My heart palps feel like my heart skips beats


Hi all- thanks for the add to this group. I have a question about heart palpitations. I get them – all the time. Doc says they are benighn – which probably means, “not life threatening and I don’t know what is causing them.” My heart palps feel like my heart skips beats. I take magnesium glycinate at night before bed to help with sleep. Maybe I need to take more? I’m taking about 350mg. – My question – has anyone on here had heart palps and was able to get rid of them either with some magnesium protocal or otherwise? Thanks in advance!

  1. In other words, implement the Root Cause Protocol after getting the recommended tests.

    ~ moderator

  2. I had them along with eye spasms. Both are gone since i started taking magnesium. I take 400 mg of glycinate at night and 200 in the morning

  3. For mine I needed more potassium, not mag. If I stay ontop of my supplements, I don't get them.

  4. I get them- always assume it's from coffee… but I only drink a cup a day. FOLLOWING

  5. I had them non stop all of the time and had a stool test and found a host of parasites sibo and h PYLORI and treating the gut and taking away sugar gluten eggs and dairy are helping

  6. Potassium fixed mine

  7. Potassium fixed mine too.

  8. I get them quite a lot and find coughing puts my heart back into proper rhythm most of the time. I take Good Health Organic Magnesium Ultra.

  9. I have super ventricular tac and it's horrid! Coughing certainly helps my heart get back in to rhythm. if I'm low on vitamin b it's worse so perhaps check that out. I'm following also

  10. Hey did you ever get the heart palpitations where your heart feels like it's stuck and it's not gonna start again for a few seconds and you had feels all weird

  11. Are you getting an ache with the palpitations at the same time

  12. Input needed here. Thanks

  13. Get a chiropractor adjustment. C3 and c4 might be out directly related to heart. Helped mine immediately.

  14. Heart palps are normally
    Low mag
    Low potassium
    Low FT3/high FT3
    Low iron
    Food sensitivities

  15. Adrenal stress

  16. Yes, this was me. When my heart first start racing they ran every heart test but they were all normal. They put me on heart meds just because, but they still happened. My left side would go numb and I'm thinking stroke. Mind you I was only in my 30's. Had an MRI. All normal. Doctors tried to say it was a panic attack but finally another doctor told me it couldn't be because I can't make my heart go between 180-220 from a panic attack. Long story short, a doctor finally tested RBC Magnesium. I can't remember my initial number. It might have been as low as 1.5 or lower. I just remember him saying it was almost nonexistent. He put on a Magnesium supplement, Magnesium oxide. My numbers never moved and he gave up saying there could be a thousand reasons. So I started experimenting with Magnesium and I found my body loved Magnesium Gluconate. Once my level got to the low side of normal, all heart palpitations stopped – that were related to Magnesium. It took me a while to figure this out,but I am allergic to MSG. If I eat it, my heart races just like it did when I was low in Magnesium. By the way, what pulled me out of an MSG allergic reaction is B6 and B5, within 10 minutes. Amazing!
    So yes, it is absolutely possible to fix yourself. I'm living proof of that.

  17. I had them terribly! They'd happen now and again then became constant / not pleasant at all! Check your adrenals – perhaps do a DUTCH test – and give up refined sugar and gluten (if not grains). I'm much better now but still get them now and again and especially with the build up to my period!
    Your not alone. You just need to experiment with diet and supplements but highly recommend doing some tests. I've just had my results back so, with the help of my functional practitioner, I'll learn what to do to help my body even more.

  18. +1 on looking at yer thyroid.

  19. I got them from supplementing vit D, so then I tried to supplement magnesium to counteract, but it gave me peripheral neuralgia.

  20. Does a dr check thyroid at a regular blood test?

  21. F
    I, too, have them and was told that it was benign after seeing the cardiologist and having an echocardiogram and a holter monitor. My heart palps have come to more of a skip but I more of an intense chest tightness and shortness of breath that I have every night and it's causing insomnia. I truly believe it's coming from adrenal burnout and low cortisol in the morning and high at night. I'm waiting to get into a functional medicine Doctor Who is also an N. D. But I cannot get in until May 30
    I'm doing the protocol to a T. So just really wanting answers. I would love to see with this thread has to say.

  22. I dont know if this is the answer because I am new to this product but I started taking tissue salts 3 days ago and I feel so peaceful. I got the combo 12 by schusslers.

  23. Mine also felt like my heart skipped a beat. Or like I couldn't get air for one second. They started with pregnancy and then really bad with breastfeeding. I started taking natural calm and they went right away. This was before I found this group. For me it makes sense that my mag was depleted from pregnancy and lactation. But high stress will do the same.

  24. As soon as I added CoQ10 to protocol, palps stopped.

  25. Guys, I also wanted to add that I have heard a lot of information regarding cortisol and magnesium. And if your cortisol is low you need to cut back or lower magnesium until you get it leveled. The best way to get a true gauge of cortisol is to do a four point saliva test. I have yet to do this I have only done blood test and a 24 hour urine test but I have been told that neither one of those truly gives an idea of how your cortisol is changing throughout the day.

  26. I had those scary heart palps a few years ago and slowly learned that I needed more potassium and magnesium. I am slightly hyperthyroid so those minerals get "wasted"…they are flushed out. Unless I take them in supplement form the palps come back. I find that 1/2 tsp potassium bicarbonate (mixed with the juice of a lemon/lime, or with apple cider vinegar) twice a day and 1/2 tsp potassium gluconate twice a day as well as various forms of magnesium (have to watch the bowel tolerance so some of that is topical) have completey eliminated the palps! My blood tests still show both potassium and magnesium in the lower half of normal but I'd hate to think how low they would be if I didn't take the supplements.

  27. You should get checked for atrial fibrillation and for hypothyroidism. Both causes heart palp.

  28. Besides electrolyte deficiencies, adrenal, & thyroid issues, food sensitivities & histamine intolerance can also create palps. Mine were caused by all of the above!

  29. I get them and sometimes it's very frequent for a time and then they disappear. I'm wearing a 30 day event monitor right now that has picked anything up in over 15 days. Figures… I did change the way I take my magnesium though. I am now taking magnesium oxide at night and malate during the day. Also doing the adrenal cocktail and diatomaceous earth. The heart palps and skips sometimes scare me especially since I've previously had a stroke.

  30. Mercury toxicity could be a reason Great plains lab can do a test

  31. For me Low Potassium and Hashimotos.

  32. Mine are gone. 600 mag Glycinate at bed. 200-400 Malate

  33. Taken over the day from breakfast to dinner. Take a few Mag phos 6x in-between . Do the adrenal cocktail with grapefruit juice coconut water sea salt. Eat 4-6 prunes, Vitamin b complex. Paleo auto immune protocol is the way I eat.

  34. Just happened to see on that he says when iron is too high it can cause heart arrhythmia. he says most important blood test is to get your serum ferritin levels checked.

  35. Dehydration? U can drink liquids and be dehydrated if ur body not working right

  36. I was at a health show in Atlanta two yrs ago and also go every year..i was having heart papatations walking around and came up on a booth selling magnesium products and talking a bit i ask would they help papatations as i am having them at that moment..he said have seat there and came over after a few minutes as they were busy..he said here rub this on and did and after about 3-4 minutes the papatations stopped…was called magne sport…they had the also magne cream and the spray. I like them both…look them up and all i can say it helped me….and still use them daily..message me…and will inform you where i get them

  37. magnesium, potassium, salt, coQ 10, hawthorne berries are all worth looking into
    350 mg magnesium once a day is probably a lot less than you need – have you tried spreading your mag intake into 200 mg doses throughout the day?

  38. what causes the heart to beat in a VERY WEAK manner ?

  39. From what I've read taurine helps regulate heart rhythm while simultaneously helping magnesium and calcium enter the cells
