Question: Heart Palpitations ALL the time
|endora - Wed Aug 24, 2005 5:04 pm||
I am a 28 year old female who has started experiencing heart pals nearly everyday it seems. For me they are like a missed beat, but actually an extra beat. They are worse on my period and sometimes go away for weeks. I suspect it is stress related too. I saw the dr. and they say that it is coming from the atria and they are normal. However, my question is: b/c they are so frequent should I worry? They sometimes happen for hours and I believe are about 6 per minute at times at least.
If this is a condition that is truly not to worry over then please let me know and I will stop obsessing over it. It is so hard to go through when it is your own health, mind and body.

Palpitations are not harmful, as your doctor probably informed you, but they can be very bothersome. Call your doctor about the frequency, there is medication to control these.
