I am a 24 year old male, about 5 11 175lbs, so I am average height and weight, I eat fairly well and exercise from time to time. A few points in my life I have had a sharp chest pain for a few hours but then it passes and doesn t come back for a few months. Well on 10-10-10 I left work around 2pm and got a burrito from chipotle, came home felt nausea all night long until finally I threw up. The hardest I have ever thrown up in my life, my parents said I sounded like a monster. I felt better after and finally was able to sleep, the following day I had sharp chest pain but just assumed it was from a strain. Towards the end of the day it got to the point I couldnt breath and I had the cold sweats and was holding my chest until finally I went to the ER. They did an ekg on me and blood work and said my heart and lungs were fine and it was probably an anxiety attack or indigestion. Not satisfied with their diagnosis I saw a doctor 2 days later (I STILL had this pain and pressure in my chest) He ordered an Upper G.I. Barium swallow, chest xrays, ultrasound of the abdomen, and a scope test. They found that I had a Hiatal hernia and a significant case of GERD and gave me prilosec and said I d be better in a few days and it was simply indigestion. It has been over a month and I still have these pains and the Prilosec did nothing for me, so finally I went back and he perscribed me another medication similar to prilosec and I am on day 3 of that. What really irritates me is he also gave me medicne for depression and anxiety and said I needed to take that because I was probably just stressed out, but if you knew me you would know I am the happiest go lucky person in the world. I still have these chest pains and I am truly scared, when I requested he send me for testing on my heart he simply said I was too young to have heart/lung problems. The pain the first few days was so intense I would just sit on the couch all day and it has been a few weeks it s finally calmed down to the point I can eat meals again. The first week I would eat a few bites of something and feel full. My chest pain is on the left side and sometimes feels like pressure on my chest, I get headaches all the time I dont know if thats associated, the pain will work its way up to the top left of my chest at times. I can see where he would think this is GERD or something with my stomache but why am I not feeling better with this medication?I drink quite often and I just picked up smoking cigarettes this year, can anybody give me any advice? Do these sound like symptoms similar to GERD and a hernia or am I crazy to think maybe something is wrong with my heart?

My parents brought me to the emergency room because I was having chest pains, shortness of breath, I was getting tired very easily (after taken a couple steps), and having severe body sensitivity to touch. They made me go through the triage center and when they saw my heart rate was reaching up to 146 they admitted me. While in the ER my heart rate was maximum 186 and the doctors there could not find anything through the EKG, X-rays, and all the other tests they had administrered to help them find something to explain my rapid heart rate and tiredness. Well, I was admitted as an impatient the next day after going home and having diarrhea and vomiting all night. I stayed in the hospital a total of 3 1/2 days and they could not find anything wrong with me internally, from what they could see.

My general doctor who is also a cardiologist has already done a 2D echo-cardiogram and has put me on a holter monitor for 24 hours, hoping something would show up. the holter monitor showed that my heart rate goes up to 190 and he is so puzzled as to what it could be. He is thinking I have had this my whole life but only started noticing these symptoms now. He now wants to admit me in a hospital that specializes in cardio issues and is already consulting with anther doctor but they have not made a final decision yet as to what tests they want me to do and where they want to send me.

What could this be?

Hello Dr. Recent days I am feeling that during early mornings some days, my heart beat goes little high and due to that i feel any of the body part ( hand, or leg ) vibrating kind of sense. After i feel such changes, i wake up immediately and as soon as I sat on the bed, the heart beat becomes normal. I have consulted a Cardiologist and he has taken ECG and told me that I am normal, but he suggested couple of tablets in the morning and night to be taken. But still some time I feel this symptoms again. I have high BP taking tablets regularly. most of the time the BP is around 130/90. I am going for morning walk/exercise once in three days regularly. Please suggest what Should I do more to reduce my BP and get rid of fast hear beat? regards Ram
