Hello,

I would explain that your symptoms could be related to local inflammation.

Anyway, I would recommend performing a chest X-ray study, a resting ECG and some blood lab tests (complete blood count, PCR, ESR, blood electrolytes) in order to be sure that everything is ok.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist

So I just sneezed and experienced a sped up deep heart beat for around 2 minutes or so got concerned enough to notify my girlfriend that I think some thing is wrong but it suddenly stopped.. What just happened I m still worried just because in the past I ve experienced rapid heart beat at odd times like just laying in bed

I am a 28 year old male, 5 8 , 160 pounds. Whenever I sneeze there is an immediate, intense, and sharp pain on the left side of my chest that I believe is derived from my heart. This has been an ongoing problem for many years. I was on beta blockers for a short time last year to help with heart palpitations, but I quit taking them because I ran out. I also was taken to the hospital 9 years ago for severe chest pains. I have a 5 year history of frequent marijuana use, although I have not smoked in 3 months. I also had a 6 month period of time when I used cocaine heavily, but I have not used cocaine in 4 years. I was a pack-and-a-half a day smoker for about 6 years, but I have given up cigarettes, as well. I still dip snuff 5 or 6 times a day. I take hydrocodone for knee and joint pain about twice a week. I am worried that the sharp chest pains I feel when I sneeze could soon lead to a major health issue. How can I prevent this pain from reoccurring?

Hello, I had an abnormal ECG-ST & T segment downsloping in 2-3 aVF, V4-V-6. The doctor said it looked worse than the one I had 6 monthes prior. So, I was sent for an Echo Stress test- Results: Excellent exercise capacity 13.9 METS- QRS pattern in lead V1-V-2. Approximately 1-1.5 further inferolateral ST depression over the resting abnormality. No arrhythmia. It stated Otherwise, normal echo. No indication of exercise induced ischemia, or septal infarction. I worry about this everyday. Should I have further testing, my cardiologist said to see him again in 2 years. F-49 yrs. Thank-you.

I am 59 yr female, had adnormal ekg by insurance co at home then followed up with pcp and it came back adnormal, also. Referred to Cardio guy and he did a echo and nuclear stress test which said both test were good. I work out about 5-6 days a week and have at 58-60 pulse rate resting. The cardio said the ekg did show some adnormalities but not to be concernce with. I had a heart work up about 3 yrs ago with same cardio and it was good also, they checked the last one in compairson and the ekg there also show some adnormals in it-- nothing to worry with. Still wondering why my ekg is showing adnormal all the way around. Is there any thing to be concerened with. I talke high blood pressure linsiporl 20 m 1 @day. my blood pressure was 117/75 at time of echo and for the stress test started out high at 140 over 80 the 1st number got up to 178 and the bottom went down to 77.... ??????
