I get like a prominent heart beat that lasts about 1-3 seconds

Every now and again (say once to twice a day), I get like a prominent heart beat that lasts about 1-3 seconds. It s hard to describe really, but it s like I notice my heart beat just for that time only and then it gets back to normal again. Any ideas, please?

Thanks for query,
you have not mentioned your age.

Hi Dr. Rynne, last mon 10/13 I had a vaginal ultrasound done which they believed I would have been 7weeks pregnant since my 1st day of my last period was Aug 20, 2014. They were able to see the yolk sac and possibly an embryo, but not certain. They could not hear the heartbeat. Based on the 2 plus cm, they said I was about 6 wks & 3 days. The Dr suggested a blood test on 10/13..then I got another one done on Wed 10/15. Result confirmed my HCG level dropped from mon 10/13 = 14,800 vs Wed 10/15 = 13,000. He said most likely I have a miscarriage. I will go back on next mon 10/26 for another ultrasound. Any thoughts/recommendation on my case? Please advise. Thank you very much, Jessica

My uncle has just had his 2nd triple bypass and on his 2nd day of recovery he went into cardiac arrest twice! the firs time he lost o2 for 10 mins, they have him resting now for 24 hours. He is stable at this time but his echo showed changes with an ef of 50% to an ef of 25%. I was wondering what were the chances of his ef increasing and how could we make that happen?

Dear Doctor, In May 2011, this happened with me for the first time when I was not at home and was away for work. I was asleep and at night around 02:30 I started feeling uncomfortable in sleep. My eyes opened and I started feeling breathless. Also was feeling like I was about to lose consciousness. Luckily that day I had my colleague with me in the next room. I summoned his help. By that time I started sweating and my body was going cold. Suddenly my colleague gave me some sugar and a glass of water. After taking water and sugar I started gaining consciousness. Immediately within 30 seconds, I felt loose motion. I toilet I also vomited. After all this going on for almost 20-30 minutes, I was frightened. Slowly my body started breathing normally, but whole night this incident didn t allow me to sleep. Next day I consulted doctor, who told me that this happened due to dehydration and lack of enough sleep. Now again yesterday night I was having cold and fever. My whole nose and ear area was choked. I took Paracetamol, sprayed some Otravin, wore sweater, turned off the fan and went to sleep. Within 60 minutes my fever was gone, but I was not able to sleep. At around 03:00 night I started feeling that I am not able to breathe properly. I opened the door and went in balcony, but I was not gaining breathe. I didn t wanted to repeat the May 2011 scene so I immediately rushed to hospital. There first of all my heart beat rate was checked. Then blood pressure and finally blood sugar level. All found ok. There doctor gave me some breathing treatment with medicine to clear cold and help me breathe properly. The doctor asked me to take Taxim-O and Levocelvi....(something, I cannot read) My paternal history is 4/5 siblings (my father and his brother and sisters) has history of diabetes. My father passed away at the age of 49 due to cardiac arrest. This is the reason I am a bit worried and do not want to take chances with my health. I want to know whether the cause told in both the incidents are true? Shall I go for any other check-up? (The heart, blood pressure and sugar reports were normal in both incidents) What shall I do in emergency if this happens with me again?

My grandfather went into cardiac arrest and they stayed the front to parts of the brain is damaged but the rest is working. He has gone through a numerous surgery and the very first one was on his gallbladder which went wrong but the doctor did not tell us and the doc preformed another surgery to fix his mistake, which then the doctor cut the wrong artier and was transferred to UCSF where the surgeon and doctor told us my grandfather would only have a 2 days to live if we wouldn't have brought-en him to UCSF. My question is if my grandfather is breathing on a ventilation and his hart rate is stable is there any chances he'll get better is there anything we can do?
