It sounds very much like you are having eather runs of SVT (Supraventricular Tachycardia) or V-tach (Ventricular Tachycardia). How old are you? Do you have any other medical problems? Have you been screened for Wolfe-Parkinson-White, or Levine-Long. Both are heart conditions which cause spells of SVT. You could also have a thyroid or other endocrine problem. But honestly if your doctors can not figure it out I don't think anyone online is going to be able to help your from a paragraph you write.. lol sorry ;-)

I was on 50mg trazodone 10 days for insomnia. Worst drug ever. I don t take anything else other than levoxyl and estroven. I stopped taking three nights ago. The withdrawal is horrible. Don t suffer from depression at all until now going through this. Also heart palpitations, disorientation, depersonalization, headache and of course absolutely no sleep. Any idea how long the withdrawal will cease given the short amount of time I took it?

I m 25 weeks pregnant , and all the pregnancy books I ve read say that heart palpatations are not good during pregnancy, and to call your doctor if you experience them. Ive been having increasingly uncomfortable palpatations since friday night, and cannot contact my doctor. They only last a few beats, but are now occuring every few hours. do i need to go to the hospital? i cant really afford it unless it is necessary. (the palpatations seem to occur with an unexpected sense of anxiety and lately a lightheadedness ) i forgot to mention that i was born with a heart murmur that disappeared on its own but reappeared when i was 15 (when i passed out horseback riding!!) , then went into hiding again. Also, my last appointment was friday afternoon, just before the palpatations started to occur, and everything was fine then; even my blood pressure, which was excellent.

Heart palpations? Should I worry? Serious answers only please that actually help.? I think this might be a palpatation issue, but either way it worries me. I only notice this when I m relaxing and not doing anything. My heart is beating normal, but I can feel for a few seconds that there is a vibration in my chest . I don t know if this is a heart thing, but it worries me. I m 27 and there s no heart disease in my family. Do I need to go to a doctor , or is this normal? It happens, that I notice that is, maybe twice a day at most and I don t think it s everyday. It s been going on for about 6 weeks. I don t feel weird or not normal otherwise. Yes I know I need to probably go to a doctor, I m just waiting for an apt. and am curious if anyone who has medical knowledge has any ideas! I don t drink caffine, I don t smoke, drink, do drugs, etc. lol. I just stay at home with our one year old!
