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?

A 54-year-old Type-A male business executive had been experiencing migrainelike headaches. One afternoon he also experienced light-headedness, slurred speech and mildly impaired motor function on his right side. One of his colleagues rushed him to the emergency room of a nearby hospital where blood pressure, blood gases, electrolytes, and an ECG were run. His blood pressure was 195/100 mm Hg, which he said was typical of what he had experienced during the past two years. Blood gases and electrolytes were normal. The ECG showed no arrhythmias but did demonstrate a left axis deviation. The gentleman was admitted to the hospital and a cerebral angiogram was performed which showed left cerebral hemorrhaging. 1. What is the diagnosis of this individual s disorder?2. What are the major contributing factors to this disorder?3. What could have been done to prevent this problem?4. What are the early warning symptoms prior to the complication?5. Why did the ECG show a left axis deviation?6. Why was there impaired motor function on the right side from cerebral hemorrhaging on the left side?

I have chronic a-fib, 24/7. It was previously controlled with different meds following a cardio version, but that is no longer effective. I now live at 60 of altitude in Houston, and take yearly trips, or more often, to New Mexico, Colorado and/or Wyoming, where I grew up. The altitudes vary from 8500 or 9000 to 7200 and down to about 6000 . I am a 73 yr old female, overweight and fairly sedentary due to exercise fatigue from the a-fib. I am contemplating a vacation of 2 weeks or less at an altitude of 7000 or 8000 . We would be making the ascent by automobile, and I don t anticipate any hiking or climbing. My blood pressure is well-controlled at about 120/70 but my heart rate is obviously erratic and usually rapid at 80-90. My question is whether this is something I can safely do? I had an echocardiogram, an ECG and a semiannual checkup with my cardiologist about 3 weeks ago.

I am having constant thudding heartbeats with irregular or skipped beats.
This has been going on for the last five hours . I can't sleep. It has been bad for the last two days but not constant as it is now . I'm worried. I can't fall asleep . I seem to lurch awake even as I drift off with another powerful rushing feeling of thudding in my chest and more skipped beats.
I have been complaining to my doctor for 12 years of irregular beats. I have had several ECG and scans and they always tell me there's nothing wrong with the functioning of my heart but I can't ignore these symptoms that don't go away. I believe my stressing over them makes them worse but it's a vicious circle. I am meant to be on Citalopram but took one tablet and woke up in the middle of the night clenching my jaw with skipping beats . Looking up the side effects/contra indications it says should not take if suffer any heart rhythms problems. Why is my doctor giving me these ? So I daren't take them for fear of making things worse but I do need an anxiolytic as prescribed.
