What to do when your heart keeps skipping a beat
When you get the feeling that your heart is beating too fast, pounding, fluttering or seems to be “skipping a beat”, you probably have what is commonly referred to as palpitations. Many things can cause palpitations: excitement, stress, pregnancy, strong coffee and some medications. They are also associated with some medical conditions, such as gastritis and dehydration. They are usually more uncomfortable than dangerous.
