i was unable to fly due to a heart problem

i was unable to fly due to a heart problem / panic attack? Lately i ve been having long-term pain in my chest, it doesn t come and go, i am taking medication for panic attacks, but when i tried to fly today my heart beat went up around 200bpm, i had chest pains, difficulty breathing and they wouldn t allow me to fly. i get this feeling anytime i get nervous or even just excited (like about a birthday!!) the doctor has me on a 24 hour heart monitor, what do you think is the problem? i m young, not pregnant, dont smoke, dont drink often. just i ve already been to the doctor and have medication for panic attacks, also been through therapy. but the pain in my chest is constant. say for half of every week/ i m trying to say i have pain even without anxiety. fear or stress seems to add to it, but i also get something when i m relaxed, just walking along.

I am 16 years old and already a few days my heart palpitations. Do not get stressed, do not drink any alcohol, not smoke. This may indicate a heart pounding heart disease ? In the four years I was sent to theÿ echocardiography without cardiac problems only preventive pediatrician that due to my hydrocephalus exclude hypoplastic heart syndrome. This syndrome was excluded by echocardiography. If these my current heart problems (palpitations at rest) meant something more serious, followed by heart surgery ? Thanks

Hello my mom has been getting heart burns due to the gas in her stomach. When she is unable to burp or let out the gas she gets extreme heart burns where she feels like she s about to fall. After she burps, she feels a little better. This has been going on for about 6 months and she went to every hospital around the area and went to a specialist as well but they can t classify the problem into any type of condition. They just keep saying it s due to gas but that s not helping. She changed her diet as well to exclude spices and such. She doesn t get any abdomen pain, it s just that heartburn thats bothering her. If there s anyway to relieve it or stop the gas, i would greatly appreciate it if you let me know. Thankyou :)
