Hi Hollieedridge,

This is the best explanation I have found to discuss whether it is heart palpatations or something else. There is even a newsletter you can sign up to.

Every day i woke up i feel my heart pounding so hard it will last a long time that will not let me go back to sleep. Sometimes i woke up at 4 am with palpitations and cannot go back to sleep.

I had heart palpitations for a week and they kept coming and going all day every day and most of the time they lasted for a few minutes. I was so scared.

I get that too sometimes u experience the palpitations (which can be stressed related) and after u get it then become panicky which can cause the dizziness..I play a lot of sports and mid game I would feel it which scared me more and I would get weak legs but I've had every test and my doc assured me I was fine ..I saw a therapist and I've actually been doing better and playing sports again..don't let it eat you up listen to your doctors and watch Claire weekes videos on YouTube hope that helps

Thanks. I get them normally but just have the odd one or two or they stay all day but arnt constant. This was constant palpitations for 30 seconds maybe without a notmal heartbeat. Surely thats not normal
