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!

Hi,

Could you tell me whether Lanzaprazole has been linked in any way to causing ectopic heart beats? Currently I am taking 30mg every morning to combat acid, but have been experiencing more than normal ectopic heartbeats in the last week or so.

Would be grateful for your advice and any help you could give me on ectopics. I would add that I have had many tests to check out my heart and it seems in good shape. It's just that one AF attack 4 years ago seems to have sparked off these awful ectopics.

Many thanks,
k,m.,

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.

My husband is 80 years old and has been diagnosed with congenial heart dease. His heart is only pumping half the speed of a normal heart beat. And now his lungs are filling with fluid. He also has Alzheimer's.
