Things that cause my palps are: anxiety, an empty stomach (find I get more palps early in the morning before I've eaten. also...if I haven't eaten in 3 hours - I'll get them), sometimes bending over causes an attack.
Here's one that may not be too common--bloating from gas in my lower ribcage...I have irritable bowel syndrome, and when it's really acting up, I get mucho PAC's which often lead to at least one SVT episode during the bad spell.
I'll also get them while resting after an overly-strenous physical endurance activity, such as hardcore biking or jogging.
1. Too much caffeine, not enough water
2. Alcohol(After a few they go away)
4. Sometimes when I'm hungry.
5. After hot shower / hot tub.
Does anyone know (or know of a book / website) the physical scientific explaination why these would cause palpatations? My doctor told me that I had a heart murmur, but I am an engineer and would like to know why my heart reacts the way it does.
I haven't had palpitations for about 1 month... the only thing I do differently is drink alot of water... I mean I drink so much plain drinking water that I have to use the restroom about 10 times or more within 8 hours. I haven't had one palpitation while on my water spree... I have more energy and have become somewhat more active.
GOOD NEWS!! I GAVE UP COFFEE AFTER 35 YEARS OF FOUR CUPPING IT AND MY PALPS WENT AWAY WITHIN TWO DAYS. I SLEEP GREAT AND I FEEL MUCH BETTER. I RECOMMEND ANYONE WHO HAS PALPATAIONS TO TRY GIVING UP COFFEE AND ALL OTHER CAFIEEN.
I've been trying to figure out mine for a couple of years now. Its weird but its mostly after I eat a frozen pizza or bagel bites or something.I'm starting to think its either the preservatives or something about the tomato sauce..
Other things would be smoking and alcohol but its always at least in combination with eating.
