kinda sounds like what i have its called pulmonary vascular contractions or (pvc) for short which means when your heart beats normally you have 1 pulse of electric shock to pump the heart with having (pvc) you have 2 quick shocks which throws off the rhythm that's why it hurts there is some medication for that but for them to say positive that is what it is they have to put you on a ekg while you are having them i hope this helps

I have skipped heart beats. Went to ER a year ago and then followed up with cardiologist who did echo And EKG which were normal. Still having constant skipped beats all day and sometimes night. Will this do damage to my heart? Tonight I feel a flutter that makes me want to cough.

Hi, I have been having heart palps for about a month now. ususally in the afternoon . Never when I am active or excercising and it doesn t race. just flutters or feels like it skips a beat and then and extra hard heart beat. My doctor thought it was stress , but I am not stressed . I just had blood test done and all is normal except slightly anemic and my kidney enzymes were up slightly. He did a full work up on it for hepititis and said it was fine . I am 52 and still getting my period ( just finished) . yesterday i was completely relaxed at the movies and it started up fluttering and beating weird . I had to take .5 mg of xanax which still didnt work , went home layed down and then took another .5 , which finally made it go away. Its making me crazy. I am overweight , but just lost 12 lbs and walk about 6.25 miles twice a week. Otherwise i am in good health? Now I m worried I might have an underlying heart condition. My brother had 2 stents put in in the last 10 years and my dad died at 63 of a heart attack .

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.
