Quivering in chest, heart racing. Often have palpitations. Suggestions?

Lat night I was awakened by a strong sensation of my hear quivering in my chest if my heart had the chills! This went on all night - and was very frightening. Sitting up or standing seemed to help, but lying down was impossible. My heart was also racing according to my husband who listened to it. I often have palpitations, have had them for twenty years, but this was different. Any suggestions?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

EKG / HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram / TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) / LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance.
You may even need Electro Physiological Studies (EPS)

Consult a Cardiologist
