heart palpitations with head pressure???

Hey everyone I hope someone here can give me some advise. I have an occasional what feels like my heart skipping a beat which I assume is a palpitation. I have had EKG and Holter about a year ago. It was fine. Anyway for the past three days I am having them consistant lasting for a few hours. BUT the thing is when I have one I feel pressure in my head at the same time. I have chronic headaches and depression so I'm sure the stress isn't helping. I did not have a headache yesterday and today before they started but after they lasted for a few minutes I got a headache. Does anyone have any idea the relation between the two? Also I understand that occasional palpitations are normal but what if they are constant like 3 or 4 back to back that last for a few hours? By the way I am 38yo and not overweight. Thanks everyone for your time. I welcome any thoughts on my issue.

Re: heart palpitations with head pressure???

hi im 18, and i know exactly what you mean, i get a palpitation and then pressure in my head, sometimes I feel flushed too, its stressing me out cause Ive read that palpitations without symptoms is better. I also have had svts that was joined by mono, and then orthostatic intolerance from the mono, all within 3 months...

Hey its been a while since I posted this but still have the same issues. I saw a heart doc and he put me on a med that regulates or slows the heart rate down and he hoped that it would help my headaches as well. I took it for a little while but it made me really tired so I didn't continue regular. I can definately see an increase when I am stressed.
