Suffered severe case of bronchitis about 2 months ago. Started with what I thought was a heart attack, turned out that my fever was so high that my heart was beating overtime to cool my body, even though I thought I felt ok. Now 2 months later, my heart is still palpitating, everyday. No matter what I am doing, it will just jump, flutter or move it feels that way anyway. I also have a little trouble getting a deep cleansing breathe, no gasps or shortness you know just one of those deep one's that feel good. My doctor has done ekg's etc and everything just beats along normally never while I am sitting in the doctor's office, someone said they were panic or anxiety attacks? Who know's. Does anyone have any thoughts? Humidity doesnt help either.
Palpitating in the south

I am sorry to hear of your medical problems. Please be wary of any medical advice given over the internet. Consider a second opinion with a board certified Cardiologist. I will keep you in my t's and p's. Kind regards.

aliO7.....you could try Magnesium as it helps in regulating the heart rate and palpitations. Magnesium Citrate is very good for absorption but start slowly as it can cause stomach distress until the body gets used to it......

I dont know, I agree with seeing a Cardiologist because I have both had chest pains/Palpitations as well as Panic attacks.

The Panic Attacks gave me a feeling of fight or flight...does that happen to you? For me usually flight, but thats no matter.

When was the last time you were seen by your healthcare provider? So many things can cause this sensation - do see your HCP! Oh, and cut off the coffee, tea, Mountain Dew, Mello Yello or caffienated drinks and () chocolate.
