I have the same thing. I've thought that my heart beat has been irregular for a year or so now, just by counting my pulse and noticing that sometines it skips a beat & then beats twice really fast afterwards. Recently I've started going to the gym more often where the machines count your heart beat. Normally it lingers around 120-140, but then suddenly it will jump to 180-190 or more for a few seconds & yesterday actually reached 216 - which is 15 more than my maximum heart rate. Im 19 years old, 5'7' and weigh around 142 lbs, and I'm quite worried about this, but people just laugh it off and say that the machines must be inaccurate. I think that maybe a doctor will say the same.

It's called an arrhythmia. It's when your heart has an irregular beat. A fast heartbeat can be palpitations or periods of tachycardia. Fast beats of the heart. You should see your doctor about it and find out what's causing it and how to control it. You want to make sure its not a dangerous arrhythmia

Is it a normal thing to feel your heart beating while resting? the thing is that I can feel my heart beat when I m not doing any kind of physical activity, like right now I can feel it beating against my chest, and it gets worst if I go running or something, it beats really fast, so fast that if I sit still my body shakes to the rhythm of it.... is that bad? I don t drink coffee, alcohol or smoke.

Please tell me why I feel so cold and chilled whenever I m indoors? The a/c is on all over the place, but I seem to be the only one that is bothered by it. I am 59 yrs. old. I still get hot flashes every now and then, but mostly I m cold. The 100 degree weather outside feels pretty good for a while. When I come home from work in the evening I have to lay down and take a 2 hour nap. I am literally chilled with the covers on. When I wake up I m fine. Everyone says I m crazy at work because I m so cold.

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.
