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 have had breathing problems come up in the past month & 1/2 when doing much walking & small things. I have shortness of breath where I have to breath through my mouth to get enough air. I went to a heart Dr. & he said all sounds good then he had me go to a lung Dr. that now wants to have me do a sleep test. I only had about 5 of the sleep questions in minimal & that s only because I have a bad hip that wakes me up at night. I told her this but she still wants the sleep study. I want a second opinion, am I wrong ?

I had a heart attack a few months back and had an echogram taken which measures your valves and muscles and other parts of your heart. The results I received was that my heart is funcitoning at 25 percent at this time and my muscles are dead. I had 36 sessions of cardiac rehab also and if I walk a short distance I get shortness of breath also. Can I live a normal life with my heart at 25 percent and am I a high risk of living a short life. Thank you
