Fast heart beat when waking up in the morning

Patient: Im 25 yrs old.. when i woke up in the morning i get my heart beat fast… is this a problem….

 

 

Symptoms: shivering

 

 

Doctor: Thanks for consulting us. Waking up with fast heart beat at this age usually does not suggest any heart disease. It coul d be bad dream that made you to get up from sleep. If the episode of palpitations (fast heart beat) are felt during day time also, consult cardiologist and go for work up. Check for thyroid status also when ever you consult doctor.
