Can anxiety cause heart palpitations?
I used to have heart palpitations for about a month until they stopped a few weeks ago. Sometimes it palpitates at least one time a week now. I have been to the doctor, and he doesn’t really know what could have caused it. He thinks it’s a heart valve problem, but I doubt he knows for sure. I do worry about a lot of things. Even in the back of my mind, I worry about things. I’m wanting to know can anxiety be the culprit.

An anxiety attack can cause palpitations. You get worked up and your heart begins beating faster and you start feeling your heart racing (which than feeds into the anxiety because now you can feel your heart beating faster). Other things can cause them as well. It can be very difficult to nail down. Several of the people I work with get palpitations because of coffee. I know a woman who gets them when she drinks wine. But, yes, anxiety can cause palpitations.
