Palpitations: Palpitations have many causes from anxiety through anatomic and physiologic abnormalities. The feeling of bounding usually relates to the volume of blood pumped with each palpitation. There is no simple single answer for the question. If you're bothered by the feeling should consult a dr. To see if the problem can be clarified. ...Read more

Started new med, 2.5 mg norvasc (amlodipine). Noticed heart palpitations, getting stronger. Cause for concern? I have mild mitr. Valv.Prolpse.)

Norvasc-ok: Norvasc doesn't worsen mvp or palpitations but bysolic is a better medicine for those issues. If you're not on the maximum dose, (up to as much as 40 mg daily), you might feel better to be off Norvasc and, instead, have your bystolic (nebivolol) dose titrated upward ...Read more

I started experiencing heart palpitations after switching from Atacand (candesartan) to Lisinopril. Does Lisinopril 20mg cause heart palpitations?

Usually not: Heart palpitations are not one of the "common" adverse reactions caused by Lisinopril, but that does not mean Lisinopril never causes this reaction. Different people can react to medications in different ways. I recommend you letting your doctor know about your side effect and switch you to another medication. ...Read more

Having on and off heart palpitations since last week. my heart races when I walk and when I wake up in the morning and when the weather is hot. cause?

Time to see a doctor: A young woman who feels palpitations should be checked by her primary care doctor (family medicine or internal medicine, not Ob-Gyn) to make sure her body is ok from a general check-up point of view, and to listen to her heart. It could just be that she is out of shape and trying to exercise herself back into shape. But, it could also be that her heart is beating irregularly for another reason. ...Read more

After eating I have heart palpitations that make me cough and cause me breathing difficulties.I checked my heart and results came ok. What could it be?

Palpitations: There are several causes of palpitations, so the evaluation of your heart should include blood testing, ECG, echocardiogram, and possibly some additional cardiac testing. Since you also have coughing you should have a chest X-ray. The food related issue makes allergy response or aspiration both possible problems. See your doctor for further eval. ...Read more

I read being dehydrated can be a cause of heart palpitations. So then how many ounces of water a day for adult female, lightly active, 130lb?

I read being dehydrated can be a cause of heart palpitations. So then how many ounces of water a day for adult female, lightly active, 130lb?

Marketing, Marketing: While dehydration may ? heart rate & sensations, especially for those already demonstrating these behaviors, it is not a primary cause, only another variable. In comfortable environment, young people in fairly good health can get by, indefinitely, on as little as 0.5 Liter/day up to as much as 25 Liters/day, a 50-fold range, of liquid intake (all liquids, most of which=water). no reliable answer. ...Read more

I ate flaxseed months ago and had heart palpitations. Now today I ate chia seeds in a recipe and now having heart flutters again. Do these cause this?

I ate flaxseed months ago and had heart palpitations.  Now today I ate chia seeds in a recipe and now having heart flutters again. Do these cause this?

Possible allergy: I've never heard of either flax or chia seeds causing heart palpitations. This could be a coincidence (just because you eat something and then get a symptom does not mean that was the cause of the symptom). It is possible you are allergic to flax and chia seeds, as palpitations can be caused by food allergies. Try these again (separately).If every time you eat them you get palpitations then avoid. ...Read more

Why do diet pills and sugar blockers cause me heart palpitations and anxiety. These were prescribed by a doc. Should i continue?

Why do diet pills and sugar blockers cause me heart palpitations and anxiety. These were prescribed by a doc. Should i continue?

Diet pills: You did not say what diet pills you are taking but many are similar to amphetamines, which can cause increased heart rate & blood pressure. Some people are very sensitive to amphetamines & need a smaller dose. Also, they are contraindicated in people w/ cardiac problems or who have a family history cardiac problems. Perhaps another doc can address the "sugar blockers" part of your question. ...Read more

I Had a sleep study last night with CPAP and have been experiencing heart palpitations most of the day.  Can initial CPAP cause Vagus nerve irritation?

Typically no: That does not usually happen. It can trigger changes in your level of carbon dioxide since with apnea you tend to retain more and CPAP will force you to blow that out. If this is persistent go get an EKG. Heart arrhythmia is common in apnea including heart block, PVCs and atrial fibrillation. Some can be dangerous. ...Read more
