Palps
Why is it that one gets palpitations mostly at night or when resting. I have been to a cardiologist who did a sonar as well as an ECG, as well as a stress test but could not see anything wrong. He did not even think it is worth the while for me to have the holter on for 24 hours.

The palps are quite bad at night preventing me somtimes to fall asleep or waking me up.

It is driving me mad. Is my only option now to live with it, as the doc did not give me any medication. It is not just one or two nights that I get is, it is fricken every night. Must I just sit and wait for my heart to stop completely. I tried breating, Aterax, Alzam, coughing , I am not drinking any cafeine but nothing helps, please advise where to from here as the cardiologist did not help me.
And it is not in my mind I can FEEL it man.
Cheers

Jaco, you can ask your doctor to prescribe you a â-blokker like Purbloka® 10-40mg at night. It should take care of the palpitations. Good luck.
