Help!! every time i get my crohns somewhat settled on immunosupressant drugs(Humira etc - not steroids i know they give palps!!) i keep gettin palpitations & skipped beats - it feels like someone's kicking a football at me - if they go on for a while i feel like i'm going to get sick & pass lots of wind & they kinda seem to run up my throat & I can feel a bit breathless with them. In def not stressed but the thoughs of having to tell my dr & being told Im stressed is begining to stress me out a bit - tend to use stress when they don't know whats wrong with you!! Before when I got them no one knew why I was gettin them!! Have heart tests done etc.. all ok before.

Does anyone else get palps on a regular basis when things are going well??? any suggestions as to whats going on??

Sometimes I do. They can be rather annoying. Actually your heart adds a beat to instead of skipping a beat as it "feels". Anxiety can cause it too. I take lexapro 10mg a day to keep my classic A syndrome under control. It does help. You do need to mention it to the doctor though. My husband them to the point he passed out while driving one day! He takes lexapro too. Every now and then he still gets them but they are no where near as strong. I am the type that handles stress well when I'm going through it and tend to fall apart physically after the stressor has passed?
