Hi thanks for using HCM.

With history of chest pain and dizziness need to get complete physical examination and few test CBC, ECG, chest x-ray, ECHO cardiogram, thyroid profile.

Try to keep active. Regular exercise, yoga and pranayama and healthy diet helps you.

doctor1 MD

Hi,

Nicotine from cigarettes can cause increased heart best and put pressure on the heart. Even passive smoking, that is, inhaling the smoke exhaled by others, exposes the body to nicotine and other harmful substances present in smoke. That is probably why you feel the same symptoms when others...

Hi,I had been having minor chest pains and sometimes fast heartbeat when thinking about heart attack. I had been to the doctor and he said that theres nothing wrong with my lungs and that it s probably inflammation of the rib cage.Shouldmi still be worried?The doctor didn t do any test on me other than listening to my heart

doctor1 MD

I have SVT but my episodes are typically few and short lived. For the past two weeks my heart rate has been fairly consistently over 100 and also raises/drops quickly. (114-90-110...) I have been tired, short of breath and unable to lower my heart rate by myself and make it last for more than a few minutes before it raises again. My fingers are also blueish and swollen around the nails. I am frustrated and not sure what to do. I see a Cardiologist in a week but I haven t been able to sleep much and have been having chest pain and lightheadedness more than I am used to.

Hi, I am a 43 year old female that smokes!!! I have been having a few health problems in the last 2 years. It all started 2 years ago when I got bloodwork done and my Doctor told me my blood sodium level was a point below normal, she told me to drink gatorade to restore my level. Eventually the symptoms associated with low sodium levels went away. Then last year I went to her with similar symptoms and more bloodwork was done, the results were that I had Hypothyroidism and a B12 deficiency, she put me on synthyroid 100mcg and 1000 mcg of vitamin B12 pills. I made her do more bloodwork 3 months later and things were looking up. In May of last year I was feeling lousy and went to the emergency room because I was having palpations and they found my synthroid dose was too high and lowered it to 88mcg, after a while I started feeling better. I told the emergency room doctor about heart problems running in my family so they ordered a stress test which came back good, they told me I wouldn't have a heart attack from blocked arteries. When I told my family doctor (years ago) about the heart problems in my family she told me " you don't need to worry about that because it doesn't affect women until menopause" and wouldn't send me for any tests!!!!!! In December 2013 I began having palpations, so I asked the doctor for more bloodwork and everything came back within normal levels, at that time I showed her that I was having edema in my ankles, she checked my blood pressure which was 117/74, my heart rate was 88, so she sent me for an E.C.G. It supposedly showed that everything was normal except my resting heart rate at that time was 92 b.p.m, so my doctor put me on 150mg of Rythmol 2 x a day. On the 25th of January I called 811 (nurses hotline for health inquiries), they patched me through to 911 who immediately dispatched an ambulance because my symptoms sounded like a heart attack!!! When the paramedics did an E.C.G on me it showed I was in sinus tachycardia and left atrial enlargement, the E.R doctors put in a request for a holter monitor and an echocardiogram. I saw my doctor on the following Monday and she said she "doesn't believe it's my heart" and gave me anti-anxiety meds. With all the things I have just told you what else could it be? Even with the Rythmol I am still having light-headedness, edema, breathlessness, occasional chest pains and fast heart rate; this morning it was 110b.p.m, now though my blood pressure is dropping yesterday it was 107/68. It normally has been pretty close to 120/80. What do you suggest?
