Should I be worried about heart palpitations while running?


Answer by  worker3742 (208)

That is a tough one. The heart does take on more work when your running. I would go to a doctor first and see if its ok to run at all.

Absolutely, yet. This is not normal, and I would consult your doctor immediately, and cease running until you find out what exactly the problem is, as it could be serious.

Heart beat irregularities may be a sign of serious problems. You should certainly speak with your doctor and follow their advice.

This is a warning sign that something is going on inside. Take this sign and see your doctor so he can run a EKG. Either your running to hard, to fast or to long or there is an underlying problem that has started. Your age can be a factor, as well as your weight.

You should be very concerned if you are having heart palpitations while you run. You should go to your doctor for a complete physical as soon as possible. The doctor can perform a stress test to give you advice on how much exercise you should be doing. Work with the doctor for a fitness program that works for you.

I would not be to worried about hear palpitations while running. Your heart naturally beats stronger during strenuous exercise. Though you may want to visit your doctor just to be sure nothing is seriously wrong.
