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!

Hey, I was diagnosed with an eating disorder and the effects were secondary amenorrhea and bradycardia. My resting rate rate then was 45 and they said it could be reversed but I was wondering if it was possible to reverse it in a week? I ve been following their orders of eating more for about 5 days now and my resting heart rate is between 70-80 every time I check it.

I had a herpetic whitlow - sp? which caused lymphangitis, or red streaking up my hand and arm - about the same time, my heart started beating irregularly and I went on a 7 day course of Keflex. While on the Keflex, my heart was fine. The minute I went off the Keflex, the palpitations came back. I ve worn a heart monitor and was told that 2% of my heartbeats are extra but what I feel is that there is some sort of infection at play here even though my bloodwork has come back normal. Thoughts?

My name is Jennifer. I am a 41 year old female, 5 9 , 125 LB. Over the past 10 years I have had symptoms of arrhythmias , chest pain, breathing problems (inability to breath deeply), coughing and severe hoarseness usually coinciding with the other problems. It seems to be getting slowly worse as I get older. I sleep sitting up. If I lay down I risk waking up with significant chest pain, choking and arrhythmias. I tried to get a diagnosis in my 30 s but no one found the source of my problem before I lost my insurance and stopped pursuing it. I recently went to a chiropractor and had x-rays taken. There is significant compression and misalignment between C3 and C4. There is also some arthritic changes between these vertebrae. I used to break horses when I was in my early 20 s and at one point directly fell on my head and was knocked out. I assume that is what caused this particular injury. My question is could this injury be causing the arrhythmias, chest pain, breathing problems and hoarseness? I know you can t answer with certainty I am just curious if it is a possibility. Thank you for your time, Jennifer
