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?

For the past 4 days, my blood pressure has been running anywhere from 130/95 to 120/102. My blood pressure is usually normal (typically 120/78 or so). I have high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease & am 51. What I don t understand is the numbers being close together. My last reading was 119/102.

I am a 44 year old male with a family history of hyperlipidemia and heart disease. My father had a AMI at age 50 and expired. His father expired at age 51 with an AMi. Both were sudden death. I had a Cardiac CTA yesterday which revealed a calcium score of 252. The report revealed a 70-80% blockage to the middle of the LAD with about 50% occlusion on both of the ends. Seeing a cardiologist tomorrow. What do you think the treatment will be for this?

I recently had an ECG after an abnormal EKG. The ECG showed vent. rate 108bpm Sinus tachycardia, PR interval 158 ms, possible left atrial enlargement, QRS duration 88 ms , nonspecific ST abnormality, QT/QTc 368/493 ms, abnormal ECG, P-R-T axes 70 48 58 and prolonged QT. The cardiologist didn t seem very concerned and felt the abnormality was because of the medication I was taking - remeron for sleeping; I suffer from chronic insomnia. I have been on this medication for over two years and have never had any side effects or problems with it. In the past three-four months, however, I have been experiencing chest pains, some severe which is why I went to my physician to get the first EKG which showed a fast heart beat and was referred to the cardiologist for an ECG, EKG and a stress test. I was only on the treadmill for maybe 4 1/3 minutes before I experienced SOB and chest pains. They repeated the ECG and I was told it was abnormal and to discuss my medications with my psychiatrist and that I had nothing to worry about. When I see abnormal ECG, EKG and am taking nitro tablets with a family history of heart disease (father COPD, CHF and angioplasty; grandfather died of a heart attack), I have a tendency not to believe the doctor. I have not even been contacted by my physician for a follow-up visit. Should I be concerned. Cancer also runs in my family; my father died of colon, liver CA and I am breast cancer survivor. I d appreciate your comments. Should I seek another opinion? Thanks, Mary Kopco YYYY@YYYY I am a 61 y.o. white female, 137 lbs w/ hx of cancer (bilateral mastectomy and hysterectomy for CA of uterus), osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, high cholesterol (328), allergic to any statin drugs, being treated with Zetia 10 mg 1 x/day. Presently taking nitro tabs for chest pain, oxybutityn for overactive bladder, clonazepam 1mg 3x/day for anxiety and depression. I look forward to your response. Thank you.
