Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome and thanks for your query.
I understand your concern.
Please check his temperature with a clinical thermometer when he is experiencing the chills. If it is high, he needs to be investigated for an infection.
If the temperature is normal, it is possible that he is having a panic attack and he should be reassured. If he has a fast heart rate and trembling, it would suggest a heightened sympathetic nervous system activity and can be reduced with a small dose of 10mg of Inderal twice a day if he does not have any other medical problem or asthma.
Do get back to me if you have further queries.

For the past 2 years I ve been having this fast beating heart. It beats even when I am sitting or laying down. And it s starting to interfere with my life because I get so tired that I can t do anything. Sometimes it beats so fast that it causes me to have a panic attack. So I was wondering what it may be and how I can fix it. Plus I have heard of these things that are called Beta Blockers, I was wondering if they could be used for my condition. And I m 15 by the way, so it shouldn t be any severe heart problems or anything.

Hi, I had one episode where i felt my heart had trouble beating and felt like I was going to pass out, as soon as I stood up it went away and my heart was beating fine. I went right to the doctor and he said my heart sounded fine and that it was a panic attack. I was not convinced so I went back to another doctor and he said it sounded great!!! Do doctors really know if something is wrong by just listening to the heart? Since then, which was 2 weeks ago I have had no problems. Thank you Crystal

Hi, I smoked marijuana last night and my heart beat was insanely fast. I felt it pumping through my shirt. It wasn t a panic attack because I ve been a smoker for a few years but stopped for a while. As of recently i picked it back up and this has started ever since. What should i do?
