There are several causes for palpitations, and the first thing you should do is minimize caffeine in your diet. ...Read more

I woke up with a sour-acidic like taste in my throat. Is this GERD or a heart problem?

I woke up with a sour-acidic like taste in my throat. Is this GERD or a heart problem?

Maybe GERD: Not your heart though. Awakening with a bitter or sour taste in your mouth can be a symptom of reflux, even in the absence of heartburn symptoms. Be sure to not lie down for at least 2 hours after a meal. Alcohol, caffeine, tobacco, acidic foods- all can make this worse. If it's getting worse, having other symptoms, or concerning, see your doctor. ...Read more

Hello doctor, on a few different occasions, I will get a feeling in my throat like I need to burp or something it's my heart not beating during that?

Hello doctor, on a few different occasions, I will get a feeling in my throat like I need to burp or something it's my heart not beating during that?

Palpitation?: I suspect you're feeling a skip in your heart's rhythm. These are common and usually not serious. To be sure, ask your doctor to record your heart rhythm for 24 or 48 hours (Holter monitor). To minimize them, avoid nicotine, caffeine, decongestants, certain antibiotics, and alcohol. Try to get plenty of sleep and minimize stress if you can. ...Read more

Its very hard to breathe, feels like I have a golf ball stuck in my throat and sometimes sore beside my heart, what could it be? Thanks

Anything: Without other symptoms reported, it is hard to direct you to the appropriate treatment or make more or loss right diagnosis. Anxiety which is known to cause the sensation of strangling in the throat and "heart pain" would mostly fit your description, but again, it's only a guess given no detailed history. ...Read more

I get clear mucus in my throat only after I eat and when I lay down to sleep. Can it be caused from my heart. Started when I got severe edema.

Sounds like reflux: Not from your heart at all. Most likely juice from your stomach is coming up "silently" without heartburn. You want to not eat or drink before laying down for at least a few hours. Stay away from acids like lemon, orange juice, coffee etc. ...Read more

I have clear mucus in my throat only when I eat or lay down to sleep. What causes that? Can it be caused from your heart? Started when I got bad edema

Possibly: These could be symptoms of congestive heart failure. The triad of difficulty breathing when laying flat, shortness of breath to exertion, and lower extremity swelling are all classic signs. Moreso still if the breathing is much better shortly after sitting upright. If you are waking up w/in a few hours of going to sleep gasping for breath or choking, this also fits. Only your doc can tell for sure. ...Read more

Whenever I swallow something, I get a burning feeling in my throat and into my chest. Is it a heart issue?

Probably not: This would most likely be "heart burn" which is predominantly an esophageal issue called "pyrosis." decrease foods that aggravate your symptoms and avoid spicy substances, sodas, hot sauce, acidic foods (citrus, etc). There are several otc meds that can help with heart burn too. Seek medical attention if it persists. Best wishes. ...Read more

When my bpm reaches 120/130 I can see my heart beat in my chest with clothes on. I can also feel it in my throat. Is this normal? I also have anxiety

Maybe normal: Sounds like you are experiencing what is called palpitations, an anti anxiety drug may be helpful. EKG and possibly what is called a Holter monitor would be helpful to exclude various abnormal heart rhythms as the cause, in which case a beta blocker drug might be prescribed. Probably normal at your age. ...Read more
