Why is my pulse so fast on my neck could my shunt be having a pulse my head has been hurting all day?

Unclear: A VP shunt does not have a pulse. I am not sure why your pulse is so fast but could be caffeine or anxiety. The head hurting needs to be investigated if very severe. Do you have migraines?

Sore throat, lethargy, x3 days. Ok to breathe/swallow, neg strep & xray, fast pulse. ER gave steroids & motrin for visible epiglottis. Should I worry?

Sore throat: I'm not sure how they saw your epiglottis in the ER, but if they think you have epiglottitis, you should have been hospitalized. Do you have fever? you are likely dehydrating which may cause the fast pulse. Strep is only one test. Were you tested for infectious mono? if there is suspicion of epiglottitis (low prob given no dyspnea or dysphagia) I would suggest coverage for HIB. See your PCP. ...Read more

How do you FEEL?: Individual heart rates vary tremendously and there's almost no science here, though there's a great deal of superstition. How is your blood pressure? I trust you're not taking a medicine as tricky as verapamil to treat a number. Since you're exercising, and I take it have normal exercise tolerance without being interrupted by shortness of breath, I'd urge you to be thankful for good health. ...Read more

Is it normal for the pulse on right side of neck to feel stronger than the left? More apparent in the evening. Rhythm is regular, not too fast.

Something or nothing: Sorry to be equivocal, but this could be something or could be unremarkable. A physical exam with attention to the carotid pulse (on both sides of neck) would be required to evaluate for carotid stenosis--which is narrowing of the inside of vessel usually due to cholesterol buildup found in older patients. In your age, I would consider coarctation of aorta which you would have been born with. ...Read more

Personally: I don't mind & I actually use abbreviations. But I wish you would take a little more care & use proper grammar/English asking your question. It does not show respect for the physician who answers you. I think you need to see an ear nose and throat doctor and be scoped. Possible x-ray = esophagram & done with a physical therapist to study your swallowing mechanics. HRS, M.D., FACC ...Read more
