Palpitations and fast heart beats
Why do I keep having palpitations when I walk or have a very fast heartbeat when on my knees?  Cause it would race so fast and hard that it literary almost feels like it could jump out of my chest.

Hi there. Palpitations could arise due to various causes like during stress, fear, panic attack, vigorous physical activity, an overactive thyroid and a low blood sugar level, anemia, fever, dehydration etc. hormonal changes during pregnancy, menses, perimenopausal period etc, medicines like asthma inhalers, over treated hypothyroidism can cause palpitations,  some antiarrythmics can cause other irregular heart rhythms, decongestants, caffeine, etc.  Heart problems like heart attacks, heart disease or risk factors, heart valve problems, abnormal electrolytes levels. You need to get an electrocardiogram , holter or event monitor for 24 -48 hours. ECHOcardiography, stress test etc depending on the results of ecg and as deemed necessary by the cardiologist. Treatment would be according to diagnosis. Hope this helps. Take care.
