Hello, I am 31 year old female, 5 4 , and 154 lbs. My blood pressure is always normal and heart rate is normal when I do see my doctor. I have severe allergies and am on allergy shots every two weeks. The only regular meds I take are zyrtec and yaz. I work out two to four times a week. I usually just do cardio workouts. My heart rate usually stays within a good range and I recover well after my workout. This weekend, I did some traveling and found that walking up stairs (several flights), my heart was pounding so hard I felt my chest would explode and it was much harder for me to recover. I was breathing slow and deep, but do not feel that I was completely short of breath. I was told I had low iron in the past, but to just take over the counter iron supplement and eat more foods with iron. This horrible pounding and higher heart rate have me nervous. I also occationally feel like my heart his pounding harder (not faster), when sitting. Any suggestions on what is causing this pounding and increased heart rate when going up stairs?
My 67-year old father has undergone two of his first chemotherapy visits to our local hospital, due to colon cancer which metastized into his lymph nodes and several lesions on his liver. Last Monday, he underwent his second chemo treatment and came home with the pump for 48-hour time-release of chemo. The chemo is administered through a port into his chest and included avastin for the first time. My dad is a smoker and his eating habits are poor, and he does not exercise. Last week, for about four days, his complexion was very rosy and he said he felt the best he has felt in about 8 months. Yesterday, however, he experienced pain in his upper abdomen and explained a squeezing pain on his heart. My mother just took him to the ER, as recommended when calling his chemo treatment center, and he was discharged after chest and abdomen x-rays which concluded that his heart was fine. As an aside, my father is taking oral supplementation of blood root , a plant used alternatively for some conditions. His friend told him that it cured an acquaintance s skin cancer.
I am trying to determine reason the I get increased heart rates and feeling of being anxious, jittery. About two weeks ago I went to the ER as I thought I was having a heart attack. I was having a cold sweat and my heart was beating so fast I thought it was going to explode. They ran chest xrays, ekg, blood work and everything was normal as im a fairly fit individual. I think about it often as the fear of this happening again worries me. Im assuming proper diet and rest could cure or help in some way but I feel like I dont know whats wrong as i dont drink or smoke or take supplements. Could it be a combination of stress and lack of rest as well

I walked upstairs and was slightly out of breath. I sat down and noticed my heart rate was elevated but no pain or discomfort. I then noticed I could see my heart rate in my eyes as it caused them to pulse. I'm just wondering if that is a problem.
