Yes, what do u take for it
If you feel heart palpitations, soreness in jaw and sweats after drinking, you'd check on your blood sugar level. If it's low blood sugar, just take some sugar or carbon. Do you have a blood sugar monitor? If your blood sugar is normal, then you need consider the possibility of angina, you'll need to get an EKG.
What does 'pvc' stand for?
I think it means Premature ventricular contraction
I was diagnosed with heart paptation.
One doctor said nothing to worry about. Test all show no damaged to heart.Meds were prescribe by one doctor.Other says no.So confused.
do you know which kind arrhythmia do you have?
 have you done 24h monitoring EKG?
if it's not dangerous and you don't have uncomfortable feelings , you don't need drugs.
if you don't feel good ,you can take drugs to relieve symptoms.
What kinds of arrhythmia are there?  Which ones are the dangerous ones?
My heart rate was 160 a minute. What does that mean?
A high heart rate can be due to many factors, such as physical activity, panic, stress, or anxiety. In order to accurately measure your heart rate, you will need to measure it while you are in a relaxed, resting state.
Although tachycardia is considered relatively harmless, it can decrease the efficiency of the heart by lowering the amount of blood pumped throughout your body. With less oxygenated blood circulating the body, the body receives less oxygen and the person may ultimately experience dizziness, lightheadedness, chest pain, or fainting.

Tachycardia can be caused by several factors:

Heart conditions – heart related conditions such as high blood pressure and poor blood supply to the heart muscle due to coronary artery disease, heart valve disease, heart failure, heart muscle disease, tumors or infections.
Health conditions – Overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) and emphysema and other lung diseases
Stimulants – drinking large amounts of alcoholic or caffeinated beverages, smoking cigarettes, and abuse of recreational drugs.
Other – abnormal electrical pathways caused by a genetic defect at birth, electrolyte imbalances in the body (too little potassium, calcium, sodium and other minerals), and side effects of heart medications
Contact your doctor about your heart rate to find the best treatment for your health.
I'm 58 years old , obese and I have heart palpitations..I can be just sitting and I will have them..I dont have them all the time , just maybe a few times per I need to go see a doctor about this.
yes , you should go to a cardiologist and have EKG test or 24 hour EKG mornitoring.
I have palpitations a lot. I  can stand up and feel fine. I  can walk 30 steps to my kitchen and I have to grab something to keep from falling.  I can go to bathroom and I can feel my heart beat through my back. I  have a blood pressure kit and  my blood pressure is ok and my heart beat is 60 to 155. It also shows that  it is  out of rythm
The occurrence and development of arrhythmias are affected by many factors. Malignant arrhythmia may endanger the patient's life in a short period of time. The acute phase of arrhythmia should first be determined according to the hemodynamic state. Hemodynamic state instability includes progressive hypotension, shock, acute heart failure, progressive ischemic chest pain, syncope, disturbance of consciousness, and the like. Use drugs to pay attention to safety, even if it does not work, do not aggravate the condition or complicate the condition. Do you have a structural heart disease? Arrhythmia has the characteristics of recurrent episodes, and measures to stop the episode may not be preventive. The management of underlying diseases and incentives is important. Inferior myocardial infarction with slow arrhythmia, with the opening of criminal blood vessels, arrhythmia can be alleviated; but if the underlying disease is not easy to resolve immediately, arrhythmia is frequent, it may be based on the underlying disease and incentive control. In the recent prevention, intravenous antiarrhythmic drugs are often used. How to use it depends on factors such as the nature of arrhythmia, whether it is combined with organic heart disease, and whether there is a hemodynamic disorder. See the related arrhythmia problem for details.
did you get this out of a book
wow that would be a really hard work if she got those word out of a book, and thanks for that
I have frequent heart palpatations , or skipped beats, more than usually have. No other symptoms, other than ansxity when this occurs.
Sounds like tachycardia, an EKG can confirm. There're treatments available, but diagnosis is the first step.
Get an EKG first. Something must be abnormal.
I have heart palpitations almost daily, different times of the day doing different things
Premature beat, if not too many times, isn't a big problem. My Dr. says so.
Sounds like premature beat,of course it's helpful to see a cardio.
If you see a cardiologist, he/she will ask you to wear a holter monitor for 24 hours, the device will record the EKG for the whole day, they'll find out what the problem is.
I have approximately 3500 a day...I've been seeing a cardiologist for 4 years and recently got a second opinion from a second cardiologist and they both say same thing. They're annoying but not harmful.
Too much thyroid hormone causes faster heart beat, too little causes slower heart beat.
Has anyone had heart palpatations, soreness in jaw and sweats from drinking a heavy on the alcohol drink?
Alcohol makes you in myocardial ischemia. Avoid alcohol, get your heart checked.
Low blood pressure after taking alcohol. Stop drinking.
I have heart palpitations every day sometimes all day and my right calf swells everyday. What could that be.
Hello, the swollen calf might be a blood clot, you'll need an ultrasound to confirm. Heart palpitation, you'd take an EKG first. Many diseases can cause palpitation, treatment is to the cause.
