I have skipped heart beats. Went to ER a year ago and then followed up with cardiologist who did echo And EKG which were normal. Still having constant skipped beats all day and sometimes night. Will this do damage to my heart? Tonight I feel a flutter that makes me want to cough.

I just got a cardiac stress test and an echocardiogram done today. I am having a LOT of PVC s. the options are to: 1. ignore it since I am not having any other symptoms, 2. get on Verapamil, or 3. cardiac ablation which only has a 70% chance of eradicating this problem. Structurally my heart is healty, not regurg, no enlarged chambes, EF is 70%, I am 52 y/o and I exercise, eat healthy and am not overweight. My concern is: 1. how long can I live with these PVC s. 2. I am about to start taking Cymbalta and am concerned how this medication will react with Verapamil if I start taking this drug as well.

I am wondering about a cough i ve had for a year and a half. I take clonidine, metoprolol, lasix and azor for high blood pressure for some years now like 6. I had a pericardial effusion 2 years ago. Something is making me cough. Its clear and constant and interferes with my sleep and days. I am also a peritoneal patient. I wonder having my pericardial effusion, to drain the fluid from around my heart, where does the fluid go now in my body and could it cause me to cough if its coming up from somewhere to my throat. I tried omitting the bp meds, but don t think its that. I have also been treated for GERD. But I dont have heartburn, just fluid that comes up and makes me cough. It hurts to cough and im hoarse and my heart even hurts from coughing every single day.

My husband has RA. He has had his pericardial sac removed due to buildup of fluid and also a thoracentisis ~ where they sealed his left side to prevent the buildup of fluid. So he now can breathe better. He now has a full feeling in his stomach. Could RA fluid accumulate there. In the past surgeries the fluid has solidified and they had to peel if off from this heart and lung. What should he do?

I am a 41 year old female that was diagnosed with Pericardial effusion almost 2 years ago... drained finally after approximately 3 months, continue to have small amount of fluid around heart, have dealt with many irregular beats since as well, including bigiminy and trigiminy (sorry about spelling), i have a whooshing sound in ear for a couple of years now as well... I have lost approximately 50 pounds and many inches in the last six months and that isn t easy for me as I have tried to lose weight for years with no success as I am surgical menopausal since I was 34 as well as hypothyroid for approx 15 years. ... the worst thing is now I seem to have developed a heart murmur... no one can figure all of this out and it is getting frustrating. I hope you can give me some suggestions. thanks from a frustrated, fatigued woman. Sheryl.
