Constant palpitations

1973m

Hi, I’m having a lot of palpitations lately, it last for long periods and my chest has begun to ache , I’m also aware of a numbness sometimes in the area. I get that anxiety can cause lots of things but I’m actually not sure what I’m anxious about at the moment if that makes sense. Other than why does my heart keep jumping about . ( I haven’t been for any check ups for this in a few years) so could it be something more ?

HI 1973m, I get these palpitations and luckily I haven't gotten them in a while. Have you gotten a check up? An ecg or ekg? And secondly it's not just anxiety that causes palpitations. Many other things do as well. An allergy to cetrain foods for example. I learned that fatty foods specially late in the day mess me up and my number one trigger is caffeine, any kind of caffeine sets off my palpitations and increases my anxiety. If you cut these things out it might help. I always make sure that anything I drink or eat has no kind of caffeine and it has helped. Hope this helps.

I have them often and whenever i have them I’m thinking to myself that I’m not even stressed out or having anxiety about anything so I’m usually so confused as to why it’s happening but i went to the doctor and found out that I’m anemic which may have been causing the palpitations in addition to my anxiety. Go get a check up just to make sure everything is ok.

Palpitations with a fast heart rate can be a sign of atrial fibrillation. Please get yourself checked out.
