← Return to Heart Palpitations
Welcome to Connect, MikeyP.
How frustrating not to find a cause or diagnosis and therefore no relief for your severe palpitations. I’m tagging fellow members @cynaburst @predictable @martishka @jigglejaws94 @mikefox909 @2880 and @debdeb on the discussion to see if they have some thoughts to add.
Mikey, Have you discussed supplements with your cardiologist?

Thanks for responding, yes I have talked to my cardiologist about supplements, Magnesium Citrate to be more accurate actually and he said ” Well if it helps you take it, but I would stick to the Magnesium Taurate ” He also said ( which is VERY true ) that Magnesium Citrate ( that’s the one that really works for me ) will make you run to the bathroom all day, so I don’t know what’s worse, having these really bad palps or literally running to the bathroom 15 times a day, it’s like you took a laxative. The Mag. Taurate really doesn’t do much if anything at all. Any and I mean ANY help would be greatly appreciated, I’m at my wits end with this, my quality of life has sunk lower than when I thought I was going to die from the Leukemia ( which I beat ) I can’t believe that it’s almost 2017 and these Dr.’s can’t figure out why we get palps, they can cure my cancer but can’t figure out how a guy with a normal heart gets severe palpitations. It’s astonishing to me, really it is.
