Is 210 heartbeat rate dangerous while i m 26 ?

Hi, I am 26 yrz old female...2 months ago i was sitting in my room...all of a sudden i felt dizzling for about 3 to 4 minutes and then my heart beat became so fast...i was like i am gona die...after 2 hours, i got normal but felt weakness in my body for whole day. Again after a week it heppened again but i again did nt noticed. Now after 2 months it heppened again but this time it was for about 3 hours and continuously heartbeat was fast so i went to hospital, in emergency they gave me treatment and when my heartbeat became normal. they referred me to electrophysiology department. The doc gave me few tests like ETT, echo and throid tests. all were normal. doc described me in short that there is some problem in your heart current system and also i need to go for EPS. As dr told me, 30%treatment is successful in medicine but if you will go for EPS, you will be 100% alright. Now i am bit confused what i should do? Oh yeah, my heart rate was 210 while i was just watching tv. Please help me. Also please tell me what are the risks if i dont go for EPS?

hi,
you have to go for it.Intracardiac electrophysiology study (EPS) is an invasive test that allows doctors to determine the details of abnormal heartbeats/arrythmias.it took usualy 30mts to 1 hr.this procedure is generally very safe but have some risks but crdiologists can do a catheter ablation to treat the arrithmia so go for it .all the best and wish you a speedy recovery

I am a 26 year old female. I am 5 2 and about 150 lbs. I work out around 3 times a week, and I like to run. When I run, my heart rate reaches around 210 within a couple of minutes. Even working out at a low intensity or lifting weights, my heart rate reaches 170-190. Also, in the past few months, I have been having an aching pain in the left side of my neck . It doesn t happen all of the time, but almost always when I am sitting down. What could be wrong with my heart?

Hello Dr, 41 year old, non-smoker, 1-5 units of alcohol a week, active, no other health issues. Family history of heart problems (Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ), have been checked and do not have it, although have a slight thickening of arterial knuckle which gets monitored. I m getting what feels like pulses or faint flutters from my oesophagus region to the top of my sternum region, these symptoms are infrequent during the day to sometimes non-existent, but at night the symptoms only occur when laid on my back or on my left side (they disappear when I m lying on my right side?) and feel more constant with a heart beat ie pulses at a constant rate. Occasionally have slight breathlessness since this has started 1 week ago. Now I ve had a slight upset stomach (although not constipated I ve not been regular) the last week and the symptoms do seem to be more present when I have heavy feeling in my stomach and then subside once I pass wind. Is the pulses/flutter linked to this and could be a blockage and wind not escaping? Or something else?

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
