Did it almost feel like your heart was skipping a little? If it was you had palpitations. Go see a doctor right away! You will need an echocardiogram and perhaps a holter monitor. Don't worry, both tests are completely painless.

Hi i am 30 year old male who was hospitalized 3 months ago for atrial fib. Had the whole gambit of tests and all seemed ok. I was put on beta blockers then a heart monitor a month later for massive palpations and rapid beat. i was put on another med after to regulate heart rate. Now i still experience palpataions and i can feel when they are about to happen. also extreme fatigue and some weakness. What is the issue here? i do smoke but not massive smoker. I did gain 20 pounds since the hospital stay which i have never been able to do. Wonder what id happenin here.

My soon to be 7 yr old daughter complains of a sore heart in the morning when she wakes up- when she gets up in morning says her heart beats fast and she seems a little out of breath. She also has had a few episodes of what I think is heart burn because she will tell me that she has thrown up in her mouth, although it doesn t burn...can these two symptoms be related? Her father and I are very healthy and there is no heart disease in the family...thanks, angie

I am 53 and started a very heavy period on 2nd December. I have now been bleeding for 4 months and am currently taking 10 x 5mg Primolut per day which has minimized the bleeding but not stopped it. I am diabetic, have Hep C and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. I have had a Hysteroscopy and D & C with no signs of cancer. My next option is a hysterectomy. I want to know if taking Primolut for so long is harmful to my liver? Blood tests have shown I am not yet going through menopause. Thank you.
