If you are out of shape or overweight,(even if you are not) moving yourself should not do that, get yourself to a Doctor as soon as possible, even at your age better to get a professional opinion..thanks and good luck

My heart will start to beat really fast and it will feel like when i breath it is inhaled through a filter. at times i fell hot, but not really if that makes sense at all. sometimes i get pain that isn t a constant. sometimes its just in the chest. sometimes its through the neck also. sometimes the pain is feeling like sinus pain as well. and sometimes my whole body. i can move freely and rarely get to the point where i feel like shouldn t move. In a sense to me it sounds like a heart attack, but i have had this problem randomly (maybe 3-5 times a year) its a god aweful feeling. i can remember first experiencing this when i was about 8 or 10 (earliest memory of it) just walking outside. other times its after a bike ride, running, or just doing daily things. its not always an active attack, it does happen when im not doing anything at all too.

Hi there! I am a 60yr old female and for the past 4-5 weeks I have been experiencing fast heartbeats especially when I am lying in bed at night I can hear it beating like heavy drumbeats - and I notice I have been getting tired aas well- e.g. I can t stay up as late as I used to and feel really sleepy all of a sudden at times I can t keep my eyes open - apart from this I am healthy -blood pressure and sugar levels fine but cholesterol just a bit on the high side. I weigh 65 kgs(lost about 5 kgs recently) -an reasonably active as I work in the garden and walk a lot. Should I be worried about getting a heart attack/ what treatment should I be looking at?? Thank you for your time. Patrice
