You don't say how old you are? Palpitations can be caused by stress, caffeine, exercise etc. However, the fact that you say you are also suffering from chest pain, shortness of breath and dizziness is more worrying. There should be a Dr standing in for your own, I would suggest you make an appointment. If you are unable to see a Dr soon, go to the Emergency Department as you ought to have an ECG and blood tests done to rule out anything which needs to be treated.

Can anybody advice me the reason for heart palpitation, especially in the night just before going to bed or in sleep. I checked with my Dr who checked ECG Cholestrol etc and said no problem and gave some vitamin tablets, then it decreased, after one week again started. Anybody have similar experiences?

My husband chews a can a day of chewing tobacco and has for 30 plus years . Recently he has been experiencing heart palpitations. He was checked out a few years ago but they said it was nothing. He has taken on a new position in his job as a District Mgr. I was thinking it is anxiety related. I did get him an appointment with his doctor.

I have heart palpitations now. I am a licensed acupuncturist. I have listened to my heart when this is happening and it sounds like what is described as premature atrial or ventricular contractions. I never had this until recently. Last fall, I had chest pain and nausea and slight shortness of breath when I woke up one morning. I went to the ER and was evaluated. They diagnosed me with idiopathic chest pain. I went back 2 more times for the same thing and same result - chest wall pain or idiopathic chest pain. There were no palpitations then. Later on, I have had these palpitations and a slight feeling of phlegm in the chest. I do cough up a little thin mucous from time to time. It is kind of worrying because I have never had this before. I am 43, I worked out for most all of my life and was in very good shape. It is suspected that I have Acute Intermittent Porphyria, as I started becoming very chemically sensitive with many environmental allergies in 2001. I did acupuncture and chiropractic and now no longer have chest pain but I have these palpitations. My blood pressure had gone up significantly last year. It had always been around 110/70 or so and it went up to 165/110 for a bit last fall when this happened. Later, I had gotten it down to 110/70 for a while again, however, it has recently run up to 135/83 or so and has stayed around that level for the past few weeks. Currently, I do not have medical insurance and am wondering if this could be serious, should I be evaluated again, and what is this most likely?

I am taking biaxin and cefprozil 250 mg together, 2 of each twice a day for 14 days. Have had pneumonia before, about this time of year for the past 2 years. I have taken this now for 10 days, and recently have had shortness of breath. Would this be related to the medicine?

I am a 57 year old woman. I have hypertension well controlled with prescription meds for 2 years. recently I went for routine exam, doc asked me whether I had shortness of breath, irregular heart beats, lightheadedness, or left arm tingling. No to all of the above. Why did doc recommend echo stress? BTW: my results came back normal (Thank goodness!), yet now I have a $9,000 bill for a test that was normal. Could any other test have been done as a heart function screen before the echo stress?
