I am a 20 yearl old girl, and sometomes i have these heart plapitations.? Feels like my heart is beating too hard. What is the cause? Could i have some disease? What exactly are heart plapitations?
i mean to say palpitations.
Depends how many episodes you have in a day. if it is frequent than it's a matter of concern.
Avoid risk factors, smoking, overweight do physical, eat a fat and decrease salt diet etc.
As the causes are too many and you will have to consult your doctor.
Palpitation means to become aware of one heart beating, normally at your age it must be over 100 beats /minute (but don't take it as a parameter). EKG is the best way to diagnose palpitation, echocardiogram etc.
During menstrual cycle it is common in females.
But I think it's normal at your age.

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.
