Hi you need to see a cardiologist to see why you feel this way. Sometimes esophageal reflux can cause this feeling. But this is something you need to have checked before anyone tries to diagnose the problem. Get a physical with the cardiologist and then go from there. Good Luck.

Just got a leaflet through the door telling all the symtoms of a heart attack , it says don t mess about waiting just call the emergency services. Now, I have those symtoms everyday, I also have high b.p. (last checked 120/170 only last week). Am I having heart attacks? Sorry, numbers wrong way round. Feel it like most days but thougt a heart attack was going to be of hollywood proportions, this leaflet describes what I feel.

I am a 24 and a half year old white female with 3 children ages 4 and under. My heart rate is normally on the higher side when I am pregnant and that s pretty much the only time I ever check it. But I ve been checking it a lot the past few days and every time it s been between 101-109bpm. Even after just waking up after sleeping. Sometimes I do feel like my heart is racing. Is this something I should get checked out by a doctor?

Hi, I recently returned home from vacation relaxed and rested. But my issue is that I keep having pinches in my heart and my underarm of my left arm feels like it is kinda numb. I am 40 years old, female and I am over-weight. I do have slight stress issues but nothing out of the ordinary.
