Yes, I worked for a heart surgeon and a cardiology group for ove 30 years---you should not do anything to stress yourself out until you have further testing--which will be a stress test and possibly a cardiac catheterization....depending on WHAT was abnormal on the ekg......was it the rhythm or did it show a wave abnormality? it can also show if you had a previous heart attack....not to scare you, I don't mean to, but I do want you to call your doctor and get sedatives to stay on so you don't stress until they test you... and forget working....take some days off and chill.....and no workouts of any kind--especially sex.....and if you fool around with sex drugs, or coke or any other recreational drug- YOU MUST TELL YOUR DOCTOR. They need that info because the drugs may have caused the irregularity..........sorry to be so blunt, but I don't want you to ignore the seriousness of this........age means nothing.........there were a lot of athletes that died of heart attacks at 16 and 17 because of congenital heart problems-- which mean they were born with problems....please take it easy and get some chill pills until at least you get your tests done.......and make sure you have a really good Cardiologist---check him out on the web.......

Hello. Yesterday I had a light / sharp pain (that came and went) in my upper chest near my clavicle. I have also felt a slight fluttering feeling now and then. Now today I have a cough that is coming and going. Originally this morning it felt like it may have had to do with sinuses draining but it s become more dry as the day has gone on. Any ideas? Or should I be going to see someone?

I believe I have bronchitis. During the day it s bad enough, but night is horrible! I cough so much that sleep is impossible. And now my nose is stuffed up and my ears feel like they pop when I cough. Also, my chest aches with every cough. What can I do to stop the coughing and pain?

I've had many CAT scans and heart moniters in the past to find out if there are any coronary issues. All thats been found is SVT. Sometimes it's better than others but on a more frequent basis my heart seems to pound pretty hard. The actual lub beat feels like it's going to pound out of my chest and I'm just sitting down. Many times this leads to panic and shortness of breath. I've been told there is nothing I can do about it. Does this mean I have a higher probability of heart failure? How can I control my heart pace? Are there any techniques other than breath control?

My daughter was in the hospital this week with blood pressure 200/148. she was there for two days and they sent her home with 148/98. She was taking 10 mg lisinopril and said to take two. She has monitored her blood pressure and the lower number keeps going up. It is now 148/119. She has no chest pains, shortness of breath, etc. They said the high pressure was due to a combination of meds particularly with phenylephrine. She also takes Keppra and Flonaise.
Does she need to go to emergency or can she wait to see if her blood pressure stablizes. thank you.

My daughter is 32 weeks pregnant. For the past couple of weeks, she has been experiencing shortness of breath, chest/rib pain and feeling really tired. Yesterday it was discovered she has a heart murmur. She has never had cardiac problems up to now. She was told to go home and "just lay around and do nothing" until an echo can be done next week to determine how strong her heart is at this time. How dangerous is this condition to her and the baby?

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
