I checked my heart beat and it said 30 pulse per mins. Am I going to die? I played computer for 1 hours. then i was tired, i stopped and is going to take a rest. suddenly, I feel a bounding pulse(very strong one). the bounding pulse last for more than 10 minutes. and i am scared. so i take out my mum s digital blood pressure monitor. i tried 3 times. and it reads : 1. 87/53 , 54pulse/min 2. 73/51, 31pulse/min 3. 80/59 , 33pulse/min is my heart slowing down?? now i can still feel the bounding pulse. what s wrong with me? Just a few imformation of me. here I am not a regularly exercise person. female 19 yrs old. underweight. Do I have heart problems? BTW i get tired easily. like when I do running exercise with my frds, i am the first one to pant.

1. Never trust a digital B/P cuff, they are notorious for sucking. Your resting pulse may very well be that low.If you don't run, your going to get tired when you do run, it's that simple. You said you were 'underweight' exactly how underweight and why? I'd worry more about your overall health, you know, diet and everything. It's worth seeing a doctor for, but take your b/p readings with a grain of salt. Short answer to your question: your not going to die. There's a good chance you've had a B/P this low and a pulse this low for awhile, but never noticed it. Low heart rates and B/P themselves are not deadly, it's why you have it that could be a problem.

Hi i am 30 year old male who was hospitalized 3 months ago for atrial fib. Had the whole gambit of tests and all seemed ok. I was put on beta blockers then a heart monitor a month later for massive palpations and rapid beat. i was put on another med after to regulate heart rate. Now i still experience palpataions and i can feel when they are about to happen. also extreme fatigue and some weakness. What is the issue here? i do smoke but not massive smoker. I did gain 20 pounds since the hospital stay which i have never been able to do. Wonder what id happenin here.

hi i would like to know what u think about this please. over the last few years i have had a few frightening problems happen then stopped for a year and i thought it had gone but then reoccurred again about 4 months ago let me explain - first started when i was working i went to pick something up and then my heart started to beat really fast and hard for about a minute also couldn’t breath good during the time as started to panic but no chest pain. then if i seemed to cough it would go away this would happen again a few times along a 6 months period but it was always when bending over to pick something. about a year on from that time i had gave up smoking drinking more water trying to eat more healthy as i went hospital many times complaining of dizziness and couldn’t breath good that was the reason I made chances to my life, they did heart monitor test and all seemed ok so the 1 year went on since all the changes and i thought everything was back to normal however about 4 months ago i was driving and bent slightly to grab my steering wheel to pull my self up to get out the car and bang it happen i was so scared and seriously thought i was going to die. i then coughed and tried to stay carm and it went back to normal after about 30 secs. huge fast beats pounding feeling dizzy slightly and i panic. NO PAIN during the times i am trying to figure my self what the hell is wrong i tried to cut out caffeine and increase water intake as i said not smoking or drinking and eating healthier food i was just so disappointed it came back after all this time. but i have noticed now and then i get like a flutter around my side heart area near my ribs and also my pulse seems to flatter on my neck PULSE BUT no pain thou and then last for a min goes back. also when i do get pain in my chest its not at these times but the pain does seem to hurt on pulse beat like heart beat then ok then back every beat to the right hand side but as i said this is on and off between the problems above not during. CAN YOU HELP I AM NOT TO CONCERNED AS ITS BEEN ANOTHER 3 MONTHS AND NOTHING APART FROM THE FLUTTERING WITH IS OK BUT I NOW AND THEM SEEM TO SKIP A BEAT AND THINGS BUT NOT OFTEN WITH THEN CAUSES ME TO COUGH ;-) THAT SEEMS TO BE MY ONLY TRICK BUT SO SCARED THAT IT MAY HAPPEN AGAIN I HONESTLY THOUGHT THAT WAS IT FOR ME I WAS HAVING FLASH BACKS DURING THE TIME OF MY LIFE. ;-( I AM 27 AND SLIM 10ST AND ATHLETIC I EXCERSISE AND DON’T DRIN OR SMOKE AT ALL
