If you are sure that you counted your pulse correctly and if you are not already in the hospital....GO NOW! A heart rate that high and all the other symptoms are surely leading to a place you DON'T WANT TO GO. Sorry, I didn't find this sooner. However, I am sure you have been given this same answer many times over by now. Good luck and best wishes.

I have been tracking my heart rate for a month now and it is on the average 116bpm. Lately I have been experiencing some chest tighteness, lightheadedness, at times feel like I am going to pass out, sick to my stomach and now my left shoulder aches. What could be wrong with me?

I m a 41 yr old female, 5 4 weight: 140lbs. I woke from a sound sleep with feeling sweaty and like my heart was racing. For the past hour I ve been experiencing rapid heart up to about 130 bpm lasting approx 1-2 minutes then gradually drops to normal rate in the 60s (I have a pulse monitor for exercise). I also feel an odd sensation on the sides of neck, kind of like a tightness. No pain otherwise. My blood pressure is 124 over 77. What could this be?

Should I be worried if im a 23yr old woman whos resting heart rate is 140 bpm? I am a 23 year old female and I am slightly over weight. Sometimes I can feel my heart just beating out of control. It usually goes away within an hour this has been going on for about 3 hours now so I got nervous and calculated my bpm and it is at 140 bpm. Is that normal or should I be worried?

I've had many CAT scans and heart moniters in the past to find out if there are any coronary issues. All thats been found is SVT. Sometimes it's better than others but on a more frequent basis my heart seems to pound pretty hard. The actual lub beat feels like it's going to pound out of my chest and I'm just sitting down. Many times this leads to panic and shortness of breath. I've been told there is nothing I can do about it. Does this mean I have a higher probability of heart failure? How can I control my heart pace? Are there any techniques other than breath control?

My daughter was in the hospital this week with blood pressure 200/148. she was there for two days and they sent her home with 148/98. She was taking 10 mg lisinopril and said to take two. She has monitored her blood pressure and the lower number keeps going up. It is now 148/119. She has no chest pains, shortness of breath, etc. They said the high pressure was due to a combination of meds particularly with phenylephrine. She also takes Keppra and Flonaise.
Does she need to go to emergency or can she wait to see if her blood pressure stablizes. thank you.

My daughter is 32 weeks pregnant. For the past couple of weeks, she has been experiencing shortness of breath, chest/rib pain and feeling really tired. Yesterday it was discovered she has a heart murmur. She has never had cardiac problems up to now. She was told to go home and "just lay around and do nothing" until an echo can be done next week to determine how strong her heart is at this time. How dangerous is this condition to her and the baby?

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
