What could warm sensations in heart suggest?

I have a weird sort of warm feeling in my heart, and it is beating pretty rapidly, but more so just very hard. I have recently used the herbal bath salt "Tranquility". Is this something I should worry about or will it pass once the drug is out of my system?

Hello,

Your symptoms seem to be related to anxiety. I would exclude any cardiac disorders related to this symptomatology. Anyway, if the problem persists, I would recommend consulting with your attending physician for a careful physical exam and some tests:
• A resting ECG
• A chest x-ray study
• Complete blood count
• PCR, ESR
Thyroid hormone levels
• Blood electrolytes

An ambulatory 24 to 48 hours ECG monitoring would help examine your heart rhythm for a prolonged time and exclude possible cardiac arrhythmia. If these tests result normal, you should consider anxiety as the main cause of your complaints.

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

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka
