My heart was hurting. Why it is happening so ?

What does it mean when you snorted three lines of meth and started fainting, and heart was hurting? My heart was also hurting. What does this mean?

Every body's body chemistry is different. I knew a guy who would smoke a bowl of meth and go to sleep. The fundamentals of amphetamines is that it creates the secretion of adrenaline into your blood stream. This does a number of things including, obviously speeding up the heart rate dramatically. If the 3 lines were done together, there were "large" lines, and if your tolerance was somewhat low, the sudden shock to your system could have created a higher pressure around your heart. this would restrict the volume of blood going through your arteries and creating the faint feeling and the pressure in your chest.

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.
