I have Tachycardia.Will I die from this?

So my doctor just called me today and told me that I have Tachycardia( fast- heart ). I have to go see the heart doctor on Friday. I am scared that I could die before then. Do you think that is possible or that I could die from this at all? Does anyone else have this problem? What was your solution to the problem? I just want to thank everyone for their wonderful answers! I went to the doctor on Friday and he gave me a pill to take. I hope that it works! I am also going to start working out more to lose weight too. He said my anxiety attacks might be setting it off since I am so afraid of dying in my sleep. I hope it works! Yall pray for me!

You dont mention your age or the reason you saw the md . Do you notice the increase in your heart rate ? It could be a number of things and no you wont die . It may be a slightly higher heart rate than normal . This can be caused by allergy meds such as sudafed . It could be due to anxiety . But your md would still send you to the heart md to check out your heart they havr to rule every thing out . it could be an alternative electrical pathway in your heart , this conducts the heart beat . If you have an extra one that is telling the heart to beat too fast , this could cause tachycardia . My daughter had this at birth . She out grew it but there is treatment if you dont including medication and other inor procedures . Dont worry if you were going to die your Md would have sent you right to icu .

My father died of a sudden heart attack in his home. I cannot get over this regret I am feeling ? I should have gotten him LIFE ALERT and he could have pressed it and been saved. He was 76 years old. He had several health problems including diabetes (controlled), hypertension (controlled), stage 4 kidney disease, and atrial fibrillation (controlled by digoxin). He had two strokes in the past, the last being 12 years ago, which paralyzed his left side, but he got some of it back and could walk with a cane. He also had a mild heart attack about 15 years ago, which was treated with balloon angioplasty. I wanted him to enjoy his final years, so I let him drive, and do his own things, etc. I am VERY REGRETFUL that I did not get him LIFE ALERT (or another similar product). I realize that sometimes when people have a heart attack, they do not know it, and cannot press the button, but I am still very regretful over this. I don t know how I am ever going to forgive myself for this. please help! Thank you everybody, you are very helpful. God Bless You all. Just for the record, he was found on the kitchen floor in the sitting position (on his bottom), with his knees bent, feet flat on the floor, and his head slumped down to his chest. One arm had an abrasion on it on the upper side of the forearm , as if he may have nicked it against the table or chair that he was near.

MY partner had a pituitary apolexy 7 weeks ago which he had an operation on, but some of the tumour is still there. He is now on thyroxine 100 mcgs od and hydrocortisone 20mgs morning, 15mgs lunchtime and 5 mgs pm. How much alcholol is he allowed to consume in a day. Also is it possible that the pituiatary gland will work again as it was not all removed. Can hydrocortisone make you aggressive, especially when drinking alchohol his age is 42 years he is 178cm and 102 kgs

i m a clinical social worker. 14 year old client has micradenoma on or near pituitary gland. Some hormone levels were elevated but she was examined by neurologist and no surgery necessary they say. Has all kinds of symptoms -- racing thoughts, visual hallucinations at times, out of control anxiety, rage outbursts, trouble reasoning and little access to insight, preoccupied about her body and somatic complaints, defiance. However she doesn t really seem bipolar or schizophrenic, though she was Dx d bipolar. I don t think it looks psychiatric, it seems so odd and doesn t add up to any one Dx. Neurologists told parents the tumor had nothing to do wiht any of this, what do you think??
