Sorry to hear this

If the palpitations are continuous then she will need an EKG at least to rule out any arrhythmia

Palpitations can occur with anxiety as well but an EKG is the minimum investigation she require

Please do let me know if you have any more question

Please leave a positive rating as we can continue even after that rating

Hi Dr. her EKG is normal but the palpitation happens only after she has diarrhea for a day or a flare after trouble in her stomach can these be related?

In that case she needs to have her electrolytes and thyroid hormones checked

If both are normal then it can be related to anxiety

Usually if an arrythmia is strongly suspected and EKG is normal a 24 HOUR Holter monitoring is required

Please do let me know if you have any more question

Please leave a positive rating as we can continue even after that rating

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
