Heart Palpitations, pain in chest, panic attacks electrolytes r normal cat scan clean resting heart rate 115-120 d-dimer positive no apparent clots???

Propranolol: All of your symptoms would improve with a beta blocker. Propranolol is a good one. Since it requires a prescription, talk it over with your doctor. (ps, as you've probably already realized, a positive ddimer is meaningless unless you have risk factors and clinical suggestion for blood clots. ...Read more

Unilateral low leg swelling w/ distended non varicose vein. Leg throbs after walking up stairs. General squeeze feeling. ABI neg. Is this arterial?

Unilateral low leg swelling w/ distended non varicose vein. Leg throbs after walking up stairs. General squeeze feeling. ABI neg. Is this arterial?

May thurner: many possible reasons. Abi being normal would eliminate arterial disease and usually not swelling. An ultrasound should be used to rule out a deep venous thrombosis. May thrurner syndrome can occur if a clot or major artery sits on top of a vein causing venous swelling. Can occur in women. Hope this helps. Thank you for turning to health top. ...Read more

Atrial fibrillation for 3 years  and swollen ankles..does swollen ankles   mean heart failure? Only breathless climbing stairs.Thanks

One sign of heart fa: Swollen ankles (& increase in water weight) is one sign of heart failure (HF). Being short of breath doing usual activities is another. Atrial fibrillation & heart failure often co-exist: it's a chicken-or-egg debate about which sets of which. But given your description, you should get checked out by a physician (Cardiologist) or use HealthTap Prime to sort this out long-term. HF can be treated! ...Read more

Heart beats hard when stand up and then sit down.heart pounding with minimal exertion.18y old.normal echo ekg holter and renal Doppler studies.causes?

Heart pounding: Your normal ekg and echocardiogram are reassuring that you have a normal heart although coronary arteries are not evaluated in those studies. In your case symptoms appear both postural and with exertion. Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, anemia, hyperthyroidism, low potassium or magnesium come to mind. A cardiologist is best qualified to evaluate you and can order the appropriate tests ...Read more

It appears that you: are taking a beta blocker (Propran.) It is common to feel leg heaviness as a side effect of these medications with exercise. Especially stair climbing. If your auscultation was OK it is probably normal. Routine exercise and stair conditioning may help to reduce or relieve symptoms. ...Read more

Blood Pressure: 117/68
Resting Heart Rate Sitting: 75bpm - 85bpm
Exercise everyday.  Friend's sitting resting heart: 70bpm - 75bpm why? Heart Disease?

Variation: There can be a lot of variation between individuals resting heart rates. In general, the more "fit" you are cardiovascular wise, the lower your resting heart rate will be; so you friend may be a bit more "fit" than you. But in reality that's a very small difference and if many factors may contribute to day to day variations. Neither of those heart rate ranges suggest "heart disease". ...Read more

Hollow chest cavity , racing heart rate, murmur. Related?

Maybe: Pectus excavatum is more common in folks with marfan-like illness, who in turn are more likely to have "barlow" degenerative mitral valve disease which in turn predisposes a person to supraventricular tachycardia. Your physician may give you an rx, but ask also about getting into really good aerobic shape to manage the svt -- generally this works great and may keep you off meds. ...Read more
