  • If you're pregnant, it can be because you have a lot more blood circulating through you than when you are not pregnant, and that causes your body to work harder. Since you're going to ask your dr, all I can say is get some rest and some good healthy food, and if you're exercising to maybe tone it down a bit, maybe just walk or something.

  • i know i have more blood & it could cause this also, but i got like this before but it was less and didnt make me feel like i was about to literally fall down and faint. i was asking if it sounded like arrythmia so i could kno options
