bradycardias palpitations

for past few weeks i am feeling some unpleasant palpiation (feels like something in my chest stops and comback again.. like flip-flop)so i went to see a doctor. they examined my blood pressure and done a ECG test while i was resting for couple of minutes. my blood pressure was absolutely normal and so is the ECG test (during that period i did not sense any papitations as well). However i am still getting those palpitations and i feeling like they are comming quite often now. i used to smoke but i have quit now. can someone please advise how shall i describe this to my Doctor and what test i must undertake in order to be on a safe side... and how dangrous could that papitation be? could something like palpitation happens due to gas or something else as well? please advise... thanks

Hi well come to HCM.
If you wish to be totally safe submit your self for Holters monitor where they monitor
your cardiac rhythm and rate for 24hrs to find any thing happening itermitantly.
Things like VPCS,APCS,SVT,etc can occur intermittantly. Thanks

Palpitations usually do not mean that you have a significant heart problem. Causes might be: - problems in the electric conduction of the heart - low blood sugar - excessive use of stimulants (coffee, cola, tea, cigarettes, antidepressants) - anxiety You have tell to your doctor: - when your palpitations occur and how long do they last - whether any other symptoms are present - do you use any stimulants or medications Check the links in the source.
