Does Being Over Weight Cause Heart Flutter
I got fast heart beat or heart rate without exercising my heart rate is 106 is that normal for my age at 21 can fear cause heart problems?
Could obesity itself cause constant tachycardia(fast heart rate, even resting), heart flutters, and palpitations?
Yes, possibly: But there are also individual responses to consider. Wellbutrin (bupropion) is a possibility that comes to mind, but it will not help anxiety. (you list anxiety on your other information). Lexapro is relatively weight-neutral also, and does not affect bp, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can heart rate of 180 (caught on 14 day loop) still be considered sinus tachycardia? What can cause this if it's not my heart? No exercise/anxiety
Unlikely: Maximum HR is age related. At your age, 180 can be due to sinus tachy but only with reason eg, strenuous exercise, severe pain, anxiety thyroid XS or infection. More likely you have supraventricular tachycardia, a common but pathological condition. Your doctor will discuss treatment options. Meanwhile avoid nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, pseudoephedrine, and recreational drugs. ...Read more
Can Zyrtec (cetirizine) cause the heart to beat more strongly but not increase heart rate? 59 bpm. I can feel the beat more prominently, like it's beating harder.
Can heart attack lead to persistend and unintended weight loss? Can heart desease have a negative impact on metabolism?
How is the heart rate when chest pains occur due to heart problems, high or low or just normal? It should be high though bcoz heart struggles to pump.
Sympathetic nerves: Thyroid hormone stimulates the sympathetic nervous system. Increased sympathetic nervous system activity increases the heart rate. There is also evidence that thyroid hormone acts on the heart muscle directly to increase the strength of contraction and the rate of contraction (makes it beat harder and faster). ...Read more
I have a fast resting heart rate and low blood pressure. Does this mean my heart is not efficient? Could I have heart trouble valve or myopathy?
Can anxiety cause prominent brain ventricles? And does it mess up your heart. I've always had high heart rate.
No and no: No, anxiety does not cause prominent brain ventricles. It can increase your heart rate, but it doesn't "mess up" your heart. Some people with anxiety attacks have been found to have mitral valve prolapse (mvp), but this does not come from anxiety. Mvp usually causes no symptoms or hemodynamic problems unless severe -- in which case, a cardiologist would be helping you. ...Read more
What can cause the feeling of rapid heart rate (not going over 100) and a adrenaline (nervous/excited) feeling in chest and abdomen? Not anxious!
My ECG and blood work are normal but my resting heart can get as low as 41 when sitting. Can a prolonged sedentary lifestyle cause bradycardia?
Dysautonomia - MVP : Possibly due to low resting energy requirements. You may have dysautonomia which is associated with mitral valve prolapse syndrome - neither are usually life threatening but both cause patients anxiety about their symptoms. Read dr. Richard hoffman's book on mvp on amazon.Com. Increase fluid intake, try magnesium supplements. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Slow heart rate when sleeping. My "resting heart rate" is 59. But, while sleeping, it drops to 44 or even 38. Is this ok? Some Fatigue, otw healthy.
Heart rate and strenght of the beats changes dramatically according to my breathing. Is this normal? (16 yo and not very sporty but also not unhealty)
I've been dealing with rapid heart beats (100-110bpm) that is not constant and I also have the occasional skipping of heart beats. Pathological?
I have inappropriate sinus tachycardia i'm on no medication and resting heart rate above 100 and slight movement to over 130 will it cause damage?
What can cause fast fluttering in chest that is not heart related? The fluttering does not match my slow hr.. I can even feel the palps in my arms.
Obese with a resting heart rate that goes down to 50bpm. I heard that is not normal, and may indicate heart blockage or MVP. HR elevates to 140bpm when exercising. Ekg's, stress, blood ( troponin I < 0.02) X-ray are normal. What could be wrong?
For a 27 year old: woman the normal heart rate can vary between 40 and180 BPM. What you heard (HR<50 concerning) is just that, hearsay! That heart rate is not associated with either heart blockage or MVP. It is unlikely there is anything wrong as it sounds like you have been thoroughly evaluated. ...Read more
