Palpitations from stress are common - almost a natural part of modern living. There ARE, however, some things you can do to help yourself. Firstly, have your cardiac physiology and pathology checked out to see that your symptoms aren't something more sinister (like hypertension). Then, get some counselling and support to improve your ability to survive stress without beating your body into a pulp. A homeopath can then reinforce your whole constitution to stabilize your heart action and reduce the tendencies you have to over-react. I see an ad on this page for herbs that beat anxiety - and YES: herbs work remarkably well. Motherwort and Lime Blossom soothe heart palpitations (and YOU) beautifully.
YES.. ITS BEEN HAPPENING TO ME REGULARLY FOR 17 YEARS IM 47 NOW..EVERY TIME ITS SCARY AND ANNOYING .I DID HOW EVER HAVE A THREE YEAR BREAK ,BUT UNFORTUNATLY THEY RETURNED WITH A VENGENCE, I DID THE HEART WORK UP, BP MONITOR, EKG,HEART MONITOR ,AND ECHO JUST FOR REASSURANCE. WHEN I HAVE MY EPOSODES I CAN ALWAYS ASSOCIATE THEM WITH STRESS, AND CERTAIN TIMES OF THE MONTH IN A WOMEN'S CYCLE.. BUT SOMETIMES THEY CAN GET OUT OF HAND IN WHICH CASE BETA BLOCKERS AND ANTIANXIETY MEDICATION CAN BE VERY HELPFUL. ITS ALSO GOOD TO CHECK YOUR THYROID..BUT IVE BEEN TOLD MINE ARE HARMLESS ...BUT EXTREMELY ANNOYING
