Heart beating fast and feeling sick. Is this a disease ?

Iv been Fighting the flu for about 3-5 days now.Im starting to get better. However In the mornings and sometimes during the day if i over do myself my heart rate will rise a little bit and it causes me to feel like im going to throw up.. is this due to something from me being sick? I also take Thyroid meds but just started taking them again a day ago since i wasn t able to when i was sick. Im going to be 27 in 9 days and i weight 259 pounds. Was 270 but lost 11 due to being sick.

Hey:) im 15 years old, female - im not overweight, i m about 5ft 4 - a little unfit but i ve never been the sporty type and this is very recent - my heart s been going all crazy in the past week or so - i first noticed it last friday. It felt kinda like adrenaline - i was just sitting there - nothing had happened to make me scared and i hadn t been running or anything - it doesn t hurt when my heart does this - it may not even b my heart ,sometimes it feels a little more to the left, like a lung or something - it ll just start going all fast and beating really hard for a couple of seconds. It s really scary. I get lightheaded a lot and im tired all the time (i ve been like that for a couple of years) and sometimes get sick when i m on my period - it s really freaking me out - hope you can help!! Thanks:)

My soon to be 7 yr old daughter complains of a sore heart in the morning when she wakes up- when she gets up in morning says her heart beats fast and she seems a little out of breath. She also has had a few episodes of what I think is heart burn because she will tell me that she has thrown up in her mouth, although it doesn t burn...can these two symptoms be related? Her father and I are very healthy and there is no heart disease in the family...thanks, angie

I have been experiencing this type of hair loss for 9 months now. Blood tests for Iron deficiency and thyroid are normal. I have undergone treatment from a dermatologist which included monthly visits for Kenalog injections and use Clobetesal nightly. I did not have an appointment this month as the thought was it may be my last affected area. Now I have 5 bald patches ranging in size from a nickel to half-dollar. It is thought that it is due to emotional stress as my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer last January and these spots started to appear the following March. My husband is undergoing chemo with little to not side effects and the treatment will add years to his life, so one would think I would no longer be stressed, I am grateful for that. I just don't know why these are still appearing and should I consider another method of treatment. I plan to schedule another appointment with my dermatologist and I am not sure what to ask for. Could you give me some alternative choices that I may be able to ask him about? I appreciate you being there. Thank you. Claudia Crowe
