  1. Don’t forget adrenal fatigue, as this can cause palpitations and/or the heart to go into tacchycardic states. I experience this for several months and it took several doctors before I was diagnosed. Apparently, adrenal fatigue is not a recognized disease to Western medicine doctors. What a mistake.

  2. Thanks so much Lindy. Yes, I am sure mine is a partial list and I so appreciate others adding in their own wisdom. It’s kinda what I dreamed this site would be about….all of us adding our piece to this puzzle of illness and creating a picture that would help us all achieve better health.

    I will do some research on adrenal fatique as that is a new term for me. I have studied adrenal exhaustion before but it’s been so long…..I did not remember heart palpitations being a symptom so thanks, again, for adding that information and I hope you’ll visit often.


  3. ps. In reading a little bit about adrenal problems, including adrenal fatique and also adrenal exhaustion, or hypoadrenia, it quickly becomes apparent that there are a lot of different symptoms of this particular health challenge. It’s troubling to me that adrenal fatique is not accepted as a medical condition from the medical community but if you look at how long it took them to recognize fibromyalgia as a true health challenge, I guess it fits a sort of pattern.

    Among the symptoms I found listed on various websites (by the way, Lindy, none have listed heart palpitations yet but I just started looking tonight) are:

    Joint Pain
    Nerves and Anxiety Problems
    Cravings for Carbs
    Muscle Pains and Aches
    Fatique (of course)

    A lot of people who have hypoadrenia report an overall “just not feeling well” sense.

    There’s also some info on the link between diabetes and adrenal fatigue. For more on diabetes, I have a list of articles on my site and will probably, in the future, be adding one on adrenal fatique too. https://www.askahealer.com/diabetes.html

  4. Update….since this post and the comments added, I did indeed research adrenal fatique. Have 3pages on the site about that now:

    General info on adrenal fatique
    Dietary guidelines for folks with adrenal insufficiency
    Information about medical and alternative medicine approaches to treating this health challenge

  5. Thank you for posting this information. It will help a lot of people especially those who are at risk in heart attacks

  6. Sue: I always visit sites that people want to link here at Healthy Choices Spirited Wellness Blog. If they are primarily to sell prescription medications, I don’t list them. Since the first thing I saw on your site was a lengthy ad about Kamagra Tablets, I am not linking your site.

    Yes, heart palpitations can certainly be a warning that there is a cardiovascular health issue and, as you said further down on the same page, it can also be a sign of anxiety.

    If you want to come back and post an original article on the subject of anxiety, since you seem to have personal experience with it, and link to an informational page on your site, I will reconsider linking you.

    However, heart palpitations may occur for any number of reasons, as I mentioned in the article so if there is no history of heart problems, I wouldn’t be overly concerned of heart attack dangers. Any good doctor will have it ruled out.
