I experienced today while running at approximately 10mph a sudden jump in my heart rate. It happened at approximately 3/4 of a mile. It went from a steady 155bpm at this pace to over 200bpm. It peaked out at 228bpm when I got light headed and had to slow down. I had to drop to a walk to get my heart rate to begin to come back down. It felt very uncomfortable and the rhythm felt wrong and erratic. After my heart rate reached the low 190bpm range it suddenly dropped back down to 160 and it felt like it had resumed a normal rhythm and then very quickly leveled off to 115bpm before I resumed running at a slow pace. I have a tested max heart rate of 192bpm and a resting heart rate of 44bpm. I m 25 years old. I was wearing a heart rate monitor when this happened. Should I be concerned that this could kill me?

Hey, I was diagnosed with an eating disorder and the effects were secondary amenorrhea and bradycardia. My resting rate rate then was 45 and they said it could be reversed but I was wondering if it was possible to reverse it in a week? I ve been following their orders of eating more for about 5 days now and my resting heart rate is between 70-80 every time I check it.

I had a herpetic whitlow - sp? which caused lymphangitis, or red streaking up my hand and arm - about the same time, my heart started beating irregularly and I went on a 7 day course of Keflex. While on the Keflex, my heart was fine. The minute I went off the Keflex, the palpitations came back. I ve worn a heart monitor and was told that 2% of my heartbeats are extra but what I feel is that there is some sort of infection at play here even though my bloodwork has come back normal. Thoughts?

My name is Jennifer. I am a 41 year old female, 5 9 , 125 LB. Over the past 10 years I have had symptoms of arrhythmias , chest pain, breathing problems (inability to breath deeply), coughing and severe hoarseness usually coinciding with the other problems. It seems to be getting slowly worse as I get older. I sleep sitting up. If I lay down I risk waking up with significant chest pain, choking and arrhythmias. I tried to get a diagnosis in my 30 s but no one found the source of my problem before I lost my insurance and stopped pursuing it. I recently went to a chiropractor and had x-rays taken. There is significant compression and misalignment between C3 and C4. There is also some arthritic changes between these vertebrae. I used to break horses when I was in my early 20 s and at one point directly fell on my head and was knocked out. I assume that is what caused this particular injury. My question is could this injury be causing the arrhythmias, chest pain, breathing problems and hoarseness? I know you can t answer with certainty I am just curious if it is a possibility. Thank you for your time, Jennifer
