I still feel the palpitations, kindly help me

It never ceased to creep me out. I m a melancholic so it s natural for me to be stressful, but there are moments when I m not stressed and I still feel the palpitations . . . Weird? What s more amusing is that I ve had it since I was fifteen. A few years have passed since then. And I normally do not intake caffeine , unless you include tea. I never drink coffee. It s weird because I feel as though something s wrong with my heart and I m eventually gonna have a heart failure (at the merciful age of se--I mean, eighteen). Which also reminds me that I visited my family doctor concerning this issue approx. 8-9 months ago, and all that was said to me is that it s nothing to worry about. However, I only undergone one simple pulse test. I m not exactly saying that I do not trust the words of a doctor. But in the end I m an individual with little assurance of words spoken by only one person. I m sorry to trouble ye, dear members of this cute community. And thank you in advance. To answer the questions below, I do not smoke. However, I do intake low quantities of wine from time to time.. Update: I do not workout at all. I do take a walk once a month, if it s of any significance. I m not active physically at all. I m also not on any medications whatsoever. I refuse to consume chemicals of any sort.

Do you smoke? I had the palpitations, mine were totally down to smoking and caffeine Safe limits of caffeine are thought to be 250-500mg per day. 1 cup of tea is between 85-100mg per mug. Coca cola is about 36mg per can. Coffee can be up to 210mg per mug. Try cutting down the caffeine and if you smoke wean off them and see if this helps. They can also be down to increased levels of adrenaline, this can be linked to stress and anxiety (both reactions produce excess adrenaline)

I have been having heart palpitations at night for the past 2 weeks that wake me up out of my sleep. For the past 2 weeks I have been living on no sleep because of this and it is miserable. I have had anxiety issues in the past, but I really feel as though this is different. When sleeping I kind of feel like I "forget to breathe" and get a heart palpitation just when I'm about to doze off. I had heart palpitations 2 years ago and went to a cardiologist in which the doctor did many tests and found nothing abnormal. I have competed in athletics my entire life and am a seemingly healthy 23 year old female.

I have been having what my doctor has called palpitations for the past month, i.e. my heart has been racing unpleasantly. She suggested thyroid or anameia and I have had blood tests, am awaiting the results. Also I had an ECG which is said to show nothing untoward. I am 66 years old and female and I am concerned about the experience of heart racing. I feel as if I am anxious, frightened, and yet I know I'm not. Sometimes these effects last over half an hour, and sometimes eating sweet things sets it off.

I've been treated for heart palpitations before - I don't have them as frequently as I used to - however - on occassion it will feel as if my heart is like a fish flopping around out of water in my chest. You can see it and feel it very clearly. Yesterday it seemed to happen quite frequently. Today it seems fine. Is this something I should worry about? It doesn't seem like something normal.
