Why is it all of a sudden I just started having palpitations especially when I get up and move around and my pulse goes up. I’ve been to the ER 3 times two different ones and nothing they say my heart looks fine. Is it just stress and how do I fix it. I’m so scared to move or exercise because it makes them worse.

      @Sam042 Nope, that’s not true at all. Anyone at any age can develop POTS.

      I have asked them about POTS but they said I would have had it since I was young so idk

      Have you looked into POTS? It is a type of dysautonomia (dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system)

"Some people just get occasional palpitations and things like alcohol, caffeine, and other stimulants can make them more likely. However there obviously are a number of heart conditions that can cause them, but the most common ones are pretty much harmless to your physical health and more just uncomfortable. Palpitations with few other symptoms are probably not going to harm you. In the meantime something you can do to keep your heart nice n healthy is make sure you’re staying hydrated and keeping enough potassium in your diet."
