I occasionally get palpitations and mild tachycardia (max 108) upon standing. No explanation after testing. Could sedentary lifestyle cause this?

Probably normal: however there is a disease of the autonomic nervous system called positional orthostatic tachycardia (POTs) which could play a role. In addition the medications you are taking could cause this as well. Ask your physician to evaluate your autonomic system if this becomes a clinical problem for you. In the meantime hydration is key to management. ...Read more

Why would blinking or bright flashing lights cause heart palpitations with mild tremors?

Why would blinking or bright flashing lights cause heart palpitations with mild tremors?

The lights are most: likely not the cause of the palpitations and tremors. I suspect that the lights cause anxiety and the release of adrenaline. This hormone will definitely cause tremor and palpitations. You probably experience these symptoms in other anxiety provoking situations. ...Read more

Deconditioned: It sounds like you are out of shape. The nature of your palpitations could be evaluated with monitoring but with a normal stress echo they are unlikely to be pathological. Discuss this with your health care professional. I suspect additional testing will be reassuring. ...Read more

Sometimes feel mild spasm in food pipe and get palpitations.. Goes away after a about 30 seconds. What would cause it?

Hard to say: This may need a referral to look at your swallowing mechanism and a recording of your heart rhythm. The esophagus and the heart are close to each other. While waiting for a referral to GI and cardiology keep a record of any triggers and if they are associated with each other. All the best getting this figured out. ...Read more

I have had heart palpitations for 3 days now with mild discomfort I was diagnosed with costochondritis in 2013 can this cause palpitations?

No: Costochondritis is not a cause of palpitations. Chest pain/discomfort with palpitations should should be evaluated for alternative causes. Heart rhythm problems may or may not be the cause of the chest symptoms. Best is to see a doctor for formal evaluation and since symptoms are ongoing, , would consider this evaluation to be done promptly. ...Read more

I have heart palpitations on and off, and have mild chest pain, is this a serious problem? I am 18 and female

Common problem: Palpitations are very common in your age group. You should have your thyroid function checked by your doctor and get an ekg. If there is an abnormality it should show up there. If it happens less frequently, you may need a holtor monitor or an event monitor to catch the palpitations while it is happening. Usually they are benign but need to make sure there is nothing more serious going on. ...Read more
