My heart was beating really hard tonight ? Please give me your suggestion why it is happening so ?

After my husband and I finished having sex, my heart was beating really fast, which is normal obviously. But it was also beating really hard, when I was laying on my husbands chest, he made a comment about it also. He could clearly feel it. It felt like it wanted to just out of my chest. It lasted for about 3 minutes, just beating really hard. I m not concerned about it beating fast, but I am because it was so hard. What causes that and does anyone else get that sometimes?

If your heart rate was fast and pounding for about 3 minutes after vigorous sex, I wouldn't worry about it, as long as it slows down and stops pounding after you have rested a while. If the time ever comes and you find your heart racing and pounding with no physical exertion, then thats the time to go see your dr.

sometimes my heart will beat really fast out of nowhere, like there is a spasm and its really uncomfortable and it makes it hard to breath and everything is almost completely black to where i can only kinda see outlines. usually if i sit down and try to breath it will just stop, like it wasnt even there, but last time it happened i was in school and it didnt stop for almost 10 minutes and it was on and off for about 45min. does anyone know what,why, or how i can stop this?

I am 41 and my Heart is Beating Out of time? What s Going On ? It is hard to explain. I am not in pain but my heart will beat weird. Almost feel like it is in a spasm. No pain, in fact I feel a little light headed and almost drunk when it is happening. I am not afraid of dying so I guess this is more interesting than anything else. Am I going to drop dead here in a few days or is this just nothing to worry about? No Joke. This is really odd. Oh and I am completely out of breath just walking DOWN the stairs, up the stairs is almost too much to do. Came on in the last 3 weeks. Not all the time but a lot when I lay down at night. Thank You for all the suggestions to go to the doctor but I don t have insurance and in the USA if you don t have insurance you can not go to the hospital to get help. Like I said, I have already decide I am not scared to die cause I have lived a really great life. I am not Joking, I really am having these problems and I really can not get any medical care because I don t have insurance. So much for the great United States Heath care. My fault for not keep up my insurance.

Hi, my daughter who has just turned 16 has complained about having chest pain while playing soccer today and asked us to take her to the Doctors - like her heart is really straining and about to explode. Also feeling nauseous. Symptoms did improve when she stopped playing. However she now says this has been happening for a couple of months now. She is also having trouble regulating her body temperature and seems to be too hot or too cold - sleeps with nine blankets on her bed and always has cold hands and feet. I am going to make an appoitnment with our GP but would appreciate your thoughts. In December she did get horribly drunk on her Father s Rakia - very high alcohol content. We came home to find her barely/not breathing, her Father had to do CPR while we waited for an ambulance. When they arrived one of the ambulance drivers also rubbed her chest to stimulate her heart. She was given an all clear from the hosipital later that night but I am worried that this may have caused some damage. Thanks

Hi, this may be a strange question, i am trying to understand what happened with a recent situation involving a family member, the person had no symptoms befor ethe incident, she started to fit, slight foaming at the mouth and long deep, slow breaths, 4 breaths before they stopped, i commenced cpr however this failed as the person died, basically im just trying to figure out what caused the fitting, as nobody at the hospital could tell me y and the post mortem came back as ischaemic heart disease due to her long standing history,but was there another factor that could have been overlooked?
