      I get them all the time I went to cardiologist had ekg and echogram done and wore a heart monitor for 24 hrs all was normal.. dr said nothing yo worry about, could be stress or caffeine hormones named a few other things but u was told all harmless. Try to cough hard when you get them it puts your heart back into a normal rhythm, stay calm if you had it checked and know it's normal just try not to stress, still worrisome and they are annoying! Good luck

      I've had the CBC with differential many times. Not sure if that includes a potassium test. But, I had not had any of these problems until after I gave birth. I went to Florida last year for a week and while I didn't have any episodes, I did not feel like my normal self at times. Just like weirdness in my head. It was around 80° or so. I really haven't had too much of a problem in Michigan summers.

      Rocksand- That sounds similar to what I'm going thru! But heat is my biggest trigger to the point I can barely function when I'm warm. My aunt had a high heartrate that was caused from low potassium when she was pregnant. Have they checked your potassium with a comprehensive metabolic panel?

      I had everything looked at when I had my heart palpitations. EKG, echocardiogram, stress test and wore a monitor. They said my heart was excellent! After Covid I had them. It could be autoimmune response causing it. When I went on an AIP diet and quit coffee I noticed a difference but also I think time helped. I also utilize meditation and listen to frequencies for Vagus Nerve on YouTube... greatly helps

        @Joy25 hi, I've had all the tests as well. My episodes come randomly, but I feel like they mostly come around the time of my period. I get them less now thankfully. My heart rate will skyrocket 30-40 points for no reason. This can last 2 minutes to 20+ mins. I used to be able to feel palpitations, but now I no longer feel my heart beats. When it first started after the birth of my baby i would get a huge rush of lightheaded ness ( like the oxygen was cut off to my brain for 2 seconds) then my heart rate would jump up to 115 fun like 65bpm. I had one in December that went up to 140bpm. Really scared me that time. They used to be a few times a month now I get 1 a month or less. My very first episode was me having a cup of coffee, looking outside and a bright light shinned my eye the wrong way, and my eyes started starring over to the point where all I could see is blotches. I was right on the cusp of passing out, but thankfully I did not. I felt like I was going to die. It was very scary. And ever since the following summer after that, I've been having these rapid heart rate episodes. No one can figure it out, and I feel like maybe it is an autoimmune disease caused by having a baby, or endocrine disorder, I thought maybe it was from low iron just recently, but I had another episode last weekend and I've been taking iron for almost 2 months. I'm doing a DNA 100% gnome test to look for rare disease. It should be done in a few weeks.

      Heart palpitations aren't always serious if you don't have other symptoms along with them. They can be caused from heat, stress, caffeine, alcohol etc. But if you kno that's not the reason then maybe ask about doing a holter heart monitor. But I kno just how you feel having a doctor be dismissive and not taking you seriously, it sucks!
