Customer Question
I have factor v...

I have factor v leiden and I had a pulmonary embolism back in December 2011. I haven’t had any health problem since and have stopped taking blood thinners. Now I’m having palpitations. What should I do?

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

Great. I excercise vigorously on a daily basis. I haven’t felt these neck flutterings until the past week and a half

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I take ssri medications

how old are you?

are you male or female?

do you have bad anxiety symptoms?

bad anxiety can cause heart palpitations.

medications like propranolol can help calm down your heart from anxiety and help prevent palpitations from anxiety.

have you had your thyroid hormone levels checked? high thyroid hormone levels can cause palpitations.

It feels fast
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
But isn’t fluttering in my neck
Cardiologist: Dr. David, Doctor replied 7 months ago

you can get a home blood pressure cuff which can monitor your blood pressure and heart rate

how your heart feels is not the best way to know if you hare having heart palpitations or not.

giving your history of depressive disorder and episodic anxiety disorder, these heart symptoms are most likely due to excessive anxiety symptoms.

and not a bad heart arrhythmia.
