Anyone else get heart palpatations?

Mine started like 5 years ago and that started my health anxiety. They still bother me when i get them. Not sure why but they do.

    hi

    i get these all the time now.  they stopped for about 8 months and i thought great   this part is over.  January this year them came back, worse than ever, and like you  they cause me so much anxiety  I can't ignore them anymore and sure enough went to the doctor and I had a UTI.  The palps are so bothersome but I keep trying calm myself saying it's hormones.  But sometimes you just have to get it checked and now this UTI. I don't know if I'm coming or going these days, i wish it would stop.

    Yes.  It would pound like crazy for no reason.  I wasn't even anxious, but they make you anxious!  I was seeing a Dr who put me on anxiety meds and it would still pound like crazy.  He had no idea why, and neither did my naturopath after I quit the meds.  It was the hormones!  It has stopped since I started taking bio-identical estrogen.

    yes, they are horrible.  Take xanax.  It works and I think it does more than just calm you down.

    You don't happen to have hypothyroidism (under active thyroid) do you? 

    Whenever I am taking even just slightly too much thyroxine I get palpitations and don't like it at all.

    No I don't take anything for thyroid.  But I also have not had it checked.  I plan to get a complete profile and of hormones soon.  I take an over the counter progesterone cream.  But the nurse practitioner told me that couldn't possibly be of any benefit.  But I think there is benefit.

    I had palpitations really bad for awhile.  I couldn’t sleep, and they’d go on all day long.  I don’t know if it was the nightly progesterone cream that finally stopped them or the potassium I was getting from a huge daily salad I was eating.  I haven’t had them for awhile now.  They were so annoying!
