I m getting them almost every day palpitations, what is happening to me ?

Okay, I had my first one in gym class. Two months later or so, which is now, I m getting them almost every day Idk what s happening to me. It doesn t happen in the morning. My heart beat is fine in the morning. It s just when I m walking and stuff and doing a lot of activity. My mom says I m a hypochondriac and won t take me to the doctor. I don t know what to do. It feels like there s a fish flopping in there sometimes. Sometimes I get chest pain but not often, and I ve ALWAYS had trouble breathing, but it s getting worse, especially when I read about people dying when they have heart palpitations because of something electrical in the heart. every time I heart about someone dying, I can barely breathe. I just exercised before I got on here, and when I sat down and read some more stuff about hearts, I can barely breathe. I feel like there s a tightness in my throat and I just want to cry.. I ve been shoving bunches of fruit down my throat, and I ve given up saturated fats and everything. I won t go near ANYTHING unhealthy anymore, and I m a mess. What if I drop dead ? HELP ? I have anxiety , though, but I never feel anxious when this stuff happensssss. Ugh :/ Whatever. Oh, anddd I have counseling and everything, and I know what they re going to tell me.. that I just am psyching myself out.. but I think it s deeper than that. xox Kels

thanks for the query
what you're describing sounds like a panic attack due to anxiety I would suggest you consulted a doctor get an ecg done just in case to rule out any pathology in the heart and convince your mom it is essential to rule out something serious
take care

for past few weeks i am feeling some unpleasant palpiation (feels like something in my chest stops and comback again.. like flip-flop)so i went to see a doctor. they examined my blood pressure and done a ECG test while i was resting for couple of minutes. my blood pressure was absolutely normal and so is the ECG test (during that period i did not sense any papitations as well). However i am still getting those palpitations and i feeling like they are comming quite often now. i used to smoke but i have quit now. can someone please advise how shall i describe this to my Doctor and what test i must undertake in order to be on a safe side... and how dangrous could that papitation be? could something like palpitation happens due to gas or something else as well? please advise... thanks

For about the past 3 days I ve noticed what I believe would be considered heart palpitations, it s slowly gotten worse daily. It was only happening a couple times, but today it happened a LOT. It feels like my heart will suddenly beat like 3 times VERY HARD causing it hard to catch my breath, this happened when I was sweeping the kitchen floor, taking a shower, moving around trying to get comfortable in bed...very minimal exertion.

I have been feeling that my heart beats fast but in reality is not. It started two days ago when i was sitting down in class, the two days before i had drinked cofee and didnt get enough sleep. But i feel rested and im prety sure the cafeine is not in my body anymore. What can be happening to me. Oh just yesterday i felt the need to cry.

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
