Since I had recent chest pain, will I actually end up having a heart attack ?

Since I had recent chest pain , will I actually end up having a heart attack ? I am having upper pain in my neck as we speak. I had left chest pain on Dec. 3rd and I think it is coming back. What should I do? Will I have more heart trouble if I have bp of 84/62 with metropolis supposing to take care of palpitations? I see my heart doctor in January and am wondering if I need to find help sooner. My grandpa wants me to see his cardiologist . Should I go see him? The pain that I had on Dec. 3rd, lasted all day. I am only 27 as of today. I don t know what to do. Please help me to find the correct way of dealing with my heart issues. I have mitral valve regurgitation , palpitations, and a prolapse on top of that. I am taking metoprolol which brings down my bp and my heart rate and this has gotten worse since I had a tubal ligation . I just got up to get something and had some palpitations and lightheadedness . I almost blacked out. But I feel fine except for the little pain I am experiencing. My doctor, I told him of the pain the first time and he just pinched my shoulder and then asked me if it hurt. Well, duh. Then on Dec. 3rd, I was asking questions on here and the pain came, though dull and it lasted all day. He also told me to increase my salt intake and I have never had problem with my salt intake. What else can I do? Please tell me. Thank you. My neck is more painful now. If there is an EMT on line, please tell me some other doctors that treat heart conditions. My doctor is foreign and doesn t know what he is doing.

Go see your grandpa's doc. Take him with you if you can when you go. It will help comfort you and since he is familiar with the doc can bring credence to the situation. Pain doesn't necessarily mean that you'll have a HA. HA's are most often caused by blockage in the arteries and veins of the heart or of an electrical interruption. Your cardiac enzyme tests are a good starting point.

I do not take any other type of drug.It does not appear when I exercise it seems to be random. Thanks for your reply grant e

Hey, I was diagnosed with an eating disorder and the effects were secondary amenorrhea and bradycardia. My resting rate rate then was 45 and they said it could be reversed but I was wondering if it was possible to reverse it in a week? I ve been following their orders of eating more for about 5 days now and my resting heart rate is between 70-80 every time I check it.

doctor1 MD

My resting heart rate is unusually fast and even if i just walk up the stairs my heart is racing like ive just ran a mile. When i exercise i can feel my heartbeat in my chin and other strange places aswell as having red, blotchy skin all over my body, mostly my face and arms. Also, after exercise, if i open my mouth i can hear my heartbeat, its like a ticking noise. My mouth goes very very dry too. Finally ive noticed that if i lie down and place something across my chest for example a book or ipad, i can see my ipad wobble alot from my heartbeat, is any of this normal??

doctor1 MD

My rest heart rate is typically around 100 and my blood pressure is typically very good. I am now taking Bisoprol 5mg for atrial tachycardia. My last read had my rest heart rate at 94 but my blood pressure has dropped to 101/57. Should I be concerned?

I am a 23 year old female, studying medicine. For past 8 months, i have been having some episodes of heart 'dysfunctions' that now have turned constant. I need help in knowing what is the condition.
It started last may when one day i started feeling so weak that i just could not get up and was having a splitting headache, when i measured my BP was 90/55mmHg ( before it was always 120/80mmHg). I was having palpitations, bradycardia at times, tachycardia at times, extreme weakness, sweating ( especially on scalp) after sleeping after headache. I was also having light sleep.
Slowly, these episodes became constant. Now I am feeling weak all times, light headed if sitting or standing for long, headache (thumping with constant heaviness), inability to sleep, tightness in chest, chest pain sometimes, tachycardia at any normal activity (walking, doing some tidy up), BP is still low. I also get dry cough on breathing sometimes.
So i got a holter done for 24 hours, got following:
- sinus tachycardia( 110- 120) almost all day with some normal rate in between, my heart rate dropped to 50 in middle of night ( reason causing me to wake up from sleep and not to sleep again) and it remained like that for 3 hours
- average pulse -81
- my heart rate jumped to 179 per min when i climbed stairs ( 9 floors, easily climbed by others), breathing became laboured, headache with blacking out sensations ( i did not faint though)
- I have some abnormalities in lead I, II and III ( looks like left axis deviation as lead I is showing highest peaks and is moving away from III ) even the avL and avF looks weird, QTc>450ms is 47%, no ST deviation, no T wave abnormalities
I also have tachypnea (26-28 per min) and accentuation of Pulmonary part of second heart sound. I also have slight edema on my feet ( bluish tinge)
I also did a blood work up, I do not have thyroid problems or anemia
I need some advice on what i might be having, so as to proceed further on treatment.
