thanks for the query
well given your history and the symptoms it would be wise for you to get yourself evaluated by your doctor and not neglect it. get an ecg and echocardiogram and get yourself evaluated by a cardiologist and if you are healthy there is no doubt in your mind regarding that .

My heart flutters a lot and 4 times already I have actually felt it quiver, it felt like a very very fast spasm that is not actually a beat but a fast shaking. When I have felt the quiver, my face feels like it is hot and red, and I lose a breath and I can t breathe in deep until my heart jumps back into rythm. This heart problem started when I was pregnant with my first child. About the sixth month or so. It started as beating really fast for no particular reason, and I would get so out of breath. It was very similar to having tachycardia . After I delivered, over the next 5 years or so I have felt changes in the condition. After the fast beating and breathing, I started to feel like 1 off beat that I could actually feel. I felt it coming on and I would get behind on a breath, my chest would feel like it flooded with a warm liquid and then the off beat. After some time it progressed to 2 off beats then 3. And now I feel flutters like a fish out of water. Occasionally I have felt the quivers and they are very scary. I have only experienced the quivers like 3 or 4 times as I stated earlier. I do notice that I have the flutters when I drink more caffiene than usual and have more stress. Sometimes I can actually think of them and they happen. My OBGYN told me when I delivered the baby that they would disappear but that was not the case, It is actually gotten worse as you can read from my post. Please tell me what is wrong with my heart.
The past 2 week my heart has just give one hard beat then goes normal again. then again another hard beat. When the hard beat comes it makes my chest feel strange for a split second. The best way to describe it is as though even though it did a beat hard it also felt like it stopped if that makes sense to you. Sometimes it even hurts. If i am sleeping it does it and it wakes me up and i can feel it.
My heart will beat 4 or 6 beats and then skip a beat. Then sometimes it goes 14 or twenty times and skips a beat?? So what is going on??? I don t feel ill or like I am getting aheart attack or do I have any symphtoms of any kind. Life seems to be normal. YYYY@YYYY
My husband has a low heart rate, 42, and is feeling nauseous. His normal heart rate is 55 or so. His doctors tell him he will end up w a pacemaker someday but no official diagnosis has been made beside the fact that he has a heart murmur. Should I take him to the ER NOW
I have had four kids. My mother has tachacardia and heart murmur and low BP. I am 31, 185, 5'6. Could never run very fast even in the military ( i was 18-24 years old). I could only run 1.5 miles 20 minutes at my best. I have heart palpatations when running, walking at steep incline, and when laying down doing absolutely nothing. I don't always get them when doing these activities but it also occurs with shortness of breathe sometimes.
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?
