15 hours of sleep in a day. Is it a symptoms of any heart disease?

It s a male age 45, he is overweight , blood pressure was 144/98, tightness in his chest , and the only other thing was he s very tired. Sleeps alot.....but, he has been putting in some extremely long hours at work.....with alot of added stress at work. Could it just be from the stress? He did make a doctor appointment but not until next Wed. at noon. I m just concerned he may wait too long. Am I overreacting? He did go to the ER, they took an EKG said it was alright and sent him home. that s why he went ahead and decided to make a doctor appt. anyway. He s just so tired all the time. He slept last night from 7 pm until 10 am this morning.

Hi well come to HCM.
Since he is having over wt and lethargic. sleepy.things like HYpothyroid, sleep apnoea,
depression, uncontrol DM etc are to be ruled out. So unless reports are there it is
difficult to give you any medical suggestion. Thanks

Hello. I am 43 yr. old and had a total abd. hysterectomy 9 weeks ago. I have been on 5 antibiotics since that time... cipro and then cephalexin for UTI that cipro did not take care of. I also had a severe yeast infection - dr. put me on diflucan for 10 days did not cure so he put me on Ketacanazole for 10 days along with monistat 7 day treatment. After 4th day of monistat abdomen hurt so bad had to go to emergency room. Said I had a vaginal bact. infection. put me on flagyll. I had been having diarrhea off and on ever since I had hysterectomy. Flagyll oddly enough gave my stools shape. I had to go back to ER 4 days after finishing flagyll. Blood test showed I had some low levels including low neutrophill% and low potassium level, WBC normal. Put me back on Flagyll three times a day for 14 days... they think that I have C. Diff. infection. Went to DR. for follow up two days later and my resting heart rate was 102 (normally in 60s) blood pressure up to 135/100 (normally around 111/67). Dr. sent me to have an ecg. ecg results came back with normal sinus rhyth. Nonspecific st abnormality / abnormal ecg. Vent. rate 87 BPM , PR int. 152 ms , QRS dur. 76 ms. , QT/QTR 356/427 ms, and P-R-T 49-23-2. When I went to exercise today abd. hurt and only did mild exercises for 18 min. I usually go about 1 hour. Checked blood pressure and it was 135/109. Is all of this related. Should I see cardiologist?

I am sixteen and one day at football practice my heart seemed to beat way harder than normal, i could feel it through my whole body and when i felt my chest i could feel my heart beat way more than ever, and i also had chest discomfort and anxiety, ever since then my heart seems to beat harder all the time, and after exercise it takes longer to calm down, i will also get random chest discomforts on certain days,my EKG, holter moniter, and event moniter results have came back normal, but months after that day at practice my heart continues to beat hard, and when i feel my friends hearts through their chests i can barely feel theirs beat,is there anything that could cause this change, because my heart never did that before.
