Palpitations

Palpitations are the sensation of feeling your heart beating in an irregular or forceful manner. They can feel like your heart is skipping a beat, fluttering, or beating too fast. Palpitations can be a symptom of a serious condition, but they can also be caused by less serious factors.


Some common causes of palpitations include anxiety, stress, and overactive thyroid. These conditions can cause your heart to beat faster than normal, which can lead to palpitations. In addition, certain medications, such as decongestants, can also cause palpitations.


Other possible causes of palpitations include atrial fibrillation, which is an irregular heart rhythm, and heart disease. In these cases, the palpitations may be a sign of a more serious condition and should be evaluated by a doctor.


If you are experiencing palpitations, it is important to see your doctor for an evaluation. Your doctor may order an electrocardiogram (ECG) to check for any abnormal heart rhythms. They may also order blood tests to check for thyroid problems or other underlying medical conditions.


Treatment for palpitations depends on the underlying cause. If the cause is an overactive thyroid, your doctor may prescribe medication to control the thyroid hormone levels. If the cause is an irregular heart rhythm, your doctor may prescribe medication or recommend a procedure to correct the rhythm.


To reduce your risk of developing palpitations, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and managing stress can help to reduce the risk of developing conditions that can cause palpitations. If you are experiencing palpitations, it is important to see your doctor for an evaluation and appropriate treatment.
