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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
You Must See Your Dr: Night shift workers have more palpitations and heart problems than non-shift workers. Partly this may be due to increased stress and sleep deprivation associated with night shift work. But also the night shift interferes with your bodies biological clock (circadian rhythm); which in turn is synched to daylight and darkness.

Should i be concerned about heart palpitations when i'm not lying down? I get heart palpitations throughout the day with seemingly no cause. I have no pre-existing conditions and i'm not taking any medications. Should i be concerned?
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
After i hiccup, it feels like im going to stop breathing, and sometimes i get heart palpitations. Does this sound familiar? What could be going on?
Palpitations: Sometimes the sensation of diaphragmatic spasm (hiccup) can be confused with irregular heartbeats. That's the most serious thing i can think of without the opportunity to examine you. A doctor can easily diagnose this in their clinic if it's a frequent symptom, or send you home with a piece of equipment you wear that can catch your heart rhythm at home. I'd certainly see your doctor about this. ...Read more
I get heart palpitations from time to time and also get pins and needles in my arms and hands im only 22 what could this be?
Probably not serious: Although these symptoms may be due to real disease processes, the constellation of these associated symptoms in a 22 year old raise the spectre of hyperventilation syndrome, a benign situation with the rapid heart rate and tingling due to the physiologic and biochemical changes in the body induced by Adrenalin and elevation of the pH by overbreathing. To be safe, talk to your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
