Recent CT scan indicated mild thickening of left adrenal gland unchanged. I get heart palpitations when I lie on my left side. Is this serious?

Recent CT scan indicated mild thickening of left adrenal gland unchanged. I get heart palpitations when I lie on my left side. Is this serious?

Nothing serious: CT findings and palpitations are unrelated. If you are otherwise well, with no history of cancer, the mild thickening is most often unimportant. Palpitations are due to a sudden racing of the heart, or to premature heartbeats that feel like a skipped beat or a quick flutter. These palpitations are usually not an indication of heart disease.

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

A week ago started having heart palpitations 1st time and yesterday again and then twice today should I get it checked???

Check if persistent: If heart palpitations are very short-lived and last only a moment or a few seconds, they are probably benign and a nuisance but dangerous or life-threatening. If palpitations last longer i.e. minutes to hours and are associated with fainting, shortness of breath, chest pains, dizziness, etc. Then you should call you doctor to be checked. ...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

I sometimes get heart palpitations after eating tomatoes. Why?

Need a monitor: Although the palpitations you are experiencing may be a kind of "allergic" response, that is not likely unless there are other manifestations (like a skin rash) as well. It may be that you have an underlying arrhythmia or short circuit in the heart that is exacerbated by eating tomatoes. A cardiac monitor with a good tomato feast would help provide the answer. ...Read more

Seek a cardiologist: You will need to see a cardiologist in person so that your heart rhythm can be assessed. Starting with an ekg and possibly an home monitor such as a holter monitor (24-48hrs) an event monitor (up to 30 days) or in extreme cases a surgically implantable loop recorder (2-3years) as the palpitation may come and go and rarely are "caught" while in the doctors office. ...Read more
