Your blood pressure is excellent. Heart rate between 60-100 is normal at rest. If you are out of shape your heart rate may be a little higher. Ideal way to check blood pressure and heart rate is sitting on a chair with back support and feet touching the floor. Arm is at heart level. You must rest for at least 5 minutes and be in no distress or pain. You must not be taking any stimulants like coffee/caffeine or any medications/herbs that can increase your heart rate.

I often have an irregular heartbeat during the course of the day (5 to 6 times). I can feel gas moving around in my system almost everytime this occurs. I often have rapid heartbeats which are relieved by passing . I was hospitalized before because I thought tI was having a heart attack but after thorough testing (ekg, ultrasound, stress test, wearing a heart monitor at home) they found nothing. What could be a possible avenue that I can pursue to finally get rid of this or at least be able to treat it.

I'm a 21 yr old female having constant heart palpitations. I know what they are and what they feel like some are stronger than others but I feel them all the time. I don't have insurance so I haven't seen a cardiologist. I don't smoke, drink anything with caffeine, and only drink alcohol occasionally. Some doctors have said possible mitral valve prolapse. I'm just wondering what could be causing so many palpitations and also I have had them since I was 18 they are just getting much worse I also have chest pain just about every day.
