I Have Heart Palpitations Every Day
Having heart palpitations randomly (last 2-10 min.), mostly at night before bed or if i get hungry during day. Dr also says I have benign heart murmur?
Odds are you're fine: Palpitations at rest are common in healthy young adults. Stay hydrated, get enough sleep and exercise, avoid caffeine. If you have experienced significant decrease in exercise tolerance, if the palpitations get worse with exertion, if they cause dizziness or fainting, or if they don't improve within several weeks, go see a doctor. Benign heart murmurs are benign. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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.

I recently had a panic attack and now every time I drink any caffeine my heart starts pounding and hurting?
Get medical eval.: The fact that there is a direct connection between caffeine and the symptoms is a good reason to get an evaluation as soon as possible by a physician. Anxiety caused symptoms that might resemble these would most likely cluster around stressful situations. There is no good reason to not get an expeditious medical assessment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Needs evaluation: A good evaluation by your doctor, can understand the types of palpitations and identify rare, but dangerous associated conditions.

Last night after eating, I had constant heart fluttering lasting through the night with pounding heart beat. I do have gerd. Is this normal?
Tachycardia : The symptoms you relate suggest a rapid heart beat- there are many different rhythms and causes and you must get checked out by a cardiologist with EKgs and 24 hr holsters and get a thyroid function test to determine cause especially if it repeats. Likely it was a sinus tachycardia but sometimes people can get ventricular tachycardia. Atrial fibrillation is also a possibility. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

When i took amphetamine, i had 120bpm and did extra beats every 2nd beat for 30min. Was that dangerous?
Potentially: Anything that causes your heart to race or to skip beats could be quite dangerous. I hope this experience teaches you a valuable lesson that you should venerate, protect, and nourish your body. Stressing it unnecessarily makes no sense. You have only one heart so please don't break it. Be kind to yourself. If this is difficult for you ask for help from a friend, family member, or your md. ...Read more

What did the event..: Recorder show? If despite you having symptoms, the event recorder did not show a concerning heart arrhythmia, and if all other results are also not concerning, you may just be able to notice your heartbeat more than most people. Please make sure to see your doctor to follow up, and if there are any changes in your symptoms, or any chest pain, lightheadedness, dizziness or other concerns. ...Read more
I am on flecainide and diltiazam to control arrhythmia. I have a steady heart beat but experience palpitations in my chest when i exercise. Why?
Heart was beating fast. Like every three beats i felt it take a fast pause then beat again three beats. No pain. Beats normal now, what could b cause?
Good description: You are accurately describing a "regularly irregular" rhythm which is also called "trigeminy" if the skip is every 3rd beat, and "quadrigeminy" if it's every 4th. This can be of either atrial or ventricular origin. If it recurs, you should have a 24 hour recording of your heart rhythm (holter) to better characterize it. ...Read more
My heart is fluttering, flopping, skipping beats. Happens when I have trained for months and then relax at night?
More noticeable then: People are more aware of palpitations at night or other times when they're quiet and resting because they're not distracted and are more sensitive to internal sensations. Odds are your heart skips during the day too, as does everyone else's. If you've never been evaluated, and especially since you're involved in high level workouts, you should be evaluated, at least once, if you never have been. ...Read more
Every night my heart beats real fast while trying to sleep. I know i was told by my doctor that I have extra heart beats, but you only at bedtime?
Monitor pulse: It may not be only while sleeping. Since everything around is quiet and you can feel heart beating, you may notice only at night while sleeping. Next time also count the pulse rate. If it's really high what you described the you need to see a cardiologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sometimes my heart beats really fast and other times it skips a beat. Am I having a heart problem?
Maybe: Anything involving your heart is worth checking out. Consider thyroid or adrenal diseases, dehydration, medications, chemical imbalances. Too much caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, drugs, stress, and not enough sleep are other big causes. Sometimes there is a "wiring" problem in your heart that makes it go out of rhythm. See your md. ...Read more
Acid reflux: Is the most likely reason. With stomach acid splashing into your esophagus.

I have palpitations.extra beats and now latley racing heart.i have been on vitamin d 50,000 once a week from doctor .do i need magnesium too.
You could ..: as magnesium and/or potassium supplementation probably will not hurt - though magnesium can cause diarrhea and potassium can also be bad for your heart in too high a dose. But it's probably more important to identify what triggers your palpitations and try to avoid those things. But in general, minimizing stress and avoiding stimulants(that means caffeine and nicotine) should also help. ...Read more
