I have palpitations all the time. They are generally little momentary flutters or hiccups in my chest. Today however, had an epsidode where it felt like a fish was flopping around in my chest. It felt irregular, not fast. When I tested my BP, it was normal but the little icon for an irregular rythum came on the screen. I have also had a few episodes this year where I wake up in the middle of the night with my heart racing. These have led to panic attacks. I ve had a full cardiac workup and wore a halter monitor last year around this time. Could what I experienced today be mere palpitations or should I call my doctor?

for the past couple of days I ve been having racing heart beats. I ve taken deep breathes. my chest does not hurt. my left arm does not tingle. I workout 3 to 5 times a week. I wear a heart monitor on one day and I continue to check my heart rate when I m not wearing it while running.

I am a 24 and a half year old white female with 3 children ages 4 and under. My heart rate is normally on the higher side when I am pregnant and that s pretty much the only time I ever check it. But I ve been checking it a lot the past few days and every time it s been between 101-109bpm. Even after just waking up after sleeping. Sometimes I do feel like my heart is racing. Is this something I should get checked out by a doctor?

My brother is having a heart cath tomorrow. Apparently he has had a heart attack sometime in the last ten years.

His heart rate has become uncontrollable with meds and sontinues to beat at 131. He said the doctor told him some rate (he couldn't remember) was at 25 and should be higher. Can you perhaps clarify what this may mean?

I have been prescribed isoptin 240 ml per day as my blood pressure has been up to 165 over 93. Also I have been getting palpitation which at times last up to a couple of hours. Had a heart monitor put on . showed my heart rate going up to 114. resting at about 66. Which I know is good. the results of the monitor showed over 2000 ectopic episodes. Is this anything to worry about.
