Hi, After only a week cleanse, I drank a glass of red wine and in the night had lower left palpitations when lying on my left side. This morning I drank a cup of decaf coffee and my tinnitus is louder than I can remember. My question is can alcohol and decaf coffee cause these symptoms or could there be something else bigger to think about? Thanks for your time.

For the past couple of days I have been having very bad palpitations (skipped heart beats). It usually occurs in the afternoon/evening after I have done my house chores, going for a small walk, or eating. I notcied it happens a lot after exercising (which I don t do very often). I am 31 years old, female, do smoke cigarettes, no drugs or alcohol. I ve been to the ER several times for this and they never find anything wrong. I don t have regular health insurance so I can t see a family doctor. I don t know what else to do. Any advice?

Hi there, otherwise healthy 37 yo female. Normal BP/Cholesterol etc. Have been suffering from occasional palpitations (feels like skips in my chest which forces me to cough for the past 2 1/2 years. I only get them a couple of times a month and sometimes I can go months without getting them. I am on 20mg Celexa for anxiety which was caused by these palps which really freak me out. I ve also had two episodes of really fast heart beat which I think was due to dehydration and not eating properly those days, Ended up in the emergecy room the first time that happened, all check out o.k. I ve been to a cardiologist, had a holter twice, numerous ekgs and been told these skips are normal that everyone gets them and that I am more prone to feeling them. My GP suggests upping the dose of celexa to 40mg which may help. I also take magnesium which seems to soothe them, do not drink caffeine at all and avoid simple sugars with the exception of alcohol from time to time and I do notice the day after drinking wine I tend to get them. I am mainly after some reassurance that these will not kill me and your advice on how to live with them. Thank you!

I had afib. I had an ablation and the afib was corrected. I also have apace maker . i send a transmission monthly. Currently my heart is pacing itself and as of 2 weeks ago it still showed no signs of a fib. But i have been experiencing skipped beats. I noticed that on some mornings when I wake up they are more prominent. Why the skipped beats and why more prominent in the am?

My husband has been in a-fib on several occasions in the last month; right now he's in sinus-rythym. He also is having constant belching all day & night. Could the a-fib be triggered by the belching? His gall bladder was taken out 5 years ago. He was told he could still have symptoms. He has been watching what he eats, and still has the belching. He is also taking prilosec each morning, which does no good. Is any of this related to heart disease, which he has?
