I am a 23 year old male and have been having heart

This answer was rated:

I am a 23 year old male and have been having heart palpitation for about 2 weeks. Coming and going. No chest pain or anything like that. Sometimes increased burping. I have been to doctors and have had ecg done and been told it's normal and have had blood taken and been told its normal. Just not sure where to go or how to stop them
JA: Have you ever dealt with this before? Are you having any shortness of breath?
Customer: No and very rarely
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No. I have been going through bad anxiety the past month. But am feeling less anxious now but it still happens

This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

bad anxiety symptoms can cause heart palpitations often.

you may need treatment for your anxiety symptoms

there are medications like propranolol which can help slow down fast heart rate from bad anxiety symptoms

do you have a GP doctor you can talk to about your palpitations?
