It could be a number of things. Has he been drinking caffeinated beverages such as energy drinks or too much coffee during the day? Is he on any new medications? If you're quite worried, go to emerge to have him assessed.

I was diagnosed with a very minor heart murmur during my senior year in high school, just 6 years ago. I ve never had any issues with it. Never been affected by it. No doctor previously or after has ever heard or mentioned it. Recently I started taking Percocet after wisdom tooth extraction. I noticed when it first started kicking in, it made my heart beat very oddly. Not pounding or racing, but it definitely felt weird and uncomfortable. I ve used medical marijuana and muscle relaxers before for work injuries and they never made my heart feel like that. Is it something to be concerned about or just a normal side effect of the Percocet?

I am a 24 and a half year old white female with 3 children ages 4 and under. My heart rate is normally on the higher side when I am pregnant and that s pretty much the only time I ever check it. But I ve been checking it a lot the past few days and every time it s been between 101-109bpm. Even after just waking up after sleeping. Sometimes I do feel like my heart is racing. Is this something I should get checked out by a doctor?
