Because I Have Heart Palpitations Does It Mean I Will Get Arryhtymia
Let me clarify for U: When the heart "skips", it's called arrhythmia. When a person feels their heart "skip", it's called palpitations. Sometimes there is arrhythmia with no palpitation (ie, it's not felt). Sometimes there is palpitation with no arrhythmia (ie, a false alarm). Both situations are very common. ...Read more
Palpitations is the symptom, not the diagnosis. They are the 'abnormal awareness of the beating heart'. This can include the heart going to fast, too slow, too hard, irregularly, skipping a beat. The causes are varied eg electrical problems (both sinister and not sinister), extra beats (mostly harmless), anxiety, thyroid problem. If persistent or worrying then get checked for ...Read more
No: You need to be diagnosed to see what the cause of the palpitations are. Many problems simply reveal the palpitations being a symptom and not the real problem. Like thyroid. ...Read more
Heart beating fast.: Palpitations have a number of potential causes. At your age and of course presuming no use of illegal substances, caffein is the most common cause. A very bad heart arrhythmia called atrial fibrillation is also a cause and this does need immediate medical attention. Seek medical advice and an ECG and possible holter monitor. Stop the coffee. ...Read more
Not necessarily...: ...But you should have your palpitations evaluated by a cardiologist, as it may be some form of cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heart beat) which can cause other problems, such as intracardiac blood clots embolizing to other parts of your body or else lower your blood pressure, both of which can cause life-threatening or debilitating problems to other parts of your body ... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No.: Cardiomyopathy is a weakened heart from any of a number of causes; sometimes the cause is not identified. "Heart attack" usually refers to a blocked artery in the heart; that is one cause of cardiomyopathy but is not a result of cardiomyopathy. Many patients with this disease, especially at your age, recover completely, but intensive therapy is required and should be provided by a cardiologist. ...Read more
Depends: Usually these are extra beats from the upper or lower chambers of the heart. However, this symptom could represent other heart rhythm abnormalities. If the heart is otherwise normal they are usually benign. A holter monitor or event recorder can help capture your heart rhythm during symptoms to precisely determine the cause of palpitations. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Technically it may be called arrhythmia but it is very common. It is normal to have at least five extra beats per minute. Just to make sure you don't have anything else i would get an EKG and consider a holter monitor but sometimes simply by listening your heart a physician may diagnose extra beats ( PVC or apc) or atrial or other arrhythmias that may require treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How can I stop ectopic heart beats? Sometimes I get 4 or more a minute. Ecgs have always been normal. I take bisoprolol 1.25 but does nothing really.
May need nothing: Frequency of these premature beats vary widely from person to person, and may be affected by other factors like caffeine intake or stress. Some people report feeling these extra beats, but most don't feel them if they are isolated and infrequent, and if they are isolated and the heart appears healthy, they generally don't need any treatment. ...Read more

If I have high blood pressure, will i get heart disease? My doctor told me I have pre-hypertension. I know i may develop high blood pressure, but does this mean i will develop heart disease too?
Increases the risk: Hypertension is one of the risk factors for development of heart disease and stroke. Since you are in the pre-hypertension stage right now, it is the time to get BP within normal range. The best way to lower BP is to exercise regularly, maintain low sodium diet, and keep body weight as close to ideal weight as possible. Normal bmi (body mass index) is 18.5-24.5 (there are calculators online). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What happens if I have a heart murmur? My mom told me that i had a heart murmur when i was a baby, does it mean that i will develop heart problems in the future?
No: Heart murmurs are very common. In fact, 60% of all kids have one at this moment. I tell my patients they aren't "cool" unless they have one. That said, the quality or type of murmur is important. Most likely it was an innocent murmur, and means nothing except rapid blood flow through the heart and mild turbulence. Future heart problems would be more related to your genetics and lifestyle. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
