Started experiencing a fast pulse and uneasiness. Reduce stress? Related to a roller coaster ride?

Hi I first started experiencing a fasst pulse and some uneasiness in the chest region a few months ago. After seeing my primary care doctor, he recommended to reduce stress and eliminate caffeine from my diet for a few days. He also did an EKG and basic blood work which both came out fine. The palpitations did not occur again until last Saturday night after coming back from an amusement park and riding a rollercoaster. Could the palpitations be related to riding the rollercoaster? Also I m also experiencing uneasiness in the chest today with minor sporadic chest pain .

Thank you for your query

Stress is definitely one of the reasons for uneasiness in chest.Since you haven't mentioned any other symptoms like lack of sleep , or less appetite i think you shouldn't really be bothered about it.

But since you have mentioned that you felt a chest pain it is recommended to definitely take an appointment with a cardiologist to check if everything else is alright.

If yes, then I feel you are absolutely healthy and fine. The sudden rise in bp and the uneasiness after the rollercoaster ride is very natural and obvious It potentially triggers high pulse rate.
Try to stay calm in any kind of stressful situation.This will be helpful to you all the time.

Hope this helps you.

Stay healthy!
