The Heart Beats Weak And Sometimes Palpitations?
I want to ask the doctor
Hello, good afternoon..
When we do heavy work, including climbing the heart hill, the heart will pump stronger to meet the body's oxygen needs. That's what makes your chest feel pounding and breathing becomes faster. This is a very reasonable condition. While the heart beat is weak and sometimes palpitating can be caused by: anemia (lack of red blood cells), low blood pressure (hypotension), psychological factors such as stress, anxiety, etc. In addition, abnormalities in the heart can also cause similar complaints. If the diagnosis is known, then treatment can be done. And if the handling is right and fast (not too late) then the possibility of improving the condition will be even greater.
We recommend that you see a doctor (more specifically a doctor of internal medicine or cardiologist) if complaints often arise and bother you. The doctor will conduct questions and answers about complaints, conduct a physical examination, and if needed the doctor will suggest additional examinations such as blood lab tests, heart records, chest X-rays, and so on.
Meanwhile, here are some suggestions from us that you can take to help reduce complaints:
consumption of foods high in iron such as red meat, broccoli, spinach, and nuts
avoid consuming excessive caffeinated beverages (such as coffee and tea)
do regular exercise
do not smoke
do not consume alcoholic beverages
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
