Customer Question

I've had heart palpitations for four days. Should I be concerned?
JA: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?
Customer: They do. I have been drinking a lot lately and is that a withdrawal symptom?
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I smoke and I'm overweight. My blood pressure is always pretty good though

Yes palpitations can be due to excessive drinking as well as due to withdrawal. Since you have them for four days i would recommend you to see your doctor and get an EKG to rule out anything serious and to be on safe side. Monitor your blood [pressure as well.

Hope this helps.
