I've been experiencing palpations since May 10th of this year, I took a stress test, EKG, blood tests, echocardiogram and also I wore a monitoring device for 7 days, everything was normal. Also my doctor prescribe Propranolol 10mg and it seems as if the palpations are more frequent than usual. Could you please suggest a solution to my problem?
By 'palpitations', I'm assuming you mean PACs and/or PVCs. If that it the case, I would recommend you 1.) Try changing your diet. and 2.) Stop worrying about them.
A diet low in salt, sugar and fat helps many people out with their PACs and PVCs. Also, make sure to drink lots of water and exercise if possible. And, as you probably know, the big things to avoid are caffeine and alcohol which cause them in some people.
Not worrying about them is easier said than done but is a must if you're going to accept them. Accepting that PACs and PVCs are a part of your life and realizing that they can occur frequently and not harm you is an important part of lessening them. Or at least lessening their impact.
