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 a 35 year old male, non-smoker, non-drinker, not overweight, and in pretty good shape healthwise. A year ago I had way too much caffeine after being off of it for several months, and my heart rate and blood pressure skyrocketed. Since then, I have had continuous (daily) discomfort on the far left side of my chest, close to the armpit. Sometimes it radiates around the left nipple, then goes away. It is not painful, just annoying. I do not have trouble breathing. I have gone to a cardiologist and had MRI, EKG, ECG, treadmill, x-rays, and bloodwork done. All are negative for cardiac. Any idea what might cause this? I am leaning toward anxiety of some kind, though I have never been diagnosed with anxiety.

have been having episodes of hypertension and cardiac pain. I spent Tuesday night in the ER getting blood work done, including a hs-CRP test which came back elevated at 7.4 mg/dL. I had a troponin test done that came back as slightly elevated (0.9 ng/mL). I also had an EKG which showed tachycardia (resting heart rate up into the 160s) as well as episodes of a-fib, and an echocardiogram which showed my left atrium was significantly thickened/larger than expected for a normal twenty year old. I was admitted to the cardiac unit over night for observation and given nitroglycerin for the pain as well as medication for my blood pressure. The blood pressure levels regulated somewhat, going down to average of 138/95 at discharge. They gave me a preliminary diagnosis of angina which is shocking since I m 20, of normal weight, have a healthy diet, and normal cholesterol. I ve been referred to a cardiologist and am scheduled for a stress test on Monday. What should I expect? What will the stress test show? Also, what does a enlarged left atrium mean? Is it serious? thanks!
