Honestly, you should see a doctor ASAP. It could be something very serious. I think you are using very bad personal judgement for relying on Yahoo Answers to diagnose a heart problem. Seek professional medical advise ASAP.

I just came from restaurant and at the restaurant I was eating my food and I noticed that my heart started beating very rapidly I didn t do any physical activity I wasn t nervous or anything like that my heart just started beating very rapidly to the point where I can feel it if I just placed my hand on it. I went out to dinner at around seven and it s still doing the same thing and it is now 10:30. I feel the heartbeat more so towards my throat, like the bottom of my throat. if I touch mycollarbone I feel the heartbeat there. so I was wondering what could cause this and how I could stop it because it is continuing to beat rapidly and it s uncomfortable please help me Dr.

Hello Dr, 41 year old, non-smoker, 1-5 units of alcohol a week, active, no other health issues. Family history of heart problems (Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ), have been checked and do not have it, although have a slight thickening of arterial knuckle which gets monitored. I m getting what feels like pulses or faint flutters from my oesophagus region to the top of my sternum region, these symptoms are infrequent during the day to sometimes non-existent, but at night the symptoms only occur when laid on my back or on my left side (they disappear when I m lying on my right side?) and feel more constant with a heart beat ie pulses at a constant rate. Occasionally have slight breathlessness since this has started 1 week ago. Now I ve had a slight upset stomach (although not constipated I ve not been regular) the last week and the symptoms do seem to be more present when I have heavy feeling in my stomach and then subside once I pass wind. Is the pulses/flutter linked to this and could be a blockage and wind not escaping? Or something else?

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.

Recently I have been experiencing a "racing heart" ulse rate upwards to 111, and general tiredness. Is this something to be concerned about since heart disease runs in my family, including a sibling that died from a heat attack at age 57. My age is 56
