Heart palpitations muscle spasms

Common Questions and Answers about Heart palpitations muscle spasms


I was diagnosed with Lupus a few years ago, and went through a remission where I had very little symptoms, but about a year ago started getting muscle spasms. First they were in my heart area, so I was running to the ER many times with "heart trouble" only to be told that there was nothing wrong with my heart. I then finally got a new doc that seemed to understand what was going on, and he put me on Methocarbomal, 750mg, twice a day. They help immensely.
sounds like you may have mitral valve prolapse, it's not fatal you just get palpiations and chest pains, and lightheadedness and headaches are also common, if it makes you feel any better im 15 and have palpitations, and lightheadedness ,sometimes i also get weird chest pains that feel like i have a bubble in my heart, or like part of my heart isnt working.
also, the left side of my face sometimes goes numb when my heart begins messing up. it hasnt always done this but also i get random feelings (feel like twitches or muscle spasms) mostly around my heart area but also other random places on my body. ive been to cardiologists years ago but the monitor never detected anything (most likely because my heart irregularity is irregular.........duh) anyways hoping for some kind of ideas of what could be wrong or if this is serious.
Your hormones are changing levels- when progesterone dominates it causes muscle weakness, and your GI tract is made of muscle. If you sphincters become weak, it causes GERD and therefore eventual heart palpitations in some people due to irritation of the Vegas nerve. Your whole mission should be to create a body that is as inflammation free as possible. Follow the GERD diet- no spicy foods, no red meat, no fats and oils except healthy flax and other oils that are good for the body.
I suffer from severe heart palpitations (female - age 39). Five to six times per day I feel funny things going on in my heart. Sometimes I get three hard beats followed by a pause and then a thump. Other times I just get a thump and yet other times a fluttering feeling. I have been through every test imaginable and the doctors cannot find anything wrong with me.
I am not sure cardiologists have any answers, because it seems they are concerned with diseases and defects of the heart. If the palpitations and rapid heart rate are MS related, it seems to me it is some sort of problem in the "wiring" which controls the heart. But I am just a lay person with MS. Then again, who knows how we feel better than we and our fellow sufferers do?
Hello, just wanted to say that I too have been suffering with esophagul spasms which bring on heart palpitations, breathlessness and even twitching.. plus constant discomfort in my chest on my left side about where my ribs are... Ive been trying to figure out for some time what's causing this and I think i got it down to parasites causing my stomach to spit food back up. So i started on a parasite cleanse, and it seemed to really help.
I have been taking Simva Statin for the past 3 years to lower my cholestreol which it has done. However I have also suffered from bad muscle spasms in my legs in the evening and at night. I decided to stop the statins and the spasms have gone immediately thank goodness ! I will never take this statin again but I know I have to still control my cholesterol. Does anyone know of a statin that will not give me leg spasms ?

For almost 1 year now I have had horrible muscle spasms in my abs when I do sit ups. I do a lot of running and other exercise and my abs never tighten up like that any other time other than doing sit ups. Everytime I try to do sit ups I can get through about 10 then the upper right abdominal area completely tightens and feels like a really really bad charlie horse. I'm just looking for any advice or experience with this that anyone can give me.
As the years went on, I began having several hours a day in the morning mostly were my knees would buckle, I will be shaky, studder, muscle spasms, muscle jerking, contracting, heart palpitations and fast heart rate, difficulty swallowing. This lasts minutes to a few hours ranging in intensity. Drinking K. filled drinks have always helped and have been found to have low K. in the past. Now my muscle weakness is becoming permenant.
Also, it is important to remember that anxiety is a psychological and physiological condition with a multitude of symptoms, including heart palpitations, muscle tension, fatigue, nausea, chest pain, shortness of breath, headaches, and GI symptoms such as diarrhea to name a few. Anxiety can also be accompanied with panic attacks such as a feeling of impending doom or death.
never worried about it being my heart until recently when I had 4 signs of a heart attack. I went to the local ER where they ran an EKG & blood work that showed no signs of trouble. I also have no problems such as high bp, high cholesterol, I don't smoke or drink and there is no family history. However, the doctor decided to do a heart cath anyway which of course showed no problems. However, I continue to have chest pain.
Acid production increases during periods when you are stressed, so it would make sense acid reflux could act up more at those times and also after you have been sleeping, if you lay pretty flat. Esophageal spasms can feel much like heart pain. You need to have a doctor diagnose you and seek treatment, because if you are getting acid on your esophagus, that is very bad for it...
I have heart palpitations too.... I have never known what the palpitations are from? I do have FMS/CFS/MPS and Hypoparathyroidism, Hypocalcemia and Hashimoto's an autoimmune Thyroid Disease too. This is the first time I have heard that heart palpitations are a symptom of CPS.
I also suffer from heart palpitations (PVCs and PACs), which, to my understanding, could be related to the muscle spasms. I've seen a cardiologist and they said that my heart is ok (I've had echos, loop monitors, chest X-rays and EKGs done). I've had these annoying spasms for the past couple of years and they're driving me crazy!
They include elavil, desipiramine, pamelor, neurontin, lyrica, cymbalta, tegretol, etc. Muscle spasms all over the body, without weakness, atrophy or spasticity and a normal EMG is most consistent a benign fasiculation syndrome. This can occur after a viral syndrome, after exercise or in normal people.

I have been dealing with what i believe to be esophageal spasms for 2 years. My symptoms include nearly constant chest pain and pressure, extreame tightness and pressure in my lower throat, tachycardia, bloating feeling intermittantly. I have seen GI, ENT, Cardiologist, Rhematologist. All doctors were unable to pin point what was going on with me.
MaryKay, Are we talking palpitations or spasms? I ask because I had a heart attack in January due to spasm - rare but it does happen. No high blood pressure, no blockages, just a spasm that triggered the cardiac event. I am being treated by the cardio for angina but I suspect it is related to the MS instead. The problem with the medical comunity is finding a doctor that is williing to look at one of our systems interferring with another.

I'm about to go crazy dealing with this. Wondering if someone can help me. I am a 27 year old male. I have had pretty severe rheumatoid arthritis/ankylosing spondylitis for about 7 years now. I am about 6' tall and 235 pounds. I have generalized anxiety disorder and occasional depression. The arthritis is all over my torso, including my chest around my sternum. I had been taking Hydrocodone regularly since October of 2008. They were 10/325.
I have a great doctor. But, she is dumbfounded. I was bite by a dog (had all shots) in my knee October 21st. I went to the doc the same day with swelling, and pain in knee (the knee was hot). I was prescribed Augmentin and Etodolac. I was better after my 10 day course of medicine. But, about 1 and 1/2 days after meds were out of my system I started experiencing muscle jerks, fasiculations, spasms, and pain.
no one knows what the cause is although I have had quite a few heart tests with benign results. It's been suggested that it might just be muscle or tissue spasms in the left breast area. Hm... Anyway, just wanted to let you know that there are others who share similar problems. Good luck!
2 years ago was driving in car with kids and had a big flutter or squeeze in my chest so strong that my vision faded around the edges and I almost passed out- it made me cough and then I was better but went to the ER immediately where after a negative cardiac workup i was diagnosed with esophageal spasms- I did follow up with a cardio and had EKG, ECHO, stress test, labs all saying my heart is very healthy - the episode was followed with lots of burping and i had eated alot of spicy food prior.
