Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Palpitations or also called palpitations can be caused by many possible causes, including:
Post heavy physical activity (such as sports or long walks)
Consumption of caffeine, alcohol, or certain illegal drugs
Side effects of certain medical drugs (such as cold medicines, asthma medications, heart medications, etc.)
Excessive stress, anxiety, panic disorder
Angry, sad, too happy, or other high emotional turmoil
Health problems such as heart rhythm disorders, hyperthyroidism, anemia, dehydration, low blood sugar, and so forth
Hormonal changes such as menstruation, menopause, or pregnancy
If indeed this condition often occurs and is very disturbing to you, you should do a check up with a cardiologist first to make sure there are no specific problems with your heart. If it is confirmed that there are no heart problems, you can be referred to a doctor for internal medicine to look for other possible diseases that can cause your palpitations (such as anemia, thyroid hormone disorders, or other health problems). If you feel pain in the chest such as pressure from heavy objects accompanying your palpitations, or you feel shortness of breath, you experience dizziness and loss of consciousness or faint, immediately go to the hospital.
For now, some things you can do include:
reduce consumption of coffee or other caffeinated drinks
avoid alcohol and illegal drugs
if you take certain medications from your doctor, consult the use of these drugs again with the doctor who prescribed the drug
do relaxation exercises such as deep breathing exercises, yoga, or meditation
get enough sleep and rest (sleep at least 7-9 hours a day)
drink enough water every day (2-3 liters a day)
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
