Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your boyfriend 's situation and problem.
We need to first rule out allergy to PICC line.
PICC line is made up of plastic and latex material.
So in some patients, this material can cause delayed allergic reaction after 48-72 hours....

For the past 2 years I ve been having this fast beating heart. It beats even when I am sitting or laying down. And it s starting to interfere with my life because I get so tired that I can t do anything. Sometimes it beats so fast that it causes me to have a panic attack. So I was wondering what it may be and how I can fix it. Plus I have heard of these things that are called Beta Blockers, I was wondering if they could be used for my condition. And I m 15 by the way, so it shouldn t be any severe heart problems or anything.

Hi, I had one episode where i felt my heart had trouble beating and felt like I was going to pass out, as soon as I stood up it went away and my heart was beating fine. I went right to the doctor and he said my heart sounded fine and that it was a panic attack. I was not convinced so I went back to another doctor and he said it sounded great!!! Do doctors really know if something is wrong by just listening to the heart? Since then, which was 2 weeks ago I have had no problems. Thank you Crystal
