Question by ponygirl: What might be causing my heart palpitations?
Been having them for about two weeks but they are much worse today. Feel dizzy and sleepy with each episode. In fact, I feel really sleepy and weak right now, even though I’ve not had a palpitaion in the last twenty minutes. Also a pounding sensation in my right ear. I can not go to er, as I am home and will not drive under these circumstances

First and foremost, if you are unable to drive and/or move you need to call 911 for an ambulance to you home and NOT Yahoo! Secondly, palpitations can be the result of many things, such as stress or heart conditions. Do you have any chest pain? If so does it radiate? These are key clues to a heart attack and/or stroke. Weakness on just on side of your body? You may have vertigo as well, which may cause the dizzy spells. Either way the only way to effectively find out is by contacting a MD. Several tests can be done, EKG, Stress Echo, EEG. Good luck!
