Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
the symptoms you are having are more likely to be due to anxiety rather than a heart problem. as long as the beats are regular there is no heart problem. Palpitation is due to anxiety. Tab. Propranolol will help you feel better.Still an ECG will clear all your doubts.

I have been having shortness of breath. I have rhinitis/sinusitis and anxiety.Had an ekg and chest xrays. Blood work was all normal. 1st chest xray is showing cloudiness/inflammation.Suggesting COPD. Blood pressure normal, heart rate and pulse ox all good. Would an asthma/panic attack show inflammation/cloudiness in an xray?
Once in a while I feel I have heavy breathing even when I am sitting. What could be the cause? My blood pressure is around 124/ 75 and pulse around 70 I have been a heart patient with multiple stents but am stable. Had a nuclear stress test two weeks ago and there is no change from 2 yrs back.
FOR an extreme athlete (78 wrestling with 18 year-olds, pulse UP NOW to 56), VERY short of breath with LIGHT exercise bike and leg and calf press machines (HEAVY 315 lbs.) after only two strip sets, or sitting down only upper breathing, laboring for shallow breaths. Stress test--easier than usual--and echo cardiogram okay. Bent over a bit. Prescribed inhalers did not help.

I am a male age 15 with no history of drinking smoking taking drugs diabetes or heart defects.
Frequent skipped heartbeats that take my breath away for a split second. I am only 17 and I am worried my heart is going to stop. I have had 2 ECGs and blood taken as well as blood pressure, pulse etc. Doctor said everything is fine and they are normal, but I can t stop worrying about my heart.
I am sixteen and one day at football practice my heart seemed to beat way harder than normal, i could feel it through my whole body and when i felt my chest i could feel my heart beat way more than ever, and i also had chest discomfort and anxiety, ever since then my heart seems to beat harder all the time, and after exercise it takes longer to calm down, i will also get random chest discomforts on certain days,my EKG, holter moniter, and event moniter results have came back normal, but months after that day at practice my heart continues to beat hard, and when i feel my friends hearts through their chests i can barely feel theirs beat,is there anything that could cause this change, because my heart never did that before.
