Hi.. Palpitation can occur due to physiological cause such as stress, anxiety and other psychogenic factors.. They could also be seen due to certain drugs such as triamterene (which can cause irregular pulse) that you have been, and other factors such as infection, anemia and other endocrine dysfunctions... Since your heart evaluation were normal it is unlikely to be due to heart problem, though there are chances that a repeat evaluation can show abnormalities..

This is just for information purpose.. What may be the cause for palpitation to occur can be found only by an examination by a doctor...

Well what is suggestive is that since its been a year you got yourself examined,you can have a physical evaluation done by a Cardiologist which is better than self medication considering its our Heart.

I was doing yard work in the heat (Southern Louisiana). Since then, my heart beat rises when I stand and skips beats. It stops when I lie down. BP is 130/85. I take baby aspirin. I m drinking a lot of water and made a juice of veggies and fruits. Do you have any other suggestions?

Hello Doctor, Recently, for the past three days, I have been experiencing heart palpations. I have been taking low dose aspirin and the symptoms will subside. However, last night they were so bad that I could not lie down. I had to sleep sitting up in the bed. I am feeling better today. Should I make an appt. with my doctor or go to the emergency room to be checked out?

I have had palpatations off and on for about 20 years now(I m 63). I can go months without having them and then I will have them hundreds of times a day for weeks. I am in good health-never smoked, alcohol only occasionally. Recently had blood work done and all tests were normal including magnesium,calcium,potassium, total cholesterol was 131 and HDL good. I am currently taking 25 mg of atenolol once daily. I had a holter monitor about 5 yrs ago and also an echo. Doctor tells me not to worry but it s hard not to.

In a recent medical exam, my BP was 142/92 and my pulse rate was 63. My SpO2 was measured twice (three minutes apart) and went from 96% to 93%. I had no medical history to report to the doctor. I was basically starting fresh with my healthcare. She said my vitals were normal and stable. She said my BP was likely due to my back pain (that led to the visit in the first place). But if my pressure was high, why was my rate low?? And, what is the significance of the drop in SpO2? Thanks.

I have a rash in my groin and my body is always itchy. For about 2 years I had rashes on both my feet. It seems to have cleared now but I still have to apply dipresone everyday. I take medication for high blood pressure - Micardi Plus, Zanidip and Spiractin. Are any of these causing my rash problems?

My husaband is 65 years old nad he told me that last night he experienced a sudden waive of dizziness, enough that he actually fell down. He has high blood pressure and on meds, but never diagnosed with anything else. He is currently working out of town and lives alone. I am very concerned. What could that be?

doctor1 MD

I feel kind of silly asking this, but my heart rate (resting) has been elevated all day -- ranging from 107 early am, up and down from 130 - 180 most of the day. I've been having episodes like this for several months, but not this bad or long lasting. I guess I'm just not sure what to do. Bp avgs 120/78 - 130/88.
