I would seek medical attention, if you are having trouble with your pulse and heart and pains in your chest .

I had a weird experience, i was sitting on my couch and out of no where i felt my heart move in my chest and i could see it beating but it only lasted about 30 secs, does this sound like a flutter? I am 24 yrs old and i have had heart palpatations before due to a low pottasium level caused by a water pill but i am now off potassium pills and my levels are normal now and i havent had another palpatation since but this weird feeling tonight had me concerned. I also suffer from extreme anxiety so maybe im just worrying over nothing

I m sixteen years old. and about a year ago, this thing happened to me that was so wierd. I was sitting down, with a couple of friends when my heart started racing as though i just ran a mile! like it was beating super fast. it lasted about maybe less than a minute. That was the first time i experienced it. After that Ill get it sometimes out of the blue, usually when I laugh, then my heart just starts going. I panic, and probably that just makes it beat faster but idk, i dont feel dizzy, or anything. theres no pain. i just put my hand to my heart and its beatingggg suppeerrrr fastt. im scared. its happened about 5 times already? in about a year or a lil more. But sometimes ill hold my breath and then my heart rate goes back to its normal way, doesnt always work tho. Any idea what it might be???

I am 41 and my Heart is Beating Out of time? What s Going On ? It is hard to explain. I am not in pain but my heart will beat weird. Almost feel like it is in a spasm. No pain, in fact I feel a little light headed and almost drunk when it is happening. I am not afraid of dying so I guess this is more interesting than anything else. Am I going to drop dead here in a few days or is this just nothing to worry about? No Joke. This is really odd. Oh and I am completely out of breath just walking DOWN the stairs, up the stairs is almost too much to do. Came on in the last 3 weeks. Not all the time but a lot when I lay down at night. Thank You for all the suggestions to go to the doctor but I don t have insurance and in the USA if you don t have insurance you can not go to the hospital to get help. Like I said, I have already decide I am not scared to die cause I have lived a really great life. I am not Joking, I really am having these problems and I really can not get any medical care because I don t have insurance. So much for the great United States Heath care. My fault for not keep up my insurance.

I am 27 years old 5'5'' and weigh 225 17 weeks pregnant and have had previous heart surgery to correct a genetic heart defect known as hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. I have been having heart palpitations sometimes 4-5 times a day the past few weeks so my cardiologist had me do a holter moniter. my question is can a holter cause a false quickening?

I m caring for my mother who has been diagnosed with CHF. They state that she is only using 16% of her heart. She is having episodes of extreme heat coupled with SOB and heart palpitations. We ve been treating with ice packs and increased 02, and tried some lorazepam, which she doesn t like to use because it makes her sleepy. She wants to know what causes these episodes and if Tylenol would help with the hot flash component of these episodes. Thank you!

how long does it take to develop left atrial abnormality?, which is what patient s initial evaluation EKG showed. do EKG, with other labwork, to determine any underlying medical issues. can it be caused by a low dose of elavil after only 1.5 weeks?, don t believe it to be the elavil but want to make sure secondary to its known cardiac side effects. patient also history of chronic pain and long history prescribed opiates for that pain, and long history of insomnia

My husband is 80 years old and has been diagnosed with congenial heart dease. His heart is only pumping half the speed of a normal heart beat. And now his lungs are filling with fluid. He also has Alzheimer's.
