Palpitations on movement

I have been experiencing palpitations when I move, and they are worse in the morning when my brain is still "adjusting" to being awake. I find that sometimes, when I lay in bed and change positions, my heart races. I've also experienced it while getting up from sitting down, my heart will race for a few seconds and then subside. It's quiet bizarre. It seems to be worse during times at stress, that is, when I'm worried about my health.

I've had an EKG, because I did have some chest pain that lasted a few seconds as well as a chest x-ray. Results were normal.

It also seems that my "fight or flight" is a bit overactive.

Anyone got any ideas?

Re: Palpitations on movement

I have the same, or similar, problem with body movements causing pvcs or erratic heart rythums such as lying down on my back or sides, bending over, sitting and leaning over. I too have had many tests over the years and the cardio tells me it is nothing to worry about. I wonder what he would say if he experienced these miserable happenings? I guess all we can do is to learn to live with them and hope and pray they disappear forever. Take care........

Re: Palpitations on movement

Thanks for you reply. It's nice to know we aren't alone. Perhaps it IS anxiety because I do find that it is not as bad when I'm not worried about it and get a lot of sleep.

Re: Palpitations on movement

In my case, after my last attack, I've had really strong palpitations and I stayed in bed for 2 weeks. Slowly, it lessened so I was able to get out of bed, get out and do walks for 10 min. I felt really crappy and visited my local clinic (again). This time the doc prescribed metoprolol 25 mg twice a day. I am taking half that and wow, it works. My heart rate which was often in the 92-97 range came down by 10.
It has been a hell of 7 months.
