I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Do they make you feel breathless and enable you to do exercise ?

I'll be fine then my heart will pause and then do a loud beat and then race for a while. I cant do anything to physical as i just get so out of breath and im not unfit i walk over 4miles a day to and from college and i walk and run with my dogs as well as competing in agility. My resting heart rate averages at 103bpm and the irregular heart rate keeps me up at night. I went to the doctor and had a blood test, the results came back normal. I haven't got a heart murmur and im going for an ECG next week and being referred to a cardiologist and a pediatrician. But that isn't until a few weeks. But its here with me now! i have to get the bus to college and my dogs walks have turned into me struggling up to the field and standing there whilst they run around or look at me blankly. I dnt drink caffeine, i dnt smoke, drink much alcohol or take drugs. Does anybody have a clue what could be wrong?!? the doctor mentioned palpatations but she is unsure whether that it is. Do they make you feel breatless and inable you to do exercise? Im not on any medication saturated fat???/ I eat fish, salad and vegitables..oh and natural yoghurt. I dnt think thats the problem Im normally fit and active

Wow! A resting heart rate of 103! That is high. Normal is 60 to 90. I'd ask to be tested for thyroid disease. Hyperthyroidism symptoms: Irritability, anxiety, muscle weakness, breathlessness, palpitations, warm moist skin, evidence of weight loss or gain, increased appetite, heat intolerance, increased sweating, increased thirst, full pulse, tachycardia (over 90), systolic hypertension (upper number is high when blood pressure taken), frequent stools or diarrhea, eye complaints, swelling of the outer portion of the shins, swollen fingers. Even though your doctors have declared that your blood work is normal, you need to ask for copies and keep a record of them. Your blood tests may be high normal or low normal. Tests needed to diagnosis Thyroid disease: Free T3, Free T4, and TSH You can also have tachycardia, palpitations, and breathlessness with hypothyroidism. And your symptoms could point to another condition as well as thyroid disease or something other than thyroid disease.

I am a 50 year old male. I am 5 foot 10 and weigh 190 pounds and so a bit overweight . I walk about 3-4 miles a day and work on the 4th floor. I never use the lift. I used to do cardio work outs at home until i had a tendon injury and got out of the habit. About ten days ago I started again on my cross trainer. I have upped my water consumption to about 4-5 pints a day. My blood pressure is usually about 118/70 with a resting heart rate of about 76. When I exercise I usually go at it quite hard, music on and I get myself to mildly breathless but I sweat a lot (always have). 2 minutes after getting off the machine my blood pressure might be down around 80/60. I don t feel too bad, a little shaky maybe. It is now 10 hours since I had my last 90 minute bash on the machine and my BP is still only 108/66. Is it usual for BP to really drop like this during exercise?

I am having constant thudding heartbeats with irregular or skipped beats.
This has been going on for the last five hours . I can't sleep. It has been bad for the last two days but not constant as it is now . I'm worried. I can't fall asleep . I seem to lurch awake even as I drift off with another powerful rushing feeling of thudding in my chest and more skipped beats.
I have been complaining to my doctor for 12 years of irregular beats. I have had several ECG and scans and they always tell me there's nothing wrong with the functioning of my heart but I can't ignore these symptoms that don't go away. I believe my stressing over them makes them worse but it's a vicious circle. I am meant to be on Citalopram but took one tablet and woke up in the middle of the night clenching my jaw with skipping beats . Looking up the side effects/contra indications it says should not take if suffer any heart rhythms problems. Why is my doctor giving me these ? So I daren't take them for fear of making things worse but I do need an anxiolytic as prescribed.

Hello, my 13-year-old son has been having a very rapid heartbeat in the past 3 days: 130-147. It is possible that he has been having this problem for a long time and we have not notice. He exercise a lot and even lifts (as much as his own body weigh). Also he is a vegetarian, so we suspect that he may be anemic. We discovered this problem 3 days ago during a preventive check-up. His heartbeat was 120 and the doctor said that his EKG was ok, so that it was probably just caused by his emotional distress. Yet we have measured his heartbeat in the past 3 days at home about 8 times and it is never lower than 130 and never higher than 147. He feels okay subjectively. He runs up and down the stairs as an exercise every day and has no trouble breathing. He has increased his body weight (especially muscles) in the past year. We are traveling right now but we do plan to see his pediatrician. I am just very nervous and would like to know whether it is an emergency or whether this can wait for a week or two. Thank you.

Hi:) I am 19 years old girl-normal weight going to thin. Non-smoker,non-drinker,never used drugs.
My problem is the fast heart rate. I get tired so easily. Mine heart rate in rest is ussually normal min 70 max 90. But problem is when i am standing up-it start to jump and raise up the tahycardia to 150. Then i feel fatique and dizziness,weakness in legs and arms. Even i can't walk anymore,it beats so fast so i lost my breathe and i need to sit. After sit it gets calm for 5 min.
I did all blood analizys and they all came back normal. I checked heart with ecg,holter monitor and echo,and doctors here said that everything is ok with heart. Another thing is my bp which is 90/60 generally. Isn't it wired to have low bp and high hr?
I am in big worry and i ask for help as soon as it is possible:)

I have been having what my doctor has called palpitations for the past month, i.e. my heart has been racing unpleasantly. She suggested thyroid or anameia and I have had blood tests, am awaiting the results. Also I had an ECG which is said to show nothing untoward. I am 66 years old and female and I am concerned about the experience of heart racing. I feel as if I am anxious, frightened, and yet I know I'm not. Sometimes these effects last over half an hour, and sometimes eating sweet things sets it off.
