Dear Concerned,

This is all because of Anxiety as mentioned above by Dr Rakhi. Do consult Homoeopathic Pychology Medicine Specialist for the same. It will be helpful.

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
You are most likely having an anxiety disorder. The fast beating of heart as such is not A DISEASE AS LONG AS THE RHYTHM is normal and regular. For your satisfaction you can get an ECG done. Fast respiration is always associated with faster heart rate.

Hi. I am 20 years old, and I think something is wrong with my heart. Sometimes without a reason it starts beating very fast. And everytime when I see something that upsets me, it starts beating very fast too. I have no idea why. And I m starting to get scared. What s wrong with it? I red on the internet that this may be a sign of depression. Is that the reason?

My heart used to beat really fast for no reason when i used to sleep, this was a either a year ago i think. It used to be like only 4 times. It went away but than it started to beat really fast for no reason. I know it s not anxiety because i would sit on my computer and it would beat fast for a few seconds than go away, it happens pretty often but i didn t think it was a big deal. I want to know what s the cause for it, im only 15 years old, and i don t think i have high blood pressure because my doctor never mentioned i did and yeah. Is this a temporary thing ? I really want to know, is it a big deal? Please help ! I ve heard people get it having attacks for about 5 minutes, am i going to be like that? HELP please!

My boyfriend is only 18 years old and in shape but im worried about his heart . Sometimes his heart will start to beat so hard and fast that i can feel it in his chest without even trying. It has happend 3 times since augest. While he sleeps his heart pumps extra hard and the artery in his neck bulges out and he doesnt even notice it. He thinks he is to young to go see a doctor about his heart.

For the past 4 days, my blood pressure has been running anywhere from 130/95 to 120/102. My blood pressure is usually normal (typically 120/78 or so). I have high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease & am 51. What I don t understand is the numbers being close together. My last reading was 119/102.

I am a 44 year old male with a family history of hyperlipidemia and heart disease. My father had a AMI at age 50 and expired. His father expired at age 51 with an AMi. Both were sudden death. I had a Cardiac CTA yesterday which revealed a calcium score of 252. The report revealed a 70-80% blockage to the middle of the LAD with about 50% occlusion on both of the ends. Seeing a cardiologist tomorrow. What do you think the treatment will be for this?

I recently had an ECG after an abnormal EKG. The ECG showed vent. rate 108bpm Sinus tachycardia, PR interval 158 ms, possible left atrial enlargement, QRS duration 88 ms , nonspecific ST abnormality, QT/QTc 368/493 ms, abnormal ECG, P-R-T axes 70 48 58 and prolonged QT. The cardiologist didn t seem very concerned and felt the abnormality was because of the medication I was taking - remeron for sleeping; I suffer from chronic insomnia. I have been on this medication for over two years and have never had any side effects or problems with it. In the past three-four months, however, I have been experiencing chest pains, some severe which is why I went to my physician to get the first EKG which showed a fast heart beat and was referred to the cardiologist for an ECG, EKG and a stress test. I was only on the treadmill for maybe 4 1/3 minutes before I experienced SOB and chest pains. They repeated the ECG and I was told it was abnormal and to discuss my medications with my psychiatrist and that I had nothing to worry about. When I see abnormal ECG, EKG and am taking nitro tablets with a family history of heart disease (father COPD, CHF and angioplasty; grandfather died of a heart attack), I have a tendency not to believe the doctor. I have not even been contacted by my physician for a follow-up visit. Should I be concerned. Cancer also runs in my family; my father died of colon, liver CA and I am breast cancer survivor. I d appreciate your comments. Should I seek another opinion? Thanks, Mary Kopco YYYY@YYYY I am a 61 y.o. white female, 137 lbs w/ hx of cancer (bilateral mastectomy and hysterectomy for CA of uterus), osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, high cholesterol (328), allergic to any statin drugs, being treated with Zetia 10 mg 1 x/day. Presently taking nitro tabs for chest pain, oxybutityn for overactive bladder, clonazepam 1mg 3x/day for anxiety and depression. I look forward to your response. Thank you.
