Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
Normally when the heart beats, a signal starts at a particular point of the heart then travels along a certain pathway to stimulate the rest of the heart.
Abnormal beats such as palpitations can occur under different circumstances: if the 'signal' arises from a different part of the heart, if it arises from the same part but at a different rhymth, if there is blockage along the normal pathway, if the signal travels along a different path, if there is any enlargement of any aspect of the heart.
With a history of diabetes
, it would important to be assessed to rule out any problems. Assessment would involve blood tests to check for anemia
function as both of these can cause palpitations.
An ECG is also called for.
I hope this helps,
