Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. You should know that some palpitations are quite normal in every healthy individual, especially during physical activity and anxiety. Anyway, as you are feeling them more frequently lately, I would recommend consulting with your attending physician and performing some tests like a resting ECG, complete blood count for anemia, blood electrolytes for possible imbalance, thyroid hormone levels, an ambulatory 24 to 48 hours, ECG monitoring in order to examine your heart rhythm trends for a prolonged time and investigate for possible arrhythmia. You should discuss with your doctor on the above tests.


The Probable causes:

Anxiety or cardiac arrhythmia.

Investigations to be done:

Holter monitoring, blood electrolytes, thyroid hormones level.

Thank you doctor,

Did you review the images I had attached? I can totally feel when my heartbeat is irregular and kind of sluggish. Recently had blood work and ECG and all was fine.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I reviewed your uploaded files (attachment removed to protect patient identity). They look normal regular rhythm. But they are short recordings and it is difficult to predict the entire day-night period in case a possible arrhythmia happens. More professional devices are serving such purpose being able to register the heart rhythm for prolonged periods of time. Those laboratory tests should be done as they may reveal potential factors of your complaints.
