What causes heart palpitations?

My heart is pounding. Feels like it is going to pound out of my chest. Also my heart is skipping several beats. Nothing hurts but I feel like I am SOB and that I ran a marathon. What could be the problem? Also don t know if this has anything to do with this but I have had a cough for 2 weeks now

Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,

After going through your medical query I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that pounding heart with SOB requires evaluation before doing any exertion all activity.

It’s recommended for you to get a basic cardiac evaluation done which includes ECG, echocardiography and a HOLTER and CBC, TSH and X-Ray Chest and then consult with reports.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhanu Partap, Cardiologist
