I'm glad your seeing your doctor for this complaint. When a patient feels their heart is skipping, beat too fast, too slow, or any other weird feeling related to their heart's beat that they can notice - we call them palpitations. Most of the time these are totally harmless but do not cancel your appointment. Tell your doctor everything about your symptoms. He or she might send you to have what is called an EKG or electrocardiogram. They place harmless stickers on your chest, arms, and legs for a few minutes while they record your heart's rhythm. Best of luck to you.

But what could be the reason for this probem? I mean irregular heart beats at night? Could be due to? Some thing to do with my life style or it is a general phenomenon?

I have several symptoms that may or may not be related...I have sharp shooting pains on left side temporal area, dizziness, a couple of fainting spells, extreme fatigue & just recently had what my Dr. said was severe strep 7 now I am having a change in body chemistry & sweet smelling urine (kind of like chocolate). I have had bladder & kidney issues for quiet some time & frequent urination with blood in my urine. I have been running a slight fever (99-101)for a couple months off & on. Also have had very heavy & painful periods twice a month til I had a depo shot to try to ease the pain, now I have a period for a day or so then quit for a day or so & so on & so on. I have now started to experience excessive itching all over but mostly the palms of my hands & wrists & the soles of my feet. I have leg cramps often & have had low potassium a couple of times. I have had an irregular heartbeat for more than 2 yrs & palpitations however several heart tests have found nothing of concern. Was hospitalized recently for chest pains & had heart cath which was normal. chest pains are intense & radiate through to my back & happen a lot at night. i have had tons of tests & am scheduled for endoscopy in 2 wks but I feel sicker everyday & it seems I am getting nowhere...please help if you can.

I just got out of hospital after having a suspected silent heart attack 4 days ago. Symptoms were fainting, chest pains, pain in my arm, numb mouth, breathlessness and light headedness. I already take beta blockers for a fast irregular heartbeat, constant chest pain and breathlessness. I am always feeling very unwell with it. Tonight my ECG came back abnormal. I know this because I saw the printed copy in front of me. It also said abnormal T wave, possible inferior ischemia. When the doctor came to see me and send me home they failed to even mention it. What does that result mean? Should I go and see another doctor? Is there any other test I can have done? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
