Palpitations

The normal heart rhythm is generally regular and is known as sinus rhythm. There is natural variation of this sinus rhythm with exercise and anxiety. Palpitations are a sensation of the heart beating. This is a very common sensation and is most cases does not mean there is anything abnormal with heart function. Ectopic beats or ‘extra beats’ are common. They may be felt as a double beat, a missed beat or as a subsequent forceful beat. Ectopic beats are common, usually harmless and do not
require treatment. A common but more important cause of palpitations is Atrial Fibrillation.
