I had a palpitation & felt breathless, weak and tired

I have just had lunch, had some pasta and a cigerette! I come back to work and just had a palpitation . Now i feel breathless, weak and tired, but fidgety at the same time. Do you think i ought to go and see a doctor or is it normal to have these. I have had about 3 of these in the past month. Thanks for your help!

To be honest, if they are happening infrequently there is nothing your doctor is going to be able to do for you. Keep track of what you are doing before, during and after these attacks as well as how long they last and the symptoms you have. That way when you do see your doctor you can have an idea of what might be triggering it. It's too difficult for a doctor to be able to diagnose something that happens 3 times a month for a few moments without additional information from you.

Hi, I have been having bad chest pains lately (it is like a sharp pain at the bottom part of my heart), I would also feel short of breath. This would often be accomponied by arrythmias or (and especially) heart palpitations. At first I thought it was just stress, but lately I have been feeling tired constently, I am also pale & nauteous & have head aches. Being only 18 I love sports! But the past week I litterally felt to weak to play. My heart would also get really sore. I am now ons iron defficiency pills. I completed my first warrior race today and am very happy to report that I had no discomfort in my heart as before whatsoever, BUT I am still constantly tired & feel physically weak. My muscles are like numb? Also, I can t help but notice this weird numb-like feeling in my left side chest? Should I be worried? Or am I just being paranoid?

I had a herpetic whitlow - sp? which caused lymphangitis, or red streaking up my hand and arm - about the same time, my heart started beating irregularly and I went on a 7 day course of Keflex. While on the Keflex, my heart was fine. The minute I went off the Keflex, the palpitations came back. I ve worn a heart monitor and was told that 2% of my heartbeats are extra but what I feel is that there is some sort of infection at play here even though my bloodwork has come back normal. Thoughts?

For the past two days I have been feeling ike I have heart palpitations or an out of control spasm or twitch in my chest area. I went to hospital but the tests revealed that I was okay in terms of heart beat and blood pressure. The doctor also said that what I was feeling didn t match my heart beat. In other words my heart beat was normal and was not going fast like I thought I was feeling. Now the fluttering or twitches has settled but are there slightly and when I get up to do the most simplest tasks I become tired. I have been sleeping most of the day and can not go to work. There is no pain in my chest either. My eyes feel tired too. I do remember that the night before I got this feeling I was trying to sleep and I could see flashes of light even though it was dark. I don t have headaches or feel like vomtiting either. These are some of the questions the doctors have asked me but they have not been able to give me an answer or any suggestions as to what is going on. Could you help?

Hello.. I am a 35 year old female and I have been noticing my heart is skipping every 5th to 8th beat. This is something that started all of a sudden. I do suffer from anxiety disorder and I do take medications daily for this. I drink plenty of water and exercise. I also drink at least 1 cup of coffee per day. I recently was put on a 24 hour holter monitor and the recording did show some palpitations. Since I had the monitor this has been occurring through the entire day. They don t stop. What should I do from here?

I am 16 years old girl and already a few days my heart palpitations. Do not get stressed, do not drink any alcohol, not smoke. This may indicate a heart pounding heart disease? In the four years I was sent to the├┐ echocardiography without cardiac problems only preventive pediatrician that due to my hydrocephalus exclude hypoplastic heart syndrome. This syndrome was excluded by echocardiography. If these my current heart problems (palpitations at rest) meant something more serious, followed by heart surgery? So what would it be? Heart disease? If it was this, what is the treatment?
