Hi well come to HCM.
Palpitarion can be there even without any organic lesion. If money is not the problem
submit your self for ECG, ECHO, Holters, and stress test report if all turns out negative
You are likely to have anxiety related or at times in pts with thin chest palpitation is
complained. thanks

Hi, I ve had heart palpitations for over ten years, and I ve had numerous tests done and they ve all come back normal. I ve been told that this is nothing to worry about and that I should just ignore it, however over the last three weeks I ve noticed an increase in the number of palpitations I ve been having and it has become a concern of mine. Should I go back to the cardiologist or just continue to ignore them. I do not get dizzy, short of breath, or have chest pain. They are just scary. Thanks.

I am not certain if this is considered heart palpitation but I feel like heart beat is on my throat and makes me cough. When a heart beat is on my throat I do not feel the pulse. I do not smoke, do not drink alcohol and do not drink caffeinated drinks. I was drinking non-caffeinated coffee but I quit that. I am 55+ year old female and I am not over-weight. I have an appt. with my doctor in about 3 weeks and I am wondering if I shoul see him earlier. Thank you very much, in advance, for your response.

I am a 35 year old male, non-smoker, non-drinker, not overweight, and in pretty good shape healthwise. A year ago I had way too much caffeine after being off of it for several months, and my heart rate and blood pressure skyrocketed. Since then, I have had continuous (daily) discomfort on the far left side of my chest, close to the armpit. Sometimes it radiates around the left nipple, then goes away. It is not painful, just annoying. I do not have trouble breathing. I have gone to a cardiologist and had MRI, EKG, ECG, treadmill, x-rays, and bloodwork done. All are negative for cardiac. Any idea what might cause this? I am leaning toward anxiety of some kind, though I have never been diagnosed with anxiety.

have been having episodes of hypertension and cardiac pain. I spent Tuesday night in the ER getting blood work done, including a hs-CRP test which came back elevated at 7.4 mg/dL. I had a troponin test done that came back as slightly elevated (0.9 ng/mL). I also had an EKG which showed tachycardia (resting heart rate up into the 160s) as well as episodes of a-fib, and an echocardiogram which showed my left atrium was significantly thickened/larger than expected for a normal twenty year old. I was admitted to the cardiac unit over night for observation and given nitroglycerin for the pain as well as medication for my blood pressure. The blood pressure levels regulated somewhat, going down to average of 138/95 at discharge. They gave me a preliminary diagnosis of angina which is shocking since I m 20, of normal weight, have a healthy diet, and normal cholesterol. I ve been referred to a cardiologist and am scheduled for a stress test on Monday. What should I expect? What will the stress test show? Also, what does a enlarged left atrium mean? Is it serious? thanks!
