Can something be wrong with my Heart ?

Yesterday, when I was sitting down on my chair and I was on the computer working on school things - My heart started to really heart. I put my hand on where my heart is and like when I pushed I felt a lot of pain and when I breathed it hurted too. I don t know how long the pain lasted , it lasted (i guess) for a little more than a couple of minutes. A few days before I felt a little pain in my heart. And, just a few seconds ago i can barely feel pain but I felt something and it lasted for 1 second. I dont want to make this into a big deal when it s nothing, but I m afraid something can be wrong - I don t think my heart would hurt for no reason.

I don't think it's your heart that's hurting. It is probably a muscle pull around the chest area.
Psychiatrist Dr. Alok Ranjan's  Response
IT SEEMS THERE IS STIFFNESS OF BACK AND FRONT MUSCLES,DUE TO PROLONGED SITTING POSTURE OR SITTING IN WRONG POSTURE,IF YOU HAVE NO EPISODE OF INJURY:
TAKE RACLOFEN TAB WITH 20 MG OF PREDNISOLINE FOR 3 DAY 2 TIMES A DAY,YOUR PROBLEM SHOULD RESOLVE.BUT ALWAYS SIT IN GOOD POSTURE AND NOT LONGER IN SAME POSTURE,WALK FOR 5 MIN OR STREACH YOUR HAND AT REGULAR INTERVAL.

Hello.welcome.You are having muscular pain around your left chest area.You can take anti inflammatory drugs like diclofenac 50 mg twice daily for 5 days.Any pain in chest area for less than 30 seconds can't be of heart origin.Good luck.

Since last night I ve been having these weird palpitations in my heart. There is a history of heart disease in my family, and many people close to me have suffered from heart attacks. I m only 21 so I don t think I m going to suddenly drop dead or anything like that.. But I don t know what this is. I was so worried last night that I went to the hospital but they didn t take me seriously in anyway, probably because of my age. I m not a hypocondriact or anything like that either!! I rarely if ever go to the DR, let alone the hospital, its just when it comes to my heart its something i take very serioulsy becoz of the family history. The nurse at the hospital told me its Probably normal But I don t see ANYTHING normal with your heart pulpitating every couple of minutes, and espcially if it lasts this long. Does anyone know what this is? And what should I do about it, no one seems to be taking this seriously enough to even check if there is a problem! Thanks in advance. :) Just to sum up exactly what it feels like... I can actually feel my heart beating, it feels heavy and it feels like its skipping a beat then its giving a big thump, and beating irregular, but this only lasts for a few seconds at a time. Thankyou to everyone for answering my question!!! :) I will definetly stop worrying as much and I ll go see my GP, hopefully he can spend some decent time with me, and if he thinks there is anything wrong then maybe I can be put on a monitor or something, my dad has had to do that many times. Thanks for all your advice I really appriciate it. :) I usually get these weird palpitations every few months, once or twice.. I always thought that was normal. But Never this much and all at once! Thats why I was worried! But thankyou all for taking me seriously. :) I will be making an appointment with my DR very soon!

For the past seven or so months my heart has been scaring me quite a bit. I have phases where for a couple of weeks around three times a day my heart starts beating stronger. I m not sure if it increases in speed but I get short of breath and every time it scares me. Last week though I had a very bed spell (I hadn t had one of these events in a couple of months). It felt as if though time had slowed down and I thought I might be having a heart attack. I was born prematurely though and had to have surgery to close a valve in my heart that hadn t automatically done so when I was born. It changes the direction of blood flow through your heart or something like that. Do you think this could be linked to my previous surgery? Also I am a vegetarian however I do eat fish and lots of it.

I am writing about my 14 year old son, who has been ill repeatedly 4 times for the past 7 weeks. He s been on antibiotics all 4 times, struggles to recover until his antibiotics are nearly gone, finally feels better for a few days and then gets it again. We are wondering if it is valley fever. Can that come with congestion/sinus symptoms? He s been diagnosed with sinus infections each time, but develops not only significant congestion/sinus symtpoms, but also chest pain, horrible coughing, fatigue, sore throat, and is miserable. He has faithfully taken not only strong antibiotics, but prescription strength cough syrup/decongestant, Flonase nasal spray, Zyrtec once a day, and breathing treatments up to 4 times a day, along with vitamin C and lots of fluids. He is otherwise very healthy, but his doctor is concerned that perhaps it is not really sinus infections he has had. I cannot find on the internet where there is a connection between congestion/sinus symptoms and Valley Fever - curious about that as others have asked if he has been tested for it. We live in Phoenix. As a young child he had repeated ear infections, but 4 years ago at age 10 he had his tonsils and adenoids removed, tubes in his ears, and a major sinus surgery. He has been very healthy ever since until now. Any ideas? Thank you verey much!

I had a legion on my face and after a month it began to cause me chest pain that increased as the sore grew. I was concerned about the chest pain and its size so i went to a clinic. i thought it was a spider bite. he said it clearly wasn t so gave me an ointment for acne. he told me the sore had absolutely nothing to do with my chest pain. I took the ointment for 3 weeks and the chest pain and sore grew. By then i knew it was causing me pain the got more severe. I went to the hospital 3 weeks later and he also told my it wasn t causing chest pain. he gave me a antibiotic for infection and when i was a week into the bottle a pain ripped through my chest which didn t last just one second, but about 3 or 4. When it happened i thought i was having a heart attack. i went home and lanced it myself, which they didn t offer to do. it grew outward in a circle and was slightly smaller than a quarter. not far above the skin, it grew deep into my cheek. it took a week to fight the infection out. the pain subsided from a 8 and some intense 10 to about a 3 with occasional 10 stabbings. its comes and goes throughout the day. I didn t get blood test for the sore from either doctor. now the sore is gone but over the past 2 years ive been to the doctor for my chest pain and they have taken blood samples related to checking my heart. i havent told them about that infection because those first 2 doctors said the sore wasn t causing the pain, but how would they know since they never took a blood test. i know it caused the pain then and the aftermath now. Should i tell the heart doctor about the infection? Will he shrug me off like the other 2? and is it possible the infection is still there or gone but damaged something? what was the infection?

My name is Jennifer. I am a 41 year old female, 5 9 , 125 LB. Over the past 10 years I have had symptoms of arrhythmias , chest pain, breathing problems (inability to breath deeply), coughing and severe hoarseness usually coinciding with the other problems. It seems to be getting slowly worse as I get older. I sleep sitting up. If I lay down I risk waking up with significant chest pain, choking and arrhythmias. I tried to get a diagnosis in my 30 s but no one found the source of my problem before I lost my insurance and stopped pursuing it. I recently went to a chiropractor and had x-rays taken. There is significant compression and misalignment between C3 and C4. There is also some arthritic changes between these vertebrae. I used to break horses when I was in my early 20 s and at one point directly fell on my head and was knocked out. I assume that is what caused this particular injury. My question is could this injury be causing the arrhythmias, chest pain, breathing problems and hoarseness? I know you can t answer with certainty I am just curious if it is a possibility. Thank you for your time, Jennifer
