    Multiple Heart Palpitations.

    Guys I hope someone can give me some advice QUICK!

    I was just playing on my games console when I started to get palpitations. I get them from time to time but I've never had them quite like this.

    I felt my heart flutter but not just the once, but about 8 times and it felt like my heart was going crazy...they stopped but a few minutes after they started again and I got another 8 palpitations. Now I can feel another set coming on I think

    It certainly doesn't feel normal...and now I'm panicking because I don't know what to do. Should I go to the hospital? Or is it nothing to worry about?

    I'm only 25. HEEEELP!

    Re: Multiple Heart Palpitations.

    Thanks coastgirl.

    I get them when I'm anxious but it's only just a "thump" that I feel and it's only just the one. Whereas tonight...they were more like "thump, bump, wollop, bang" and it happened about 3 times. It totally freaked me out! I've been very stressed since yesterday though...I have a feeling this is what brought it on but I needed some reassurance.

    I'm trying not to worry but I can't get the thought that my heart is malfunctioning out of my head which is making it worse!

    Thank you anyway

    You will be fine. VERY SCARY ESP THE FIRST TIME.
    I have SVT for a year and now I seem not to think about it.
    Exercise helps.
    Anxiety can bring it on.
    see a dr and get some kind of meds to control your healthy heart.
    My heart is strong and healthy just goes WHACKO!!! when it wants to. LOL
    It is under control with Metoprolol 25MG. I get tired more but ... I can deal with that.
    Take Care...

    The thump is your heart trying to correct the rhythm. Are you drinking coffee, tea or colas? Caffeine will cause the erratic beating too. I would definitely get it checked out as it begins in the early twenties or as a teen. Ask the doctor for an ekg and a 48 hour holter.

    By the way, you can also get this from being low in potassium, calcium and magnesium.

    Re: Multiple Heart Palpitations.

    I have this, too. I was dx with Premature Atrial contractions (PACs). They are very worrisome to me as well but the cardiologist assured me that they are completely benign. Mine feel like you mentioned as well - like my heart flip-flops or flutters in my chest and then my heart does a really strong beat. My heart doesn't ever really race, just the flutters and bangs. Last night it was really bad and kept me up. I still worry about it. I am 36 now and all of this started for me in my mid-20s as well.

    I would suggest you go see a cardiologist. They'll do an exam and probably put you on a monitor for a few days/weeks. This will allow them to record and view your heart rhythms. They can tell what is going on by viewing them. As far as taking drugs to regulate it, my doc gave me the option but told me that the side effects probably outweighed the benefits at this point. So I opted out. If they get really bothersome in the future, I will probably opt for the meds but for now I am trying to push through it and live a healthy life.
