Hello,
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:
Diet
-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

A 54-year-old Type-A male business executive had been experiencing migrainelike headaches. One afternoon he also experienced light-headedness, slurred speech and mildly impaired motor function on his right side. One of his colleagues rushed him to the emergency room of a nearby hospital where blood pressure, blood gases, electrolytes, and an ECG were run. His blood pressure was 195/100 mm Hg, which he said was typical of what he had experienced during the past two years. Blood gases and electrolytes were normal. The ECG showed no arrhythmias but did demonstrate a left axis deviation. The gentleman was admitted to the hospital and a cerebral angiogram was performed which showed left cerebral hemorrhaging. 1. What is the diagnosis of this individual s disorder?2. What are the major contributing factors to this disorder?3. What could have been done to prevent this problem?4. What are the early warning symptoms prior to the complication?5. Why did the ECG show a left axis deviation?6. Why was there impaired motor function on the right side from cerebral hemorrhaging on the left side?

I am having constant thudding heartbeats with irregular or skipped beats.
This has been going on for the last five hours . I can't sleep. It has been bad for the last two days but not constant as it is now . I'm worried. I can't fall asleep . I seem to lurch awake even as I drift off with another powerful rushing feeling of thudding in my chest and more skipped beats.
I have been complaining to my doctor for 12 years of irregular beats. I have had several ECG and scans and they always tell me there's nothing wrong with the functioning of my heart but I can't ignore these symptoms that don't go away. I believe my stressing over them makes them worse but it's a vicious circle. I am meant to be on Citalopram but took one tablet and woke up in the middle of the night clenching my jaw with skipping beats . Looking up the side effects/contra indications it says should not take if suffer any heart rhythms problems. Why is my doctor giving me these ? So I daren't take them for fear of making things worse but I do need an anxiolytic as prescribed.
