Is there any kind of heart condition where the heat effects your heart? I find that when the weather is hot, or if I’m in a hot shower, my heart pounds and feels uncomfortable until i’m cooled off. I also find that after eating a fairly heavy meal, my heart pounds. I’m a 26 year old female, fairly in shape. and I do have slight anxiety. But I can’t imagine anxiety being the culprit on this one. Any advice besides “see a doctor” would be great. Essentially — Heart pounding is due to arrhythmia. Read on. . Heart Arrhythmia or heartbeat irregularities are deviations from the normal, steady beating of the heart. Usually, a person does not feel the palpation of the heart and does not distinguish its rhythm. Both sick and healthy people can be affected by it. The disorder in a healthy person can occur due to such factors as extensive physical activity, excitement and * hot weather* ; abusing tobacco, alcohol, strong tea and coffee may add to that factor.
