Hormones can cause flutters, real common in pregnant women. Otherwise it could mitro valve prolapse. You just have to live with it or have surgery, but definitley see a heart doctor. They will let you know how severe.

Hi, I am 30 years old and have palpitations that leave me feeling tired and scared. They occur everyday and are really prominent when I eat and after. I have been checked by a heart dr and he just said that they are palpitations. But I feel like he missed something, is there anything I can do or take to help eliminate the palpitations?

I often have an irregular heartbeat during the course of the day (5 to 6 times). I can feel gas moving around in my system almost everytime this occurs. I often have rapid heartbeats which are relieved by passing . I was hospitalized before because I thought tI was having a heart attack but after thorough testing (ekg, ultrasound, stress test, wearing a heart monitor at home) they found nothing. What could be a possible avenue that I can pursue to finally get rid of this or at least be able to treat it.

I'm a 21 yr old female having constant heart palpitations. I know what they are and what they feel like some are stronger than others but I feel them all the time. I don't have insurance so I haven't seen a cardiologist. I don't smoke, drink anything with caffeine, and only drink alcohol occasionally. Some doctors have said possible mitral valve prolapse. I'm just wondering what could be causing so many palpitations and also I have had them since I was 18 they are just getting much worse I also have chest pain just about every day.

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.
