Palpitations and MS

Hi all

I have been getting palpitations for the last 6 days - several times a day and mostly at rest.  Am wondering if it is an MS thing.

I know we all like to attribute strange symptoms to MS but as it is so much like the eye twitching I had and leg twitching, is this just an MS twitchy nerve playing up.

I don't drink alcohol or coffee and would not say I am stressed.  would be interested to hear from other MSers to see if you get the same.

I do, but my neuro thinks it's not related to my MS - I'm waiting to see a cardiologist. You really need to get it checked out properly. It could be an MS thing (there is a central nervous system input via the vagus nerve to the heart), but it could be something else.

Thanks for that Rizzo.  I will get it checked out but your vagus nerve information is also very interesting.
