I am suffering from an irregular heart beat but all of my reports are perfect

I have heart and fatigue issues. Any thoughts? Or email me!? I m tired all the time. My heart rate goes up for no reason; anytime, all day or not with pain that I can only describe as a vice grip around my heart (think The Frighteners w/ Michael J Fox). I ve been to cardiologist that say it s caffeine , which I don t do much of (1/2 cup of decaf coffee every other day before a month ago and none for that last month). Doctors’ say I m paranoid b/c I am so young, that I have nothing to worry about. My mother died of cardio- pulmonary hypertension when she was 21. I am 26. I do not think it’s that, Not even that my health in danger. I just want to know what it may be. They listen to my heart or run me on a treadmill and if I don t die; they say you re fine. This can t be normal. My blood pressure is always about the same, actually low for my size, but they say that is normal for me. This has been since I was 12, I am still pretty active. I drink lots of water, back then that was all I drank. My thyroid is fine according to tests.

First of all, be a good consumer of healthcare, don't accept answers that tell you it's nothing. You have lived in your body longer than anyone else so don't let them bully you if they don't have answers. A heart cath will tell you if you have blockages. If pulmonary hypertension runs in your family, a heart cath or echo-cardiogram will give you some more clues. Sometimes fatigue is due to de-conditioning. How active are you? How many METs were you able to achieve on the treadmill tests. Have you worn a 24 hour event monitor? Do you have panic attacks? Sometimes an EP study will show abnormal heart rhythms. EP means electrophysiology--a test where they evaluate your electrical conduction system in your heart. Don't let them tell you that you are young and there's nothing wrong. Unfortunately, sometimes, modern medicine thinks that only old people get sick. Good Luck and feel free to email me if you have any more questions.

I have pvc s and pac s and have have several ekg s- all normal, an echo that was perfect and am currently on an event monitor. My questions is yesterday I felt a skipped beat followed by 4 fast beats, then another skip and 4 fast beats and another skip, then it went back to normal. Should I be concerned with this? I ve only ever felt one skipped beat at a time. I didnt have my monitor on so I didn t catch it. I m really concerned. Please help

Good evening. I suffer from irregular heart beats especially during the evening. I really annoys me. It s been some 30 years since I had the very first episode. I usually feel them for a day or two and I feel better afterwards. But lately say mid January I feel them almost everyday. I do not know if it carries risks but I am very very concerned. Any help please?

Hello Dr, 41 year old, non-smoker, 1-5 units of alcohol a week, active, no other health issues. Family history of heart problems (Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ), have been checked and do not have it, although have a slight thickening of arterial knuckle which gets monitored. I m getting what feels like pulses or faint flutters from my oesophagus region to the top of my sternum region, these symptoms are infrequent during the day to sometimes non-existent, but at night the symptoms only occur when laid on my back or on my left side (they disappear when I m lying on my right side?) and feel more constant with a heart beat ie pulses at a constant rate. Occasionally have slight breathlessness since this has started 1 week ago. Now I ve had a slight upset stomach (although not constipated I ve not been regular) the last week and the symptoms do seem to be more present when I have heavy feeling in my stomach and then subside once I pass wind. Is the pulses/flutter linked to this and could be a blockage and wind not escaping? Or something else?

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.
