Hi i am 30 year old male who was hospitalized 3 months ago for atrial fib. Had the whole gambit of tests and all seemed ok. I was put on beta blockers then a heart monitor a month later for massive palpations and rapid beat. i was put on another med after to regulate heart rate. Now i still experience palpataions and i can feel when they are about to happen. also extreme fatigue and some weakness. What is the issue here? i do smoke but not massive smoker. I did gain 20 pounds since the hospital stay which i have never been able to do. Wonder what id happenin here.

I was dignosed with heat palpitations. I was drinking 8-10 cans of Pepsi per day. I immediatly cut out caffein entirly. I was smoking up to two packs per day and am now down to 3-6 cigs per day. I only drink ocasionally, maybe 6 beers per month. I am sceduled for a stress test while being monitored this coming tuesday. I do not get much exercize and I sit alot at the computer. I have noticed that the palpitations are more frequent after being awake for a few hours or after I eat. I had surgery on my neck a while back. When doing the following MRI, I was told by the person who read it that a metalic foreign object was left in the surgical area, and looked like the tip of a needle. I was later xrayed and the DR who read it said it was cartilage. I was told before that last diagnosis, of it being cartilage, that if that object migrated it could possibly kill me and wouldn t be operable. I am still having palpitations (missed heartbeats) even after the drastic reduction of Caffeine and smoking. I did mention the object in my neck and the Dr said it was unlikly the problem because it is not continuoious. I m wondering if that is true?

I am 16 years old 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 ? Thanks

I m Patty, i m 17, turning 18 about 107 pounds and i have asthma and heart murmurs, though the cardiologist said 2 years ago my heart murmurs shouldn t disrupt me because it s not too serious. Just yesterday and up to today, i felt something on my chest. i felt pressure on my chest as i exhaled and it comes and goes. my dad thought i should sleep it off since i had a head ache, so i did. when i woke up this morning, everything was fine but around 2pm today, i started feeling it again. Is this serious? Do any of you know what it is?

My 14 yr. old is having extreme burping, we have been to the ER and got no results. She was previously diagnosed with a Lyles Heart murmur or musical murmur. She is 5 9 , 138 pounds, active with basketball and dance. She complains of lightheadedness, chest pain in upper left quadrant, left arm pain and she says she feels like her heart is racing at random times. She can t inhale or exhale deeply without burps, and they are constant and persistant. She has had a normal sonogram of the liver, kidneys, gall bladder. Do you have any suggestions? We are frustrated. In the ER she had low potassium and low BUN, she has also been diagnosed with chillblains on the fingers and toes, negative antigen test for Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis.
