I have had the same problem for 7 yrs now. It started with a hyperthyroid, but it has been normal for 6 yrs. I use to take beta blockers, but they made me dizzy or my muscles weak. Beta blockers is all I know to slow it down. Sometimes holding your breathe and bearing down like you are having a BM will slow it down temp. Or chewing on ice. That is all I know.

Hi,
Thanks for query,
This seems to be due to having panic attack and anxiety neurosis,
But before we stamped out panic attack,rule out any cardiac cause.
Ok and bye.

I am 42 yrs. Recently I checked my SGPT ( ALT ) which is 66. I drink alcohol on an average 2-3 times (generally twice) a week. After 5 week staying away from alcohol it is still at same level. I am not sure if it is alcoholic or non alcoholic. Is there any means we can differentiate between alc and non-alc fatty lever problem. Kindly advice if there is any risk and means to control the ALT level. Thanks AP

Hello. I am a 50 year old male with the following blood results: Glucose 71; Triglicericides 238; Cholesterol 236; B.P 120/80. I do drink to much alcohol, I ve just stopped smoking (2 weeks ago), don t take much exercise and eat sweets by the bag load. Time to change. Will even the simple act of stopping the sweets lower my Triglicericides and will this also help lower my Cholesterol?

My 4 year old daughter is due to have an MRI in a week. Neurologist says she wants brain and spine due to her not being potty trained yet or even able to realize she has had a bowel movement....she has been to several docs and clinics and no firm diagnosis,... could the neurologist be thinking tethered cord??? She does have Sensory Processing Dissorder, Anxiety with panic attacks, major sleep disruption issues and hallucinations. They are doing a sleep deprived EEG to see if some of her myoclonis is seizure related. She is on meds: Risperidone and clonidine, with 3 mg. of melatonin as well. She has O.T. and P.T. once per week, with alot of motor control issues, gait , balance and ataxia. I feel she may have most definitely a chromosome deletion problem, genetic...somthing in that area. At one point they mentioned DiGeorge Syndrome, then didn t want to test. I had a Fragile X test started, and it came up negative. (my daughter also has alot of tantrums and inconsolable crying where she cannot stop. Where should I go if MRI and EEG come up with no answers...What next??? Her current psychiatrist suggests I stop looking for answers and work with what I have... I dont think that s a good idea...this is my daughter ...Please give me your opinion.... Thank You So Much, Michelle

My heart feels strange sometimes. Sometimes it beats to hard it feels like its going to beat out of my chest. It sometimes has an uneven beat or it skips a beat. I also have anxiety attacks for no reason sometimes. I am a 32 year old male and of a healthy weight. I am very active. I do have neurofibromitosis.

My mum (79) demanded that she come off bisoprolol after taking for 3 years, as she felt she should not have been on it. The doctor agreed and she is now suffering with increased heart rate (120bpm) at times, but wont see a doctor. She suffers generally with her nerves and feels that going back on the bisoprolol again will calm her down. Is she just panicing or will the panic attack be because of coming off the bisoprolol? She also came off bumetanide at the same time, for the same reason (ie she felt she should never have been put on those tablets)

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
