Had strong bounding pulse for months then today woke up and could not feel pulse as strong. Bpm was 58, normal BP 21 yrs old. Did heart correct itself?

Given your young age, it is likely benign, but should get an exam to evaluate. Constant chest pain is less likely to be heart related. Consider seeing a cardiologist or primary care physician for further evaluation. Severely worsened symptoms may warrant more urgent evaluation. ...Read more

Why is it with minimal activity, my heart races? Ekg normal, I do have strong bounding pulse.

The most common cause in our society is probably deconditioning. If no other symptoms than fast heart rate, and all else checks out, incr. Exercise. ...Read more

It should remain palpable though and the hand should remains well supplied with blood. ...Read more
