Heart Palpitations At Intervals Not Fixed
Good afternoon doc, I am a 22-year-old woman working daily as an employee – + can be up to 9 hours per day. Finally lately I often experience heart palpitations without a definite interval and if that happens at night, it will end up being unable to sleep. . In addition, I also like to suddenly take a deep breath and fit to exhale rather hard.
Hello Lifani, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Heart complaints beat faster with inappropriate intervals can refer to heart rhythm disorders, known as arrhythmias. Arrhythmia itself can occur due to various possible causes including:
Congenital heart disease
Heart valve disorders
Fatigue / lack of rest
Side effects of certain drugs such as cold medications
To find out the cause of the complaint, of course, a thorough examination must be carried out starting from a complete physical examination and additional checks needed such as blood tests, heart rhythm record (ECG), chest X-ray, echocardiography, and others. That way the handling will be more precise and directed.
For now things you can do are:
Eat healthy and nutritious foods, avoid high saturated fat content
Drink enough water
Rest enough 7-8 hours a day
Avoid cigarettes and alcohol
Manage stress well
Avoid using drugs carelessly without a doctor's prescription
Immediately to the doctor to check your condition. If there is chest pain, or faint immediately to the nearest emergency room to get further examination and treatment.
That is all and thank you.
