Thanks for the query

Yes emotions does affect heart beat.
Emotions triggers the SA node to send more signals to the heart muscles thus increasing the heart rate.

What kind of medication would you recommend to help a person with heart irregularity? A person I am talking about has a problem of irregular heart beating. The pulse is quite strong, but there is a strong uneveness of the time between the beats (because of which the heart stabilizer was installed and used). After its installation the pulse became less strong and quite even, but the strenghth of pulse became a little uneven. My question is: what kind of medication, if any would you recommend to improve functioning of the heart? Thanks very much in advance! There were conduction problems, which were leading to irregularities I mentioned above. This person had emotional shocks in the past, which had caused heart abnormalities. This person suspectedly had several heart attacks, one of which led to a clinical death. When this happened, this person was reanimated (10 minutes after the heart stopped). When I talk about improving functioning of the heart , I mean optimization of its work so that person feels good. The installed pacemaker is an atrioventricular one. The person suffers from the pace slowering.

I have a learning disability due to high fevers as an infant. I was told that the hippocampus in my brain was damaged, and it makes it hard for me to remember things. Also, I was told that due to my urethra being narrow and not being able to pass urine caused me to have high fevers as an infant, Along with middle ear infections. Apparently I had it all. My question is, other than having to work harder in school to get the grades I need to pass, is there another way to make things a little easier for me to learn, and retain information? I will be 51 in two weeks, so im sure my age may have some thing to do with memory as well.

I have a persistent hunger feeling that hardly goes away, however, I have lost my appetite, so I never feel like eating. I used to be able to eat anything whenever I was hungry and in a few hours, eat again and feel normal and full and satisfied. Now, I force myself to eat even if I don't feel like it because I know to be healthy I must. Even when I eat enough food that would normally make me feel full, within 15-20 mintues, I feel a nagging, burning hunger feeling again. Sometimes food is even difficult to eat because my stomach begins to feel uneasy and unsettled. What can cause this? Also, I have never had these issues before until the last couple months.
