Question: Hi i have had slight pains in my chest at the left handside for a about a week and a half now and doesnt seem to be going away. I have ocd which can give me anxiety alot but i have been checked by a local doctor and they have said that my heart rate, blood pressure are fine nothing wrong with that side. The doctor said to relax which im trying to do and exercise but it is still there wee niggling pains just like heart palpitations and cant seem to get rid of it. If anyone has any advice would be much appreciated? Thanks

Brief Answer:
You need benzodiazepine

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for using healthcare magic. I, Dr Abhishek Kapoor, would help you in this query.

Now doubt, this is a anxiety attack. If you have had any benzodiazepine like klonopin or xanax, you can take it. It would help to subside the anxiety attack. In case, you do not have, you can go to any emergency set up nearby your home and get it.

If you need further help, you can ask.

Hello, I have a resting heart rate of 112- when I excercise it literally only takes my heart rate to speed of to 160 or higher in minutes. I have been eating lots of green lately, and have been trying to work out- but get light headed very easy. I am a 29 year old female.

My brother is having a heart cath tomorrow. Apparently he has had a heart attack sometime in the last ten years.

His heart rate has become uncontrollable with meds and sontinues to beat at 131. He said the doctor told him some rate (he couldn't remember) was at 25 and should be higher. Can you perhaps clarify what this may mean?

I have been prescribed isoptin 240 ml per day as my blood pressure has been up to 165 over 93. Also I have been getting palpitation which at times last up to a couple of hours. Had a heart monitor put on . showed my heart rate going up to 114. resting at about 66. Which I know is good. the results of the monitor showed over 2000 ectopic episodes. Is this anything to worry about.
