Since a teenager, when awakened- OR- if I slept less than 30 minutes, I would awake with palpitations. Lately, if I doze in between an awake and asleep state and then awaken, I have palpitations. I suspect this to be a hormonal release of some kind. Wonder if you know the exact cause? Could this be serious regarding heart issues? No other symptoms noted. Possible past history of unstable angina that seems resolved in past few years. Age is 50's.
