[YEA] A palpitation is an abnormality of heartbeat that causes a conscious awareness of its beating, whether it is too slow, too fast, irregular, or missing in between at its normal frequency. I have been a heart patient for the last ten years and I felt worst from my palpitation.
Every fifth beat of my heart went missing and I felt a noisy gear like sound in my heart. The feeling was anxiety but no pain. I went to ER, blood analysis and ECG were perfect except my Magnesium was a bit low. Doctor attending me gave me a sip of Magnesium solution. I came back home hale and hearty.
The next day, I again noticed the palpitation, this time 15th beat was missing. I went to gym and did my regular yoga, cardio and light weight exercise. The palpitation was gone. Mind you I had not exercised due to flue like symptoms earlier. Since then, I keep Magnesium level to normal, keep exercising and eating less than what I use to eat earlier. I am better and have not felt palpitation yet.
I think controlling the amount and quality of food is key to solve the problem. Always eat and fill 1/3 rd of your stomach. Keep 1/3rd for water and 1/3rd should remain empty. You will live for a long time.
