When did these palpitations start? How long did they last? What did it feel like? Could I identify possible triggers? What medication did I take, how much? Did I take my pulse?

Record it here

These are only a few of the questions your doctor could ask you.

What about all the questions you have for him? My first few appointments I had question upon question. I don’t remember all the answers.

All the questions, the answers, medication types and quantities. Possible triggers.
