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

For the past 4 days, my blood pressure has been running anywhere from 130/95 to 120/102. My blood pressure is usually normal (typically 120/78 or so). I have high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease & am 51. What I don t understand is the numbers being close together. My last reading was 119/102.

I am a 44 year old male with a family history of hyperlipidemia and heart disease. My father had a AMI at age 50 and expired. His father expired at age 51 with an AMi. Both were sudden death. I had a Cardiac CTA yesterday which revealed a calcium score of 252. The report revealed a 70-80% blockage to the middle of the LAD with about 50% occlusion on both of the ends. Seeing a cardiologist tomorrow. What do you think the treatment will be for this?

I recently had an ECG after an abnormal EKG. The ECG showed vent. rate 108bpm Sinus tachycardia, PR interval 158 ms, possible left atrial enlargement, QRS duration 88 ms , nonspecific ST abnormality, QT/QTc 368/493 ms, abnormal ECG, P-R-T axes 70 48 58 and prolonged QT. The cardiologist didn t seem very concerned and felt the abnormality was because of the medication I was taking - remeron for sleeping; I suffer from chronic insomnia. I have been on this medication for over two years and have never had any side effects or problems with it. In the past three-four months, however, I have been experiencing chest pains, some severe which is why I went to my physician to get the first EKG which showed a fast heart beat and was referred to the cardiologist for an ECG, EKG and a stress test. I was only on the treadmill for maybe 4 1/3 minutes before I experienced SOB and chest pains. They repeated the ECG and I was told it was abnormal and to discuss my medications with my psychiatrist and that I had nothing to worry about. When I see abnormal ECG, EKG and am taking nitro tablets with a family history of heart disease (father COPD, CHF and angioplasty; grandfather died of a heart attack), I have a tendency not to believe the doctor. I have not even been contacted by my physician for a follow-up visit. Should I be concerned. Cancer also runs in my family; my father died of colon, liver CA and I am breast cancer survivor. I d appreciate your comments. Should I seek another opinion? Thanks, Mary Kopco YYYY@YYYY I am a 61 y.o. white female, 137 lbs w/ hx of cancer (bilateral mastectomy and hysterectomy for CA of uterus), osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, high cholesterol (328), allergic to any statin drugs, being treated with Zetia 10 mg 1 x/day. Presently taking nitro tabs for chest pain, oxybutityn for overactive bladder, clonazepam 1mg 3x/day for anxiety and depression. I look forward to your response. Thank you.
