I have been having heart palpitations for the last 5 days.

Resolved Question:

I have been having heart palpitations for the last 5 days. They last pretty much all day. No crushing chest pain, BP 130/80 pulse 61. It is getting pretty annoying. LMP:03-09-2012. 65 inches tall, 180 lbs. the heart palps started right after ovulation. Could there be a correlation? I thought it was the Clairtin I took the other day, but that should be out of my system .

Claritin take as needed, headache slight, drowsy yes. Shortness of breath, slight. Swelling in face...maybe? History of heart murmer possible MVP.

These symptoms can occur with heart disease like Angina, or abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia). You need to undergo EKG and blood work done. You need immediate medical care. I suggest that you should not delay and rush to ER ASAP for management of this issue.
Good luck and take care.
