What does it mean when a heart beats , then stops, then starts beating again?


Answer by  Maria26 (185)

Palpitations can make someones heart beat, stop beating, then start beating again. This happens because there is a disruption in the hearts natural rhythm. Usually this is nothing to worry about, but if the person starts feeling dizzy, chest pains, or faints then it is time to see a doctor.

I've had this happen to me this weekend. It wouldn't happen when I was up walking, only when resting or lying down. I had gone to the doctor about this before and he drew some blood and said my magnesium levels were low. He gave me a prescription for magnesium.

I went through a period in my life where I had this condition. It was diagnosed as arrhythmia. I think a large majority of the time there is nothing really wrong with the heart and apparently this condition can be caused by stress. I practiced relaxation techniques and the condition went away fairly quickly.
