Why do I sometimes get heart flutters when my echo and ekg came back normal?
I didnt ask the doctor because I totally forgot and was never much of an issue.. I am 23 weeks pregnant, so maybe its just a side effect of it? ( only breathless after I eat a lot or from anxiety)

When you have undergone both these tests and they are normal, nothing to worry, part of normal physiological changes that takes place during pregnancy. Eat Fiber diet more, Avoid constipation, and have fish proteins. Avoid stimulants e.g coffee, etc. However keep a regular ante-natal check up. Relax, and do the regular exercises if advised by your Obs.

I have chest pains that come and go that s in the upper chest with pains in my upper back. It also hurts sometimes when I move. I have had abnormal EKG s but my stress test and other heart tests came back normal. Could I be having some heart problems.

Hello. I am a 27 year old female who has been having a dull ache in my left shoulder , arm, and back, as well as in my chest. I have also had episodes of severe heartburn that last for hours. I was admitted to the ER twice because all of my EKGs came out abnormal. They said that they were abnormal but not on the level of having a heart attack . While in the hospital they monitored my heart all night, took blood multiple times, checked BP and pulse , ran an echo, and did a CT of my heart. All of the tests came back normal other than the EKGs. I am having an upper GI endoscopy tomorrow to see if I have GERD or something else related to my digestive system. I also have a follow up appointment with a cardiologist on Thursday. My concern is that it could still be heart related. My dad had a heart attack in his 50s that was because of some plaque falling off and my grandmother had a couple of minor heart attacks in her 80s and 90s. Other than that, I don t think anyone else in my family has had heart issues. I am not the healthiest person when it comes to exercise and food. Lately, I have been sticking to a low salt low fat diet. I plan to start exercising a little bit today as well. As I said, my concern is that it could still be heart related as I do have a very high stress job (teaching). Also, I don t smoke and I rarely drink (I did drink a lot in college). What are the odds that it could be related to my heart?

I have squeezing pressure in the center of my chest and feel in my back as well. The pressure is constant and is more compressed when I sit with my back leaned, or pressed up against something (more pressure is felt here) or lye down. I went to an urgent care facility and the doctor told me nothing, during the examination, pointed to any direct cause and my heart, lungs and belly appeared fine. An EKG was performed as well and was normal. I am quite concerned because this feeling is felt through out the course of the day and never goes away. Can you give me an idea of what could be the cause?

I'm suffering from possible anxiety attacks where my heart beat increases and my breathing stops while I'm asleep. This has been an ongoing problem for the last year and a half and it's beginning to worry me during the day. If i am in a lecture hall at Univeristy and it goes quiet, i fear that I am going to have some sort of heart attack as the pain in my chest hurts. I'm only 18 but my father and grandfather have both suffered from heart attacks. What do I need to do?
