7 years ago my 19 year old son was told he needed a pacemaker. But in that same breathe the doctor said that they don t put pacemakers in 19 year olds. I believe this is because he has no insurance. That doctor had run a battery of tests and said that my son s heart kicked in when he needed it too. My question is, My son had a surgery at age 2 (oral reconstruction) and another at age 8 (appendix). Never in the entire 19 years before, were we ever told of a heart problem. He was diagnosed with ADHD at age 7. I am wondering if any of this ADHD medications could have caused his heart condition.

I often have an irregular heartbeat during the course of the day (5 to 6 times). I can feel gas moving around in my system almost everytime this occurs. I often have rapid heartbeats which are relieved by passing . I was hospitalized before because I thought tI was having a heart attack but after thorough testing (ekg, ultrasound, stress test, wearing a heart monitor at home) they found nothing. What could be a possible avenue that I can pursue to finally get rid of this or at least be able to treat it.

I'm a 21 yr old female having constant heart palpitations. I know what they are and what they feel like some are stronger than others but I feel them all the time. I don't have insurance so I haven't seen a cardiologist. I don't smoke, drink anything with caffeine, and only drink alcohol occasionally. Some doctors have said possible mitral valve prolapse. I'm just wondering what could be causing so many palpitations and also I have had them since I was 18 they are just getting much worse I also have chest pain just about every day.
