I had palpatations for a few mins non stop, shoud I go to the doctor ?

I hate wasting doctors time, coz where I live people are hypos and go in with cough. I was told 2 years ago I have a slight heart murmur, nothing to worry about, I just have to be careful lifting things and If I ever have baby. I used to get palpatations quite alot but I ve just gone months without any. I go to keep fit twice a wk and have never had a problem. I also do a job which requires lifting. Last week I lifted heavy items in work and after I suffered a bad scary episode where I had palpatations for a few mins non stop. Ive been fine since but is it worth me going back to my GP.

You have to watch this care fully ,regarding you problems,> ....Are you overweight? Then you probably want to lose some weight. It is obvious that youll burn body fat by increasing your metabolism. But be sure that what you burn is fat, not muscles. Here are Some statistics After age 25, the average person in America gains one pound or more a year, which means at the age of 50 an average person is 25 pounds or more heavier than he or she was 25 years ago. As you age your metabolism is slowing down, causing your body to burn less fat. Without exercising regularly, the average American loses a pound of muscle each year. for more details please visit ........................... ...........................................www.theheartdiseases.com........................................

My heart palpatations happen literally hundreds of times a day. Is this normal? In Summer 2002 I went to the doctor because I had started feeling a sinking feeling in my chest. At that time I didn t think it was my heart as it was more like when you take a breath in but have phlegm on your lungs. Anyway, the doctor said my heart could be doing an extra beat, everything sounded fine and I was probably stressed (I was in second year at universtiy).After that they seemed to go away for a while, then Autumn 2006 it flared up again and I went to the doctor where I now live. I was hooked up to a monitor for a couple of minutes, and they said the reading was a bit inconclusive but probably fine and I was probably stressed as I had just started a year s post grad degree. The symptoms have been there ever since, and I think the palpations are getting much more frequent. Also sometimes when it happens I then feel a kind of rushing sensation up to my head for a second. I ve always been afraid to take my own pulse in case my heart is stopping beating, but today I did as the feelings were coming over and over again. So I took the pusle in my neck and soon realised that my heart does skip a beat when I have these attacks. Last year the doctor said this is all normal and won t scar my heart, but as it seems more often I m getting really scared. But I don t want to go back to the doctor for him just to say yeah yeah, same as last time. But last time when I had the ECG thing I didn t have a palpatation while I was hooked up so I m worried there s something seriously wrong and it was overlooked. Does anyone have a valid opinion about what could be wrong? I m a teacher, but really enjoy it so don t feel like I m stressed out (but I didn t really feel stressed last year either when I went to the Dr.). My dad is pretty ill, so I admit I am a bit worried about him, and when I visited him in hospital every day for a week or so over Christmas my heart was palapatating loads. But then again these days it does that every day.

My 14 yr. old is having extreme burping, we have been to the ER and got no results. She was previously diagnosed with a Lyles Heart murmur or musical murmur. She is 5 9 , 138 pounds, active with basketball and dance. She complains of lightheadedness, chest pain in upper left quadrant, left arm pain and she says she feels like her heart is racing at random times. She can t inhale or exhale deeply without burps, and they are constant and persistant. She has had a normal sonogram of the liver, kidneys, gall bladder. Do you have any suggestions? We are frustrated. In the ER she had low potassium and low BUN, she has also been diagnosed with chillblains on the fingers and toes, negative antigen test for Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis.
