Thanks for writing to us.
Changes which you have described in ECG may normally be present in young women, and may not have much significance.
Shortness of breath can be due to several reasons including anaemia , hypothyroidism and lung related problem . In your case, it is unlikely that it is due to a heart related problem ,
We could get a 2D Echocardiogram done to be absolutely sure.
Till then, the following lifestyle modification measures should help:
-eat lots of fresh XXXXXXX leafy vegetables , fresh fruits , nuts , salads ,
-avoid fatty ,fried , junk food ,
-take more amount of sprouted pulses , skim milk ,
Avoid smoking and excessive intake of alcohol
Exercise regularly
Get 8 hours of sleep
Please see a general physician so that a proper examination can be done and other causes of shortness of breath can be ruled out.
Hope that helps
Let me know if you have any more questions
take care

I often have an irregular heartbeat during the course of the day (5 to 6 times). I can feel gas moving around in my system almost everytime this occurs. I often have rapid heartbeats which are relieved by passing . I was hospitalized before because I thought tI was having a heart attack but after thorough testing (ekg, ultrasound, stress test, wearing a heart monitor at home) they found nothing. What could be a possible avenue that I can pursue to finally get rid of this or at least be able to treat it.

I am a man 40 years old. I walk 9.1 kms every week. Every time I go to the doctor he always tell me that my heart is smooth. When I tried ECG it was perfect. However after I masturbate I get chest pressures. After 24 hours everything becomes normal again and I become a healthy man.

Is there anything wrong that I get chest pressure after I masturbate?
