What causes rapid heart beats followed by chest and back pain?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... Hi, my granddaughter is 17 and is doing track that started in January. Today while she and I were sitting in church her heart began to beat fast and later she had some pains in her chest around her heart. She also had some pains in her back. When I got to her house this morning she was having really bad stomach pains, could the chest pains be related to her stomach pains or should we be concerned since I have heard of sports player falling dead with their heart? Thank you very much, Evelyn Miley

Hello,

I prefer to do consult a cardiologist at first to do ECHO imaging, and stress ECG to exclude organic heart disease.

Take care

I m sixteen years old. and about a year ago, this thing happened to me that was so wierd. I was sitting down, with a couple of friends when my heart started racing as though i just ran a mile! like it was beating super fast. it lasted about maybe less than a minute. That was the first time i experienced it. After that Ill get it sometimes out of the blue, usually when I laugh, then my heart just starts going. I panic, and probably that just makes it beat faster but idk, i dont feel dizzy, or anything. theres no pain. i just put my hand to my heart and its beatingggg suppeerrrr fastt. im scared. its happened about 5 times already? in about a year or a lil more. But sometimes ill hold my breath and then my heart rate goes back to its normal way, doesnt always work tho. Any idea what it might be???

I m taking 30mg Flexeril and 800mg Ibuprofen for back pain and before I fell asleep last night there was a very intense tightness in my chest and it worried me. I smoke between 5-10 cigarettes a day and was wondering if the combination of the cigarettes and Flexeril may have propagated the symptom.

I have a complicated 7 year history of low back pain with radicular symptoms after prolapsing 2 discs at L4/ L5 when moving house and then L5/ S1 18 months ago. The subsequent CT (can t have MRI due to SCS) apparently showed no nerve impingement or stenosis. 11 weeks ago I had surgery to implant a 2nd lead into my SCS which was implanted 2 years ago and went back to work a month ago. Since my return, my back pain has got really bad, as has the sciatica. It has prgressed over this period so that last weekend I had electric shock type pains in my legs and then I m now getting very bad pins & needles and tingling in both legs, my back, my lower abdomen and yesterday also my saddle area . Today I just have it in my legs, hips and low back as well as burning pain down the sides of my legs but as the day goes on it generally gets worse and at night I can t feel the stimulation from my SCS as it is so stroing. It feels like I have cool water running down from my lower back and down both legs. I have an appointment for reprogramming at the end of the week. Do I take this progression seriously as possibly cauda equina syndrome or similar or leave it and see how it progresses? Many thanks.
