i have been having palpitations for almost a year now. some weeks i dont have any and then other times they are non stop. they scare me so bad that they set me back every time i get them. i have cut out all caffiene. i guess my question is i wonder why i get them some weeks and not others. can anxiety really do this? thanks!

Hello there ! Your questions reminds me of another member who just recently had the same questions. Palpitations may be felt accompanying emotions such as excitement, stress, anxiety or fright. Normally a person is not aware of the beating of the heart, but with anxiety or put under stress, or being scared, a person may become aware of his or her own heartbeat.

Some of the medical conditions associated with palpitations include abnormalities in the heart valves, defects in the electrical system of the heart, cardiomyopathy and low red blood count.

I would suggest you see your physician to rule out any physical cause for your palpitations.
