My palpitations mainly occur after eating along with much stomach gas. I also feel a little flushed. It scares me since this has started happening just a few weeks ago. I have been to the doctor and had the Holter monitor but nothing was found to be abnormal.

I have a serious heart palpitation. I have gone through so many tests, taken all kinds of drugs but am still battling with heart palpitations that I cannot sleep in the night, or even in the day time.

When I lay down at night I am aware of my heart palpitations and my pulse is 50 bpm, blood pressure is normal range and my TSH is 4.8. I feel tired when I wake up.

I had irregular heartbeat some time ago and I am using digoxin, aspirin, clopidogrel, amlodipine and atorvastatin. These worked well but recently I started experiencing erectile dysfunction. I don't know the cause.
