It’s kind of like being aware of your heart beating non-stop. Of course I know my heart is constantly beating and working to keep me alive, but I don’t want to be aware of it all the time. Heart palpitations are feelings of your heart. All this stress and anxiety can indirectly cause heart palpitations or the sensation of skipped beats or thumping. “I know of no direct reason computer work may cause palpitations,” says Glenn Meininger, MD, Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology Services for the Baltimore region of the MedStar Heart.

  • Palpitation is not very serious when your heart skips a beat between few beats. After discussing this with my doctor he told me this could be as result of low potassium or the Sid effect from my medication. I have added small dose of Potassium supplement it seems to work. My Palpitation happens when I am fully at rest and can hear my heart beat. It goes, 11110110110111011110, 0s are silence.

  • Mine happens so quickly, like he said a “light switch”, 2 or 3 beats and then gone. Sometimes it’s like a huge pause for a couple seconds and it’s difficult to breathe but then I’m fine. I believe it’s linked to my anxiety. this video is very informative, thank you.

  • Just above the jugular notch on my throat, for many years I have these split few seconds of this strange unsettling feeling, the only way I can describe it, is that it feels like a fluttering vacuum spasm that takes away my natural reflex to breath, and then it does a big pulse thud and goes back to normal. There’s no situation it only occurs in, it’s not brought on by any external circumstances like being frighted. Are these palpitations? If anyone can help, I’d appreciate it

  • I’m literally sitting and I’m getting them right now!!! For the past month I’ve been getting them non stop and I don’t have to be doing anything to get them!

  • I get these strange hard heartbeats like my heart was pushed in but come out agian knocking my breath out ushally theres like 3 to 4 of them in rapid succession then im ok for awhile ushally happens at night

  • Reading everyone’s comments here makes me feel better cause I ain’t the only one who’s having these same problems… �� I hope everyone gets through this!!

  • There may be some clues for me, someone help! I don’t know if I should consider this palpitations but.. I’m 12. So. I went shopping with my Dad earlier and bought some stuff, including iced coffee. After coming home, later at night I suffered diarrhoea. I got really stressed and thought (What if it’s the stomach flu? I don’t wanna vomit!) And was stressed on the sofa, but calmed down later. When going to bed, that’s when these “palpitations” start. So, I can feel my heart beating, and about every 5 seconds there’s this slightly larger one that makes it feel as if small bits of air go to my lower throat
    It’s uncomfortable so I couldn’t sleep, plus now I’m stressed. Started at 1 AM. 2 AM I took a walk around the house and came back to bed, calmed down for about 3 mins them came back but a little weaker. Here at 3 AM, can’t sleep. Help!
    EDIT: These palpitations thingies used to only happen when I ran a lot and it would come for 1 min then leave

  • I think it may be anxiety for my the pain sometimes switches from left to right… Please answer I wanna know why I have slight discomfort. It’s not like super severe pain it’s just like an ache I don’t know how to discribe it.

  • I hope this helps people: I’m healthy, happy, no anxiety, all tests come through clear. Still get palps several times a day especially when I lie on my left side. It feels like random thumps in my chest and when I take my pulse it feels like I skip a beat. **Acupressure in my forearm takes it away almost immediately** try it! There are lots of videos on YouTube!….but I still feel them come on about 5 timed a day. I will try to quit my morning cup of coffee and up my iron and magnesium and see what happens……………… I want to mention that I know what anxiety is. Battled it several times throughout my life when I was young her. I’ve had control over it for years now. I never had palps when I had anxiety and yet I get them now when I’m happy and chill with no stress… so it’s extremely frustrating when doctors just pass it off as anxiety when they don’t have a real answer.

  • i experience my heart beating so fast right now, i dont know the cause im not sure if it is because i drink too much coffee but because of this i can’t sleep until now. i’ve been awake for over 24 hours now and my worries grow

  • Coffee is a diuretic it causes the kidneys to filter the blood faster and this will eliminate some electrolytes from your body. Low electrolytes will cause heart palpitations and probably other health problems. Salt, magnesium, potassium, chloride, calcium, magnesium and phosphates are some of the electrolytes our bodies need daily.

  • I wanted to quit nicotine gum so I replaced it with sugar free gum, I began to have crazy heart palpitations, I stopped the gum and in about 4 days the palpitations were completely gone,.”” Aspartame “” if any of you are consuming anything with aspartame in it stop and see if they go away!!! The doctor will tell you they’re from anxiety or they harmless or completely normal they never ask you what your putting in your body,. After many visits to the doctor I figured it out for my self!!! I was chewing ridiculous amounts of gum to satisfy the oral fixation of not smoking thats how I knew to check the label!!

  • I was lying in my bed watching youtube videos and then boom, My heart fluttered. I could feel it in my chest and the lower part of my neck. It went on for less than a second or two. Then instantly stopped. It’s the first time it has ever happened.

  • 1tbsp Avocado oil, 1/8 tsp olive oil, and 1/8 apple cider vinegar mixed. Once in the morning on empty stomach and once before bed. took this for 1 month and after 6yrs of palpitations i feel i am nearly 100% back to normal. Discovered it trying to lower my cholesterol which when I found out I had from a health screening at my job. I thought it might have something to do with the palpitations. Never went to a doctor for it…I know kinda crazy but I believe if I cant heal myself the doctors can’t either.

  • Can that lady who was suffering from palpitations please reply to me if she is still thereIm so afraid my life is ruined… please if youre there. Reply.. ��

  • I have been taking vitamin e capsule for years for body buildig purpose and it affects my heart suddenly and starts to have chest pain and palipation for a month I am so depressed and worried so I decided to cure it and went for jog but it doesn’t work so my final hopes was on food…so I had four garlic per day with hot water and peform 50 squats a it’s recovering to normal..garlic is best medicine and don’t stress out or have unnecessary medication stay safe and blessed ��

  • It bothers me a lot. I thought it was my mood swing at first but It happened when I didn’t have period too. It makes me feel weak and I cry without reason. It sounds stupid but I do not drink coffee nor alcohol nothing.. not too muchh weight too

  • Thank you very much.
    I experienxed heart palpatations a few years ago (for a few months). I saw a doctor and a cardiologist, did test after test; neither the doctor nor the cardiologist had any explanation for why I was experienceing the heart palpitations. I had to pay the specialist fee rate also for getting no explanation.

  • Okay so I have thears my heart feels like it skips beats my dr sed they can’t do nothing for it so happy I’ve seen this I has all palpitations from being 9-11 then they stopped and now they have started agen

  • I’m 20 yrs old and I’m trying to sleep but it feels like I’m having a panic or something, then after that I feel light headed when I stand up idk what to do I need some help.

  • How long do they last because I went to the doctor and they said I would be fine and it’s the next day but I still have it,but to a lesser degree. Sometimes it gets me harder than other times.

  • Lovely Video clip! Sorry for butting in, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you heard about Ganadelyn Astounding Guide (search on google)? It is a good one off guide for getting rid of heart disease without the normal expense. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my m8 at very last got cool success with it.

  • I’ve had heart palpitations in my sleep for years. No amount of medicine works to prevent it. Sleep apnea is not the cause and my doctor determined that it was caused by nocturnal seizures. I have had some fainting experiences while awake but these occur when in bed at sleep. Thus, there is no way to prevent it. It’s a miracle I’m still alive after all these decades.
    The only way I have of treating them once they start is to do yoga breathing exercises. At times, I do mudras (yoga hand exercises). Again, at times they work, often they don’t. Life is cruel god hates me. So I keep trying.
