@skiesareclearing i also have dry mouth but i already drink... :( i dont know if thats the cause
natrium=sodium.
I read on previous page someone mentioned potassium caused palpitation maybe because its imbalance.
I take BB for heart issue.
Is potassium, sodium blood test accurate?

You might want to get your sodium and potassium levels checked. When I went into an adrenal crisis I got that sledgehammer heart beat in the ears and it is a warning something is wrong. I discovered in my case that when adrenal output goes down (sometimes due to true Vitamin A deficiency), you end up with an electrolyte imbalance. In my case as a result the kidneys stopped the normal process of excreting excess potassium. Instead, the appropriate adrenal message they stopped excreting potassium and started excreting sodium (salt) which is a rather quick trip to death if not rectified. I then discovered I had to monitor potassium in my food, avoiding high potassium foods or I would have that heart in the ear pounding, as well as heart malfunctions and pain like a knife in my back through my heart.

I found that drinking tons of water, as almost everyone I consulted told me to, did nothing for the dry mouth problem. I'm not sure what did help but it's much better now. Maybe it has to do with taking potassium, because the dry mouth improved since taking potassium for some weeks. I don't know if that's coincidence or a result of the potassium.
As for the potassium & sodium labs, I assume they are accurate. Why wouldn't they be?
If you're not taking potassium, you could try it, starting with a small (99 mg) amount and slowly increasing if it does nothing or seems to be helping. Obviously if you notice your symptoms worsening, you stop. It's a cheap supplement and worth giving it a try. In my opinion. Are you seeing a doctor?

@skiesareclearing the standard potassium sodium blood test came up normal. The sodium is low instead. So im confused. :(
From what i read the magnesium serum blood test isnt really accurate so thats why i ask about potassium, sodium.
Not seeing doctor at the moment cause they arent really helpfull. But maybe later.

I wish I could be of help, but I've told you all I know-- or think I know-- and I don't know what else to say. I assume you've read this whole thread; you might find some clues.

hello everyone, hope you all feel better soon, i'm having this problem since 3 years, let me tell you how it started, one day i was having problem with my breath, it's very strange feeling and no body know about it, even doctors didn't know what is it, my breath stops for like 6 or 8 seconds then return, i was feeling i'm going to die, if it continued i would have been died already, i was feeling something in my stomach or behind my lungs, it's between my heart and my belly, something that go down when that was happening to me, i can't explain how exactly it feels like, it feels like when you drive your car from high street then suddenly you go to low street, but it was so bad, when this was happening to me i was screaming for help, it was happening like 5 or 7 times a day, the next day i went to emergency hospital room, they did took picture for my lungs and gave me oxygen, and they gave me medicine, they said i have inflammation in my lungs, i had this before and many people has it, but this usually doesn't make me feel like this,

when i returned home, i took the medicine that the doctor gave me, there was like 3 or 4 medicine, one of the medicine has Penicillin, i took one pill of this and i went to trip to death after 30 minutes, i had a deadly Penicillin allergy, this Penicillin is very dangerous medicine, after reading about it, i read that many people died from Penicillin allergy, my heart rate become so fast, my blood pressure become so high, i was shaking, i couldn't breathe, it was hard to breathe, i felt hard numbness in my belly and hands, i felt i'm really going to die, there was one of my family member with me inside the house, he took me to emergency fast, it was late at night, i remember he was crossing red street lamps and going so fast, he was driving crazy, i remember i was screaming inside the car and asking God for forgiveness because i knew i will die in any second, it was the baddest day in my life, when we arrived, he opened the door for me and hold me, he was screaming for doctors, i remember everybody came to see what's happening, they put me on hospital bed, and gave me 1 medicine injected with needle and another pill, the hospital was not so far, i survived,

after 20 or 30 minutes i felt much better, my blood pressure and heart beats went down, but after 20 minutes my heart beats start beating fast again, they gave me another 10mg pill for heart beat, then after like 30 minutes i felt much better, they said everything good now, i returned home, when i was home i was feeling my heart returned to beat fast again, fast enough, to the point you feel you can't breathe, you feel dizziness and about to fainting, we went back to emergency, they put me on bed and contacted heart monitor, it was fast, i remember it was 140, the first time was faster i think it was 160 beat in a minute the first time after i took the Penicillin, and my blood pressure was 200/100 , the doctor said do you have any heart problems, i never had, and i'm sporty guy and have a muscle fit body, he told me we should do Echo heart picture, but the hospital wasn't having this machine so he gave me a number for a private heart doctor to do this picture for me, it was morning, so i went to that doctor and took the picture, he said you don't have anything, you are young healthy handsome man, i was happy but i told him, i'm afraid that my heart beats will go fast again, what should i do if this happened,

he gave me medicine for that and told me use 1 pill just in case, and that probably won't happen, he said, this medicine that he gave me i take since 3 years, it's name is Concor 5mg, sometimes i take one pill sometimes 2, and i reached to the point where i was taking 3 and 4 and 5 and 6 pills a day, this is very crazy, because this is very dangerous medicine, all doctors won't tell you to take more than 1 pill a day, they usually give one pill 2.5mg and for the hardest problem they give 5mg per day, why i was taking this amount you ask? because my heart beats was going fast and not feeling comfortable,i don't have any other ways to control it, so whenever my heart beats go fast i take a pill ASAP, i went to other doctors and i made another Echo picture and none of them could find the reason and no one fixed my issue, they all said i don't have any problem with my heart, the first issue i had was different, the one i mentioned in the beginning, it stopped, they both dangerous, i kept taking this medicine since 3 years till now,

it does make my heart beats go normal and also my blood pressure, but i still feeling my heart beats, i feel my beats beating hard everywhere cross my body, and you can see my body moving specially in my belly, i feel the beats in my head, in my hands, legs, belly, ears, wherever i put my hand on...even when my heart rate and blood pressure are normal
this my story in short, i don't take more than 2 pills a day, usually i take only 1 pill, and i take them on my responsibility because none of the doctors told me to take 2 pills, i don't go to doctors anymore because no body know my problem, some said that some people has fast heart beats for reasons and some has fast heart beats without a reason that they can find in heart science..

my age is in early thirty and i'm from Jordan, Middleeast,
i usually don't post on forums at all but this discussion made me thinking, i felt i should share my story with you and let you know you are not alone, and maybe some day some doctor might come cross this discussion and try to find solution for people like us,
my english is not so good but i hope you can understand...

at the end, i want to say...i never felt that i has heart that beating almost every second inside my body until i came cross this problem..
i wish you all, a healthy and happy long life.
