The sensation you are feeling is called palpitations. They can be innocent or a sign of a more serious condition such as an arrhythmia of some type. At this point no one can tell you any more than that. If you have a heart murmur, there is no question that you should see a cardiologist to get the proper tests scheduled. Otherwise consult your doctor about your problem.

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
