I have not actually taken any meds yet..i was prescribed some anti depressant but was scared to take it because I was told some instead worsens th depression

did you have any test for the palpitations?

I can tell you that there is a high chance they are benign

I haven't been prescribed drugs for the TMD yet...last year I did a scan that revealed I had cerebral atherosclerosis and took drugs for it

did you see my question above?

Don't actually know if I am cured of it yet..i was told by the doctor me being obesed is a risk now i try as much as possible to stay active and exercise..its really been hard for me to loose weight.i lose And gain most of the times

I dont think that answers my question

Sorry I didn't see that..the doctor concluded that palpitations are the result of my anxiety disorder..

Ok. but did you have an EKG or holter?

The palpitions stopped for a while but returned again...and for about 3 weeks I keep having them..and I noticed of recent that sugary stuff either provoked or increased the palpitations

I also noticed of last week a discharge from my left nipple( creamwhite, not upto a drop) other symptoms apart from slight pains in my left breast

Sorry if I am writing too is because I have alot of things going on with my body that I don't know if they are connected or I don't know which to leave out...trying to give as much info as I can
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I tremble most times while having these palpitations and some times feel hot flashes in my upper abdomen...Relatively swollen left leg around the ankle

I would get a holter monitor

it is a 24 hour wearable EKG
