Intermittent palpitations irregular rhythm, 1abnormal EKG in PCP office. Tried to have holster but allergic to scrub gel or sticker. Now constipation seems to increase palps - however fewer episodes now am gluten free, omeprazole free, MSG additive free times 3 weeks. Anyone have a similar story? I'm trying to resolve constipation without increasing palpitations and dizziness!!! On Miralax cabbage rice beans aloe dandelion veggies fruit gf oatmeal flaxseeds and still not good 6 days now!!!! Worried about dulcolAx re coloring/additives otherwise would try it.

What is the nature of your abnormal EKG. Mine is supposedly abnormal as well, but my abnormality is an inverted T-Wave, which I've had all my adult life. What did the doctor say and suggest for follow-ups?

Event monitors are available in different configurations, traditional, as you discussed, implantable, and one that works just by placing your thumb on metal pads on the device.

See the following page for examples.

Constipation, in terms of the condition or of the bearing down to attempt a movement, which of these make your palpitations worse?

Drink ample water, in warm weather, we sweat so much, even if not perceptible as visibly dampened clothing, for the loss of water by sweating deprives the large intestine of an adequate supply. The large intestine is responsible for removing water from intestines, the more we sweat, the less available in the intestines, and this contributes to constipation.

Constipation can be worsened by certain medications and illicit drugs.

As JungRule suggested, drinking plenty of water, and eating fresh fruit (in my case) really helps with constipation. Also, you might ask your Doctor about Colace. As far as the palps, when I am in a vicious PVC cycle, nothing seems to work except time. And trying not to worry about them too much. Welcome .

I wish you the best :-)
