What are palpitations?

KDAH

Palpitations can stem from various sources, spanning from short-term stress to different types of arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats). While they may feel alarming, they don't always signify a severe heart condition. Palpitations entail a general or heightened awareness of your heartbeat—whether it’s too fast, too slow, or irregular. Triggers may include stress, exercise, medication, or, rarely, an underlying medical issue. If you experience palpitations alongside chest pain, shortness of breath, fainting, dizziness, or unexplained fatigue, it's advisable to consult a doctor for further evaluation. #Palpitations #HeartHealth
