Your Diastolic is a little high, but not dangerously high. Your Systolic could be a little lower (thats the higher number) but again, not anything life threatening.

I have lost 55 pounds since March of this year. I weigh 228 pounds now. For the past 2 weeks, I have had heart palpitations. I started having Employee health record my BP. I have always had a normal bp of 120/80. Recently, it s been low for me. For example, today it was 110/69 and my pulse was 58. I have no other symptoms/problems other than the palpitations/hesitation. My physical is scheduled for a week from today. Should I try to get in earlier to see a doctor or should I just continue monitoring my bp/pulse until next Friday? I m scared to do the wrong thing, but I don t want to panic either. Thank you for your help.

Certainly as long as it doesn t cost me anything! I have been feeling very sleepy and lethargic with heart palpatations and a feeling that my head is going to blow off. Almost like a pressure as if someone is choking my neck if you will type pressure especially while lying down. I take bp meds and I don t always do that in a timely way. I have nodules on my thyroid and wonder if that is the problem. Seems I m just problem-matic in my older age??? I am 58, I feel great other than these symptoms that are now starting to bother me. Oh...I also have had a partial Hysterectomy...one overy? Thank you. Hope you can answer.

Hi, My age is 30 yrs, height 6-10 , wt 62 kg, I have palpitation for the last 12 yrs. I do not even sleep on left side because of the vibrations I feel. I am using tobacco in the form naswar for the last 15 yrs. I had been advised Inderal 12 yrs back for a months. But some 5 months back my BP also increased to 135/95. I did all the tests related to thyroid, kidneys, ECG, Trophinin T, etc. All these are normal. Doctor advised to take Inderal for 3 months but after 3 months I had the some problem. But now I have quit naswar and feeling well, that is no palpitation since then. You plz tell me that is tobacco is responsible for my palpitation and hypertension. Thanks

I had a herpetic whitlow - sp? which caused lymphangitis, or red streaking up my hand and arm - about the same time, my heart started beating irregularly and I went on a 7 day course of Keflex. While on the Keflex, my heart was fine. The minute I went off the Keflex, the palpitations came back. I ve worn a heart monitor and was told that 2% of my heartbeats are extra but what I feel is that there is some sort of infection at play here even though my bloodwork has come back normal. Thoughts?

For the past two days I have been feeling ike I have heart palpitations or an out of control spasm or twitch in my chest area. I went to hospital but the tests revealed that I was okay in terms of heart beat and blood pressure. The doctor also said that what I was feeling didn t match my heart beat. In other words my heart beat was normal and was not going fast like I thought I was feeling. Now the fluttering or twitches has settled but are there slightly and when I get up to do the most simplest tasks I become tired. I have been sleeping most of the day and can not go to work. There is no pain in my chest either. My eyes feel tired too. I do remember that the night before I got this feeling I was trying to sleep and I could see flashes of light even though it was dark. I don t have headaches or feel like vomtiting either. These are some of the questions the doctors have asked me but they have not been able to give me an answer or any suggestions as to what is going on. Could you help?

Hello.. I am a 35 year old female and I have been noticing my heart is skipping every 5th to 8th beat. This is something that started all of a sudden. I do suffer from anxiety disorder and I do take medications daily for this. I drink plenty of water and exercise. I also drink at least 1 cup of coffee per day. I recently was put on a 24 hour holter monitor and the recording did show some palpitations. Since I had the monitor this has been occurring through the entire day. They don t stop. What should I do from here?

I am 16 years old girl and already a few days my heart palpitations. Do not get stressed, do not drink any alcohol, not smoke. This may indicate a heart pounding heart disease? In the four years I was sent to the├┐ echocardiography without cardiac problems only preventive pediatrician that due to my hydrocephalus exclude hypoplastic heart syndrome. This syndrome was excluded by echocardiography. If these my current heart problems (palpitations at rest) meant something more serious, followed by heart surgery? So what would it be? Heart disease? If it was this, what is the treatment?
