I have rapid heart beats and my body shakes when I lie down my blood pressure is normal 120/86 and my doctor prescribed blood pressure med my age 28?

Rapid heart rate: I would like to know your exact heart rate (pulse) when you feel that it's rapid. If you or a reliable observer can't determine it accurately, then I recommend that you wear a portable heart monitor (Holter) for 24-48 hours and write down when you have symptoms. Frequently we find no abnormally rapid rate (over90) when the patient feels it's rapid. This is often seen in anxiety states. Discuss with ...Read more

I have difficulty breathing and I can always feel my heart beat it shakes my chest and I saw a cardiologist but he said im fine, I don't feel fine.

See the doc again: Let your doctor know you continue to feel poorly. Did you have a prolonged recording of your heart rhythm that correlated your symptoms with your rhythm? Have you been checked for asthma? Impossible to say what's wrong without knowing test results but, even if "everything is alright", your doc can help with your symptoms. Are you stressed? (Anxiety can cause marked breathlessness). ...Read more
