: I am 31 and consider myself fairly healthy although I do smoke approx 10-15 cigarrettes a day. Every night when I try to sleep I get heart palpatations that can sometimes make me jump right out of bed. I find that lying in an upright position sometimes helps. This can go on for a couple of hours before I eventually fall asleep. I work in a very stressful job but this problem feels so physical, could it be stress. The only time this does not occur is when I have been drinking alchohol. Has anybody expierience this or got any advice. Thanks for listening.
Shaun,
The number one cause of palpitations (PAC's & PVC's) is stress, followed by alcohol, caffeine and tobacco.
Since you have a stressfull job and drink alcohol, I can see why you experience palpitaitons. The reason they
occur when you are in bed is two-fold: (1) your heart is beating slower - this increases the chance of a premature
and (2) lying on your back also makes palpitations worst. So my suggustion to you is cut back on alcohol consumption and
find a less stressful job or take up meditation to eliminate stress from your life!
