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 have had breathing problems come up in the past month & 1/2 when doing much walking & small things. I have shortness of breath where I have to breath through my mouth to get enough air. I went to a heart Dr. & he said all sounds good then he had me go to a lung Dr. that now wants to have me do a sleep test. I only had about 5 of the sleep questions in minimal & that s only because I have a bad hip that wakes me up at night. I told her this but she still wants the sleep study. I want a second opinion, am I wrong ?

I had a heart attack a few months back and had an echogram taken which measures your valves and muscles and other parts of your heart. The results I received was that my heart is funcitoning at 25 percent at this time and my muscles are dead. I had 36 sessions of cardiac rehab also and if I walk a short distance I get shortness of breath also. Can I live a normal life with my heart at 25 percent and am I a high risk of living a short life. Thank you
