. The fluid&racing heart go handinhand, for months now?

Postnasal drip: Postnasal dripping of mucus while you are recumbent in bed may be caused by excessive dryness or dust collection in your bedroom. I believe that the rapid heart beat is secondary to the nasal dripping and not due to cardiac pathology. Taking an antihistamine like benadryl (diphenhydramine) at bedtime may prevent symptoms but avoid decongestants like Sudafed or neosynephrine nasal spray which accelerate the heart ...Read more

In this manner you can ascertain whether or not you are having an arrhythmia (or in other words abnormal heart rhythm). Its all guesswork until you do this. ...Read more

Can you die from waking up with a racing heart in panic mode? Ex: from a nightmare, or a noise making you wake up scared?

Can you die from waking up with a racing heart in panic mode? Ex: from a nightmare, or a noise making you wake up scared?

Sleep issues: I agree w dr. Ali. However need to ask if you find that you wake up gasping for breath. Do you snore? Does your partner ever witness your breathing stop. It does sound like you are developing panic in response to nightmares (which will not kill you) but if you have sleep apnea that would need evaluation by a sleep specialist. The two issues sometimes co-occur. Take care. ...Read more

Are there any signs or ways to tell if a random racing heart is from anxiety or not before going to dr? No other symptoms with racing heart.

Difficult to tell: If you have anxiety first and then increased heart rate, the primary issue is probably anxiety with related tachycardia. If it's the other way around, then you still need to figure out the reason for tachcardia. Hyperthyroidism and suprventricular tachycardia come to mind as possibilities. You may need a holter monitor study to track your heart rate issues. You need a doctor's help with this. ...Read more
