Do I have anything wrong with my heart ?

For a while now, and I ve never gotten this checked out before, my heart does this thing where it speeds up slightly I guess. But it feels like its skipping beats (Yes I know that s impossible because Id be a walking heart attack ) but it s not painful it s just uncomfortable. But I know its abnormal. I just don t know if I have a heart murmur or what? I can t explain what it is or what happens I just know its uncomfortable and I just try not to move when it happens so it ll pass. Any suggestions as to what this could possibly be? I m dying? You re original.

Just got a leaflet through the door telling all the symtoms of a heart attack , it says don t mess about waiting just call the emergency services. Now, I have those symtoms everyday, I also have high b.p. (last checked 120/170 only last week). Am I having heart attacks? Sorry, numbers wrong way round. Feel it like most days but thougt a heart attack was going to be of hollywood proportions, this leaflet describes what I feel.

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'm 63 years old, 150 pounds and have a slow irregular heart beat. Sometimes it is more irregular than other times. When the heart skips a beat it feels like a flutter. After exercise it is especially irregular. I also have a very mild mitral valve prolapse that doesn't cause a murmur.
