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.

Hi, I had open heart surgery when I was 2months old and now I am 21 and haven t had any problems with my check ups. But when I get heart palpitations is worries me. I am on citalopram for panics attacks that had started just over a year ago.But when I have a heart palpitations its like it misses a beat and then the next one is a huge beat, is this something to worry about or what should I do?Also pretty much any pain I feel in around my jaw/arm or chest or nearly anywhere really scares me just because I fear its something to do with my heart.

Hello. My normal heart rate is about 100 - 120 bpm. I had palpitations occasionally but I never went to see the doctor as I thought it was normal although they usually lasted from 5 to 10 minutes. Last year when I was 24 weeks pregnant, I had a heart palpitation (while I was resting) and my heart rate went up to 240 bpm. It was only after I got injected with adenosine (35mins later) did my heart rate went down to 120bpm. The doctors diagnosed me with an SVT. Due to that, I requested to deliver my baby through C-section. This year, I'm pregnant again and I still go for my scheduled appointments every few months with the cardiologist. Only now he does not think it sounds like I have SVT. This year I will deliver my baby normally but I'm still quite worried about my heart. My question is, if I don't have SVT, what kind of heart condition do I have? I still have palpitations sometimes, my heart rate is never below 100bpm, I always feel fatigued and chest pain and short of breath. Thank you.

I am 27 years old. I am a healthy eater, non-smoker, and I exercise regularly. I have had heart palpitations that started after taking a high dose of Dramamine (Dimenhydrinate). I noticed the palpitations and a racing heartbeat right after taking the pills. I was scared, but thought it would be fine in the morning. They never went away. That was three months ago. I can describe it as a skipped beat and then a really hard beat. Thump, thump thump....pause....THUMP. I can feel it in my neck and throat. It also disrupts my breathing rhythm. I have seen my general practitioner several times and have had an EKG and stress test. She told me I possibly have PVC s. She is convinced it is nothing to worry about, however, they are increasing in frequency (sometimes 5-6 a minute) and are very distracting (scary too). I get them randomly with an increase during exercise and the day after. My question is: Could taking this medication have permanently alter my heart function? If not, could it have made me more sensitive to my heart rhythm? I repeat, I have NEVER experienced this sensation before taking this medication. I realize heart palpitations can be benign, but why would they start after this one dose, and continue months later? I want to know if there is anything I can do to prevent this from happening, or reverse this effect. I don t understand a whole lot about heart function, and I am not getting a very thorough explanation about how this could happen from my doctor.

Over the last 7-8 years I had recurring chest pain . A series of tests were done including ECGs, stress test, halter test, Percentine perfusion test and CT scan andin late 2011 my cardiologist concluded that the symptoms were not heart related. Over the last two months my symptoms have returned: chest pain radiating into left arm, left side rib cage, chronic headache, sometime severe usually pressure in the ears and around them. Usually I wake up very early in the morning with chest pain, sometime palpitations and headache. Today I had a severe attack of headache as if my head is in a vice. It continues. I suffer from Acid reflux, somewhat hi blood pressure ( highest readinfg 139/ 78; average of last 11 readings 128/72) hi cholesterol, hypo thyroid (TSH up to 21.8). I am on Nexium 40mg, Metoprolol 50mg, Lipitor 20mg and El Troxin 0.075. My Endicronologist is trying to calibrate the Eltroxin dose. He thinks my symptoms are not Thyroid related. I have been trying to get an appointment with my GP since june 25. She is on holiday and the earliest appointment I got is August 17. My symptoms -- chest pain, headache, radiating pain in shoulder blade, sometimes left ribs, pressure in the eyes, ears continue and I think progressively getting worse. I was treated for prostate 8 years ago, monitored annually the PSA has been much below zero, negligible sometime difficult to trace. Sorry for such a complicated story. I do not know what to do. Should I go to the emergency everyday???? Will appreciate any suggestions
