Hello Early ...
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ...
A heart that is beating faster or beats faster and irregularly in medical language is also called palpitations. In some conditions, people who experience these complaints do not cause danger, but if accompanied by other complaints such as chest pain that is felt to spread, tightness. It might be a sign that there is a problem in one of your organs. Some causes of palpitations are:
- Psychic: psychological factors such as panic, anxiety about something, stress or anxiety can cause heart palpitations to beat faster, and usually arise when a person is in a state of many minds.
Lifestyle - this is the most common cause of palpitations. When you shop or lack of sleep, or activities are dense can cause palpitations.
- Food and drinks: consumption of spicy foods and drinks containing caffeine such as coffee, and drinking alcohol can also cause heart palpitations to be faster
- Medications: certain medications such as asthma medications, high blood pressure medications, antihistamines, antibiotics, anti-depressants and anti-fungi can also cause heart palpitations
- Heart disorders: heart rhythm disorders such as tachycardia, ventriculerm atrial fibrillation to heart valve disease, and heart failure can cause these complaints.
Other complaints such as dehydration, fever above 38 degrees Celsius, anemia or low blood sugar can also be a cause of palpitations. Some things you can do at home to reduce fast heart palpitations are: adequate rest, avoid excessive activity, avoid stress or think of anything excessive, sufficient drinking water needs are 2L per day and eat nutritious foods, avoid also drinks containing caffeine such as coffee, no smoking and drinking alcoholic beverages.
If the complaint does not seem to improve, even though it has implemented the above, and is accompanied by chest pain and shortness of breath. get to the doctor immediately. The doctor will do anamnesa, physical examination and if needed the doctor will do a heart record or ECG to determine whether there is interference with the heart rhythm of your heart, chest X-rays and heart ultrasound.
In situations where the corona virus is spreading rapidly, if not accompanied by needs and urgency you should stay at home, or take care of yourself so that you are not exposed to the virus, if there are complaints such as sore throat that gets worse for more than 2 weeks, accompanied by fever more than 38 degrees Celsius, coughs, colds that do not heal until there is a feeling of tightness or difficulty breathing, even though you have tried to take medication, then you should check yourself to the doctor, for further examination.
Thus my answer, hopefully it helps
