Well, it's not normal for anyone to have an arrhythmia. It's an irregular heartbeat, which means it's not a normal heartbeat. You should get it checked out by a doctor.

Hi. I have been suffering from chest discomfort, mild left chest pains, intense fear and panic episodes, and constant heart palpitations for a few weeks now. I went to my GP and he did an EKG. Said my heart was slightly arrhythmic. I am super scared of sudden death. He put me on metaprolol, Xanax, and celexa. What else would you recommend? How likely am I to have sudden death? I m 30, non smoker, no alcohol, very overweight, somewhat active. I really would like to have a complete check by a cardiologist, but I have no insurance.

Hi,

Could you tell me whether Lanzaprazole has been linked in any way to causing ectopic heart beats? Currently I am taking 30mg every morning to combat acid, but have been experiencing more than normal ectopic heartbeats in the last week or so.

Would be grateful for your advice and any help you could give me on ectopics. I would add that I have had many tests to check out my heart and it seems in good shape. It's just that one AF attack 4 years ago seems to have sparked off these awful ectopics.

Many thanks,
k,m.,

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.

My husband is 80 years old and has been diagnosed with congenial heart dease. His heart is only pumping half the speed of a normal heart beat. And now his lungs are filling with fluid. He also has Alzheimer's.
