Every now and then I get these strong and I guess irregular heatbeats. I ve had this problem for years, but it only happens occasionally. It doesn t hurt or pain me at all. It just feels strange. I went to the doctor a while back and they found nothing wrong with my heart, though nothing indepth was done. All they did was look at it and tell me everything looked fine. Any serious input is greatly appreciated.
My father was checked into the hospital thirty minutes ago. For days he had been complaining of heartburn and pressure on his chest . Some of the symptoms he described have been diziness, a leadened feeling in his right arm, difficulty breathing etc. So while my mother goes to the hospital to pick him up, I d like to know if this sounds like heart problems. I mean, he s only thirty-nine years old. My family DOES have a history of heart problems, but not until a much later age. The docs in the ER say that they can t find anything irregular with him, even though the symptoms all still persist. Until they can do bloodwork, they say, they can t be sure. Does this sound like a mild heart attack , or is it just me ?
