It depends on several factors. There are several conditions that he could have. Also, it depends on his age. It can be normal for "young" people have arrhythmia's. They can correct themselves as one gets older. Was he prescribed any medication? Supra Ventricular Tachycardia can happen, but usually after a short period of time, a person becomes very uncomfortable. SVT is 150 bpm or greater. Find out more and let me know. If his doctor is aware, then probably there is no reason for concern.

My fiance has been having some concerning problems, he says his heart feels like it beats out of his chest and beats real fast and 10 seconds later it s back to normal. He s also having headaches every day and he gets them twice in a day, along with bloody nose and they last for 10 to 45 minutes. Is this anything to worry about or to go to the hospital for? Thank you

Hello Dr, 41 year old, non-smoker, 1-5 units of alcohol a week, active, no other health issues. Family history of heart problems (Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ), have been checked and do not have it, although have a slight thickening of arterial knuckle which gets monitored. I m getting what feels like pulses or faint flutters from my oesophagus region to the top of my sternum region, these symptoms are infrequent during the day to sometimes non-existent, but at night the symptoms only occur when laid on my back or on my left side (they disappear when I m lying on my right side?) and feel more constant with a heart beat ie pulses at a constant rate. Occasionally have slight breathlessness since this has started 1 week ago. Now I ve had a slight upset stomach (although not constipated I ve not been regular) the last week and the symptoms do seem to be more present when I have heavy feeling in my stomach and then subside once I pass wind. Is the pulses/flutter linked to this and could be a blockage and wind not escaping? Or something else?

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
