it could be Super Ventricular Tachycardia SVT or similar I had something like that had 3 procedures on heart to finally correct it all a heart echo and a stress test may be needed as it would not show up otherwise in the hospital it would do this at home when I quickly bent to get something that fell out of dryer or car keys hit the floor it was scary and getting it diagnosed was not easy I had to have my heart stopped and restarted too many times to count...you need a good Electro physiologist Cardiologist; they deal with irregular heartbeats etc. Good Luck

Hi i am 30 year old male who was hospitalized 3 months ago for atrial fib. Had the whole gambit of tests and all seemed ok. I was put on beta blockers then a heart monitor a month later for massive palpations and rapid beat. i was put on another med after to regulate heart rate. Now i still experience palpataions and i can feel when they are about to happen. also extreme fatigue and some weakness. What is the issue here? i do smoke but not massive smoker. I did gain 20 pounds since the hospital stay which i have never been able to do. Wonder what id happenin here.

Okay so I m a 15 year old girl and active with running( when it s cross country season but I m off right now) and on the skinny side weighing 95 pounds being 5 2 . I get these occasional (has happened about 8 or 9 times) heart discomfort so that when I breathe out kind of deeply there s a sharp pain near the bottom of my left lung near my heart. I think it has happened once or twice when I ate too much greasy food, when I laugh way too much, when I get over excited like when I played tennis the other day it occurred, and has randomly happened when I haven t done anything. These attacks last around 30mins to about a couple of hours. The worst case was when I still had it and went to bed and couldn t sleep on my left side because every time my heart beat there was once again a sharp pain but it was gone in the morning. I m just wondering if this could turn out to be a serious problem or just random chest pains that young people get. Please don t answer if u have no clue b/c it s a waste.

I have had breathing problems come up in the past month & 1/2 when doing much walking & small things. I have shortness of breath where I have to breath through my mouth to get enough air. I went to a heart Dr. & he said all sounds good then he had me go to a lung Dr. that now wants to have me do a sleep test. I only had about 5 of the sleep questions in minimal & that s only because I have a bad hip that wakes me up at night. I told her this but she still wants the sleep study. I want a second opinion, am I wrong ?

I had a heart attack a few months back and had an echogram taken which measures your valves and muscles and other parts of your heart. The results I received was that my heart is funcitoning at 25 percent at this time and my muscles are dead. I had 36 sessions of cardiac rehab also and if I walk a short distance I get shortness of breath also. Can I live a normal life with my heart at 25 percent and am I a high risk of living a short life. Thank you
