Heart rhythm change: There are many different conditions that can cause the awareness of a different sensation - what we call palpitations.

If frequent or if other symptoms, see your doctor.

Always get heart palpitations when im running or doing exercises like my heart skips a beat then beats hard for a second. How to. Stop. This?

Medical check up to: Palpiations are often caused by irregular heart beats what you describe is very likely due to extra beats which can be best confirmed by your doctor who will likely do an ekg to confirm the nature and degree of abnormailty. In young people this can be caused by excess of coffee use or any caffeine containing drinks like coca cola. Alcohol can also bring them on.

I have trouble breathing and get heart palpitations when eating. Is this an allergic reaction?

I have trouble breathing and get heart palpitations when eating. Is this an allergic reaction?

Possibly: A thorough evaluation by an allergy & immunology specialist might be able to accurately exclude this possibility. Pulmonary function testing would likely be needed for this diagnosis. Do not seek an allergists opinion without bringing a dietary diary recording the foods that were eaten prior to the onset of your symptoms. Food allergy testing would be dictated by your diary.

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 do 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.

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

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.

I get heart palpitations a lot especially in the cold. I've had my heart checked a few times and they say its healthy. What causes these!?! help!

Many causes: Are you getting heart palpitation and then getting cold? Or are you expose to cold environment and then getting heart palpitation? Do you have cold intolerance? What kind of test was done to r/o a heart condition? Holter monitoring? Ecg can be normal an still have an arrhythmia. Anxiety disorders, panic attacks, thyroid disease, nutritional problems, etc. Consult a physician.
