Dear Mr.Sanjeev,please get 2-d echo test done for her,to exactly know the cause.As she is asymptomatic and this is accidental detection I do not see any reason for worry.More idea one can have after echo report.bye and take care.

Hi. Im 22 years old and have ASD heart Diease. A year in a half ago I had a closure device put in my heart to close the hole up. After the procedure I developed palpitations severe directly after it was put in. Now i take arrithima pills to steady out my heart beat. last night laying in bed, I could actualy feel my heart stop, for about five seconds, then start beating again. While it stopped, My body felt fuzzy! Very Scary!!! Im worried what could it be? My heart arrithima or heart device? I just need an opionion please!

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.
