I am really worried about my heart

I haven t had any other symptoms other than minor chest pain , I m a fit 15 year old male, I ve gone to my family doctor and he says I m fine, Yet I just want to be sure, Is my family doctor correct in stating that I have no heart problems? No ECG , He just checked my pulse and blood pressure . Actually, I m really worried since I m afraid I might just fall over and die, You know, Sudden Death Syndrome... There isn t much of a chance of that happening to me is there?

Hi I have had a holter ecg done and my average heart rate was 111 with the highest 180 and the lowest 60. I am very tired and feel as if I am trembling the whole time. I get breathless very easily and feel very emotional. The ecg was not normal but my GP merely said that I had a few extra beats. Should I be worried?

I have been on Coumadin for 3 years. In December of 2013 I had a complete knee replacement and the surgeon put me on Xarelto. I want to go back on Coumadin because I feel more confident if I know the numbers of how thin/thick my blood is each month. Can I switch back to Coumadin (Warfarin) without any bad side effects? I do have a pacemaker and also have occasional episodes of atrial fib.

I m a 47 year old caucasion female with no cardiac history from my parents or myself. I booked myself in for an elective surgery and had blood work and ECG done. The surgeon has operated on me before (2 years ago) and when he compared the ECG s he said there was a slight change. I was in much better cardio shape 2 years ago than I am now. Could this cause the slight changes he s talking about?
