is likely but not the only cause. There could be several reasons - it sometimes happens normally also! Anxiety may not be the case with you - random and no relation, as you say.
It may be Mitral Valve Prolapse
, anomalous pathways and so on.
Proper treatment needs proper diagnosis. First thing to do will be to see a cardiologist and get examined - especially during one such episode. In this situation, we start with routine ECG, ECHOcardiogram
, blood tests (cell count, sugar, thyroid
). If there is no clue, we go further - 24 to 48 hour ambulatory ECG monitoring (Holter).
Your doctor will decide on the need for medications - beta blockers for example can help in both anxiety and palpitation
Wishing you a speedy recovery
