Is it bad for a girl with Palpitation (heart problems) to have a relationship ?

Is it bad for a girl with Palpitation ( heart problems) to have a relationship? It s really tearing me apart everytime people say that me and my best friend can t be together because she has a heart problem.. She keeps on telling me to give up because I ll get hurt in the long run.. I remember was the doctor telling her that she eats too much salty food and caffeine . Me and my best friend have been together for 7 years. We never had any intimate relationship because of our own fears.. I m willing to take that risk just to be with her.. If i need to sacrifice something, I wouldn t think twice about doing it .. to summarize it all: Is it bad for a woman to have a relationship? I mean like being married and having kids..

The things people are telling your are completely false. Abnormalities in heart beats are very common, and only a few types present much of risk. If your friend has a heart problem that is risky, the doctors would be treating it and your friend would know exactly what rules she has to follow. Ask her what her doctor has told her. There's some accurate info at the link.

Can anybody advice me the reason for heart palpitation, especially in the night just before going to bed or in sleep. I checked with my Dr who checked ECG Cholestrol etc and said no problem and gave some vitamin tablets, then it decreased, after one week again started. Anybody have similar experiences?

I started having heart palpations about ten months ago, seen a cardiologist and he did a echocardiogram and had me wear a heart monitor for 24 hr, he found nothing wrong just said I had extra heart beats but it wasn t bad enough to treat. It drives me crazy not knowing how to fix the problem, it s very scary at times. Any ideas?

I used to smoke weed everyday for about 2 years straight with no problems then i tried that k-2 shit and i started freaking out and my heart was racing so fast i couldent control it. after about 8 months of not doing anything (because i scared myself so bad i tried weed again and felt exactly how i did when i smoke that k-2 stuff my heart was racing and i felt like i was going to have a heart attack. My arms were going numb and then i went for a walk which calmed me a bit (after pacing up and down my friends driveway taking in deep breaths with my heart on my chest for a half hour), but the thought juts kept creeping in my mind about my heart and i couldent get rid of it. This now happens even when im sober ( I really think that i have just scared myself so bad and that its all psychological) but any advice would be great!

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.

I have been prescribed isoptin 240 ml per day as my blood pressure has been up to 165 over 93. Also I have been getting palpitation which at times last up to a couple of hours. Had a heart monitor put on . showed my heart rate going up to 114. resting at about 66. Which I know is good. the results of the monitor showed over 2000 ectopic episodes. Is this anything to worry about.

I am 74 years old and have experienced hot flushes since menopause (at age 54). I experience moderate to high blood pressure and most medications for this make my symptoms worse. I have heart palpitations during these uncomfortable symptoms, experience fatigue and have night sweats which wake me up. I have Sjoegren's Syndrome with Sicca, and Peripehral neuropathy and most other aging symptoms. I don't have dementia, thankfully, but I am curious as to whether hot flushes are impacting on my blood pressure and contributing to my anxieties or could it be caused by my thyroid? My tests show a normal reading for my thyroid. I also had cancer of the uterus, grade 1, and had everything removed nine years ago and have remained cancer free to date. I hope you can help me find a way to improve the situation as I don't have any blocked arteries or heart problems so it is a mystery to me. I am worried about the impact it may eventually have on my heart. Sincerely yours,
