Heart beat in my stomach &chest. 1 is fast & the other is slower. I been nervous cause I been thinking I'm pregnant. If I walk long I feel pressure at?

Anxiety and stress: If you were pregnant, you should have different symptoms than 'feeling a heart beat in your stomach'. Fetal heart beats can be heard, generally by the second trimester, by outside devices placed on lower stomach. If you haven't had a physical recently, you should get one. If indicated, your doctor can order an abdominal US to clarify any swelling or source of inflammation in your abdomen. ...Read more

I'm 10weeks pregnant Doc did an ultrasound cause they didn't hear the heart beat The baby is fine but they found a tumor in my uterus doc didn't say much?

Don't worry: More than likely, if there is a "tumor" in your uterus it is what is called a fibroid (leiomyoma). These are very, very common and not cancerous. If it is not very big, it is unlikely to affect your pregnancy, but your OB will probably just keep an eye on it throughout the pregnancy. ...Read more

The best recommendation is to have an ekg done and perhaps wear a 24 hour cardiac (holter) monitor. That will help you and your doctor determine the cause of your rapid heart beat. ...Read more

Dx w/hypothyroid in nov. Took meds, caused chest pains/rapid heartbeat. Stopped taking meds. Still have episodes. Never had b4. I'm scared. 38/f/obese?

Cardiac evaluation: Too much thyroid can cause a fast heartbeat but appropriate doses should not; you might be allergic to one of the ingredients in the meds you took or might be deficient in magnesium or potassium. You might also have a heart problem that is hidden by being hypothyroid so I advise seeing a cardiologist for a cardiac evaluation. Treating your thyroid can help you lose weight. See http://abt.
