I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

I get a small pain inside my chest. My heart starts to flutter repeatedly until I exhale.

do you think that you can help me with my heart ? i don t know what is wrong with it. this is serious ? I know that you cannot find a true diagnosis online, but i am still curious for what answers i will find, but anyways, i am postive that there is something really wrong with my heart, i am a girl, currently 13 and turning 14 next month.I am sort of scared now, for since the past 4 years, i have been having these symptons. I am not overweight if you are wondering, i am at a healthy weight for my age. Heres a couple of problems i have been having: 1) A couple of times each week, my heart skips a beat or stops for 2-3 seconds. I cannot breathe while this happens. 2) If i wake up in the middle of the night, my heartbeat is normal, but all of a sudden, it speeds up to about 110-115 beats per minute, then slows down to normal. 3) If I run for short or long times, sometimes I feel lightheaded.this occurence is rare though. 4)at certain times, I get a small pain inside my chest , feels where my heart is. 5)If at any time, I breathe in too fast, my heart starts to flutter repeatedly. until I exhale, it stops fluttering. As i mentioned before, I know that I cannot find a true diagnosis online, but only by having a doctor checkup, but if you will, could you list different things that could most likely be wrong with my heart? -Thank you all in advance.

Is this true; Hi All, read this:- 1 Let’s say it’s 7.25pm and you’re going home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job. 2 You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. 3 Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You are only about five km from the hospital nearest your home. 4 Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. 5 You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself. 6 HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE? Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. 7 However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. 8 Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital. 9 Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!! 10 A cardiologist says If everyone who gets this mail kindly sends it to 10 people, you can bet that we’ll save at least one life. 11 Rather than sending jokes, please..contribute by forwarding this mail which can save a person’s life…. 12 If this message comes around you ……more than once…..please don’t get irritated……U need to be happy that you are being reminded of how to tackle….Heart attacks….AGAIN… From: DR.N Sivakadakshm,                          (Senior Cardiologist)

Hello. I have been to the doctor several times. I have had a cough for over 2 months. It is way inside. it started with a pain in my ribs, but more like my lungs (my inards hurt). The doctor took a chest xray and it came out normal. They put me on hydrocodone because I was not sleeping. It did not help. Then I was put on Zpac. That did not work at all. So I went to a different doctor and she requested a CT scan to check for a blood clot. That came back normal. Now my lungs no longer hurt but my heart does. It hurts to cough, sneeze and take deep breathes. I also can t lift a whole lot or I get a sharp pain. I do cough up mucus (greenish white). I hate taking medicine and turned down taking a steroid. I have taken more medicine in two months than I have taken my entire life. I want to be back to normal. What is wrong? Please help.

What Dr. in Lubbock can we have and Echocadiagram done in the office? I have a 75 year old male with heart failure that the pulse ox machine says his heart rate is between 30 and 65 beats. The cardiologist says that his heart is beating 114 beats a min. It is just that the first beat is hard and the other 2-5 are a slight beat. Enough to pick up on the 12 lead but not enough to pick up in a pulse. His feet are swelling and when we elevatethem the swelling goes down after 48 hrs but his lungs fill. When his feet swell they up his Lasix to 60 mg but it does not work for 4-5 days. Then run run run. Where can we have an echo done in Clovis, NM or Lubbock Texas?
