Hi I am 17 years old, and recently my heart has been acting strange. For a few years now I would suddenly feel my heart pound very heavily sometimes to the point of where it makes me cough rather hard. But it would only happen say...once or twice a year if that. So I didnt pay much attention to it. Recently this year (2011) my heart has done it many times, so often that it doesnt take me by suprise, I just stop what im doing and take a few deep breathes and try to really work on breathing steady. WELL, now this year, not only has my heart done that many times, but now it flutters? I think thats how you would explain it. I feel it like...almost tripping over itself so-to-speak. And a few weaks ago it did it for like a whole 20 seconds. I was in the car talking to my bf, so there was no stress, i was not driving. And especially within this month (may) it has done it countless times, also, last night it did it and i felt very short of breath so i layed down and sort of just waiting for it to quit. I know this is long but i wanted to tell all the details. My grandmother has cardio myopathy, her left vintricle valve did not completely form as a child. She says its like a sponge? where when blood passes through it sucks it up and so it prevents the proper amount of blood to go through. Heart conditions run in my family. So ya. pls help? I am going to the doctors when I can.
What kind of medication would you recommend to help a person with heart irregularity? A person I am talking about has a problem of irregular heart beating. The pulse is quite strong, but there is a strong uneveness of the time between the beats (because of which the heart stabilizer was installed and used). After its installation the pulse became less strong and quite even, but the strenghth of pulse became a little uneven. My question is: what kind of medication, if any would you recommend to improve functioning of the heart? Thanks very much in advance! There were conduction problems, which were leading to irregularities I mentioned above. This person had emotional shocks in the past, which had caused heart abnormalities. This person suspectedly had several heart attacks, one of which led to a clinical death. When this happened, this person was reanimated (10 minutes after the heart stopped). When I talk about improving functioning of the heart , I mean optimization of its work so that person feels good. The installed pacemaker is an atrioventricular one. The person suffers from the pace slowering.
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.
