Brief Answer:
please see below.

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir
Your ECG seems fine. You have good EF of 62%. I would like to know your exercise capacity.
You must continue your medicines. You must not smoke and you must remain stress free. Do daily exercise under your doctor's guidance. You should get your blood cholesterol sugar and bp checked regularly. You must maintain ideal weight. These are the recommended things you can do for prevention of future events.
Sincerely
Sukhvinder

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?

I have had a thudding heartbeat for two days, off and on, mostly on. Also accompanied by shortness of breath. The heartbeat isn't fast or irregular, but I can feel it, like it's heavy in my chest. I've had this before a few years ago, and my doctor thought it was anxiety and wanted to out me on an anti anxiety drug, but I felt like it was a physical issue instead of anxiety. I have low stress, not usually anxious, work out a few times a week, non smoker (for 5 years) recently lost about 35 lbs (1-1/2 years ago) Could this be allergies?
