Re: Heart Palpitations
Your post sounds exactly like the problem I've been having lately. When I'm distracted (walking, having a conversation, playing with my kids, etc.) I don't notice them. When I'm sitting down and still (mostly going to bed at night) I feel like my heart is going to leap out of my chest. For me, it's a few regular beats, then it seems to skip a beat, and then THUMP. So hard that I feel it in my throat. It's really an annoying feeling. They hooked me up to a holter monitor for 24 hours (still awaiting the results to that), but an in office EKG showed nothing. They are also sending me for an echocardiogram to take a look. I am new to Zoloft (been taking it for a week) and now suddenly the palps have stopped. I also cut out caffeine (well, I am weaning myself off right now, but I have cut back A LOT!). I was having a few yesterday, but last week it was 3 or 4 every minute!!!!
You definitely need to go talk to your doc and have them run some heart tests for you. Actually, looks like you saw your doc? Any update? Are you still having them?
