Irregular heartbeat, sweaty palms, shaking uncontrollably, heart racing. Treatment?

by XXXXX I am 25yr old frmale. I don t smoke , or drink heavily. I have experienced some of the symptoms listed here. I ve woken up with an irregular heartbeat and breathing as well as sweaty feet & palms. Sometimes shaking uncontrollable as if I am cold, but i m not. I ve felt my heart and it feels like it is about to jump out of my chest. When your heart races, you breath heavier & faster; which in turn burns your oxygen faster. Not enough oxygen in the blood stream causes alot of issues. I have many mornings where i ve woken up and have felt exhausted, but do not remember waking up or having the heart racing symptoms.

Hi,
There are a number of possible causes for your symptoms.
Anxiety, heart arrhythmia, thyrotoxicosis, excessive . I would suggest you discuss these symptoms with your doctor as it would be impossible to comment any further without more detail or investigations.

Hi,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

As per the description of your clinical symptoms, it seems you have the possibility of following conditions, but should be ruled out with proper diagnostic lab tests.

1.EKG
2.serum electrolytes
3.complete blood picture
4.thyroid profile.

As you are not a sober, i dont suspect possibility of alcohol withdrawl symptoms.

regards,
DR.SIVAYOGI
