Brief Answer:
Simple EKG can solve your issue...

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

Just by increased heart rate and cheek pain, I cant conclude that you were having Heart stroke. If you have a chest pain with radiation to cheeks could be a sign of heart problem.

A simple EKG can solve your problem. It gives fundamental clue about every possibility. So I suggest you to get EKG done from your nearest physician.

I have had a EKG, other than a heart murmur, the results showed a good heart. I don't have any chest pains with these incidences, however just worried it might lead to a stroke or heart attack...I suppose it could be simply anxiety, but you never know. Thankyou...

Brief Answer:
Heart murmur could be due to valvular issue..

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back,
A heart murmur indicates an valular problem of heart and its not a sign of heart attack.
The severity grading of heart murmur could be known by a 2D -ECHO test. And your Gastric issue can be solved by using Omeprazole or Pantaprazole early morning on empty stomach.

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.

Every once in a while I can feel what I believe is a skipped, or extra heartbeat. I have no pain or dizziness or shortness of breath along with this. I do suffer from panic/anxiety and I am currently on Xanax for it. I am also on Levothyroxine for Hypothyroidism. My question is this: I have a trip to Cedar Point coming up in August and I want to know if I should be concerned about going on thrill rides and rollercoasters with my family.
