You need to get it checked out. Could be something minor like caffeine induced palpitations, but it's always better to be safe than sorry. Get to the doctors get an ECG (which shows the conduction the heart) or an ultrasound. You could also have a valve issue within the heart, either way, have an MD take a look at you. Then you can have a peace of mind or have the option of getting treatment if it's something to be concerned about. Best wishes!

hi I have been lightheaded for a two days now. My heart rythem is not normal when I lay down. A weird pressure in my throat and head and I feel light headed and dizzy. I didnt feel so bad this morning but after drinking coffee and eating a small bowl of cereal the symptoms are stronger. Not so bad to faint, but bad enough to know something is wrong. I am noticing some pressure in my upper abdomen. I am home alone with no car today and a three year old and am starting to wonder if i need to go to the hospital

Everytime I stand up from a seated postion or sit up from a lying postion I get dizzy and my blood pressure drops. I went to a cardiologist who put a 24 hour halter monitor on me and it showed when I have these episodes I have an extra heart beat. The cardiologist more or less said I was a fainting goat and he didn t want to see me again. What I want to know is, could this cause serious problems for me, should I talk to another doctor, or am I a fainting goat ? I m a 24 year old female. I exercise six days a week, drink 64 oz. of water a day, and I eat several small meals a day. When I exercise, my heart rate goes from 74 bpm to 225 bpm in less than five minutes, I get short of breath, and my chest and left arm begin to hurt. What s going on? Someone please shed some light on this for me.

Hi there I am a 44 year old lady I smoke and drink occasionally. My problem is I ve been having chest pains today which is quite worrying the back of my neck is sore when I pull it down to my neck. I took my blood pressure earlier as I m feeling dizzy and it was 147/90 and pulse 111 and that was resting. My body is cold to touch. I m asking what it could be as my dad had a heart attack a few years back and I lost my mom 4 months ago to a heart attack

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.
