I feel stress in my chest. My pulse rate 60-65. Is it OK?

My heart rate is slow and the doctor said that with some people 60-65 pulse rate is normal. But I feel stress in my chest, especially if I pick up something heavy, I'm short of breath at times and most of all I don't feel well. I have had the electric cardo gram and that where I got the 60-65 heart rate. Next month i'm going for the stress test. I feel there is something defentely going on with my heart, I'm not the type to make something out of nothing, plus I don't feel well. Do you think there could be more going on with my heart.

Dear sirs, i m 30 years old male, and i was having high pulse rate ( sinus tachycardia ) , which was mainly caused by stress and anexiety My pulse at home was in the range of 90 - 100 bpm , but in the doctor clinic it goes up to 120 Bpm as i feel versy stressed at doctors clinic. so i did full check up on heart , and the Holter moniter showed a blood pressure average 130 - 80 and pulse rate 94 bpm the doctor told me that the heart is fine and valves are ok , but he prescrived me a beta blocker to calm the heart down: half pill of Nebivolol 5 mg,and after i used the medication the pulse became in the range 70 - 80 bpm and i play regular sports and i feel i have bettter energy The problem is that although my pulse is normal , but still till now when I go to doctors it goes up to 110 bpm , but once I leave the doctor office its back to normal. Does my case require surgical intervention ?? or beta blocker is enough? And when does surgery would be needed Thanks a lot for your help and support . Best regards, Sherif el kaissy

Hello! I have problems with stress and anxiety. My heart is beating very irregulery, it misses beats and feel fluttery in my chest. Sometimes I get dizzy and at night when I feel my pulse I can feel it stoping for a few seconds before it starts beating normally again. I have had han 24 hour ECG and loads of blood test. They all showed normal. Should I trust the doctors on not testing my further? I m afraid they didn t catch my episodes on the test. I am a 20 year old girl. 170 cm and 73 kg. I am swedish so I might write in a bit of a strange way.

I have had breathing problems come up in the past month & 1/2 when doing much walking & small things. I have shortness of breath where I have to breath through my mouth to get enough air. I went to a heart Dr. & he said all sounds good then he had me go to a lung Dr. that now wants to have me do a sleep test. I only had about 5 of the sleep questions in minimal & that s only because I have a bad hip that wakes me up at night. I told her this but she still wants the sleep study. I want a second opinion, am I wrong ?

I had a heart attack a few months back and had an echogram taken which measures your valves and muscles and other parts of your heart. The results I received was that my heart is funcitoning at 25 percent at this time and my muscles are dead. I had 36 sessions of cardiac rehab also and if I walk a short distance I get shortness of breath also. Can I live a normal life with my heart at 25 percent and am I a high risk of living a short life. Thank you
