Palpitations

Is it normal to get Palpitations when urinating? I have a floppy valve (Mitral) and I have noticed that my heart starts beating VERY fast while I'm urinating and then afterwards takes a while to calm down and then it is irregular for a while, and then normalizes.

does this make any sence? not a nice feeling.

Dear karen
It may be because you increase your intra abdominal pressure when going to the toilet. This needs looking at because if you feel bad during these episodes it probably needs treatment.
