If : If you feel your heart racing and your not exerting yourself this is known as palpitations. If you have these sensations then you may want to go to your physician and he may provide you a monitor or refer you to a cardiologist (or a cardiac electrophysiologist, a heart electrician) who may place a 24 hour holter monitor if you symptoms on a daily basis or an event monitor if you have it less often. Then when you have symptoms you can document the time in a dairy for the holter or activate the record mode on the event monitor and call the recording in so your physicians can correlate what your heart rhythm is during your sensation of palpitations. This is one of our gold standards. I hope this is helpful. ...Read more

Why do I get heart palpitations upon exertion?

Why do I get heart palpitations upon exertion?

Tough to say...: There are certain rhythm problems that only come on with exertion. Palpitations however, are an unnatural awareness of your heartbeat, so even being severely deconditioned can do it. I'd find a cardiologist or cardiac electrophysiologist and have them run you on a treadmill while wearing ekg. If that doesn't work, we'd get you an "event monitor" to record the palpitations. ...Read more

Not usually: Palpitations in young people usually aren't dangerous -- but they can be annoying. Exercise and stress reduction can help. Some people get palpitations because of thyroid disease, and you might want to have your thyroid level checked. If you are having problems with lightheadedness, fainting, or shortness of breath, those are signs it might be something more serious. ...Read more
