Help! Is my knee pain causing heart problem?

Knee pain

You should only get concerned if there is also chest pain, severe breathlessness, dizziness and/or fainting.

What you need to know:

  • Being aware of your heart beat is called having palpitations
  • It could also be due to medication such as some asthma medication (like ventolin, franol, theophylline)
  • Other causes may include exercise, lack of adequate sleep and alcohol overuse

Dr Flo,
I usually feel cold from my knees downwards. My heart beats so vigorously that I can hear it pounding especially when I am in a quiet place. Is there a problem?
