Is It Normal To Have Heart Palpitations

The causes are varied eg electrical problems (both sinister and not sinister), extra beats (mostly harmless), anxiety, thyroid problem. If persistent or worrying then get checked for ...Read more
Fairly common.: Hormonal changes can cause premature beats and runs of rapid beating. If they continue to recur, they merit a careful cardiovascular evaluation, including an EKG, complete history, physical exam and blood tests, including tests for anemia, kidney function and thyroid function. Treatment with beta blockers and other drugs can help whether there's another cause or simply hormonal changes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I suffered from heart palpitations. Doctor said it is PVC and benign. Is it. Ekg and echo normal.
Sounds benign: It appears you have had the appropriate tests. I suggest you limit your caffeine intact, and eat a balanced diet. If there's continued concern, you may need a cardiac stress test, which is an ekg during controlled exercise, or chemical injection. Premature ventricular contractions are "extra" beats that occur, and can be caused by caffeine, fatigue, stress, and chemical imbalance. Good luck. ...Read more

Yes!: Tachycardia is rapid heart beat >90/minutes. HR varies with Emotional and Physical state. And subjective feeling of rapid HR should be quantified with checking HR at that time for at least 1 minutes.

Echocardiogram was done to se if there is any structural cause for your"Tachycardia" ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Heart Aware: Some people are more heart aware than others. Most people do not feel their heart in their chest unless they are lying down on the left side. It may be normal for you but there are a few abnormalities that could make this a more prominent symptom for you. It would be worth your time to seek an evaluation by a health care provider to exclude anything significant being wrong. Reassuring too. ...Read more
Maybe?: Let's assume that this question is serious for the moment. The next logical question would be whether palpitations also occur with other types of exertion. If so, it's possible that you have a supraventricular tachycardia. If these palpitations only occur while masturbating, i wouldn't worry too much. There aren't a whole lot of (any) arrhythmias that occur only with this particular activity. ...Read more
