    I started to suffer from what I thought were palpitations this year and was sent to A & E one evening this spring and was admitted due to abnormal rythmn. Later echo revealed I now have a cardiac arrhythmia . Part of this whole thing ? Don't know but it is unpleasant. I have a beta blocker which I take when it goes on for a few days and particularly unpleasant . Don't like taking them all of the time as I feel I have quite enough medication to take.
    My advice is that if you are concerned go to your GP , it will allay your fears at least .

    i too occasionally feel this, not too much though probably as I already take beta blocker for migraine and tremor. Not pleasant,I know.
