Heart goes into weird rythm when I lay on my right side or towards right side. Goes away when sit up. Sometimes goes away and comes back while laying?

Heart goes into weird rythm when I lay on my right side or towards right side. Goes away when sit up. Sometimes goes away and comes back while laying?

Probably not worry: Dear DenaS: There are physiologic changes in the volume the heart manages with changes in position but usually we don't feel these changes. Some people, however, have significant "heart awareness" and feel changes in how fast the heart beats when everybody else doesn't. I would not be concerned unless you feel chest pain/dizzy. I hope this makes you feel better. ...Read more

Hr after exercise: It depends how much you are in shape. Is it the first day of exercise after being not so active for a long time. And also what is your bSeline HR before the exercise. Usually no it does not take that long for hr to return to normal -10-15 min of resting should make you very comfortable, drinking fluids also help. If you have any concerns or not feel right after the exercise, see your PCP and ...Read more

Depends: There are many types of arrhythmias that can give palpitations. On the same token palpitations can be caused by fear, caffeine, stress, drugs, medicines, diet pills, etc. Best approach is to document heart rate and rhythm of the heart while it is occurring. A dr.

Is it possible that cardioversion correct an abnormal heart rythm due to prolonged pr interval?

Is it possible that cardioversion correct an abnormal heart rythm due to prolonged pr interval?

In general no: If the heart rhythm problem is any type of heart block (first degree av block, second degree av block, or complete heart block), cardioversion won't help. Having said that, certain types of cardiac rhythm problem (such as atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (avnrt)) can in rare cases look like a fast heart rhythm with a long pr interval. These a cardioversion could correct. ...Read more

Why do I have to stay on pradaxa for life if my heart is in rythm? Why not just take asprin?

Why do I have to stay on pradaxa for life if my heart is in rythm? Why not just take asprin?

Depends: If you are on pradaxa, it is likely you have atrial fibrillation. If your heart pops in and out of this rhythm, it is called paroxysmal a fib - counterintuitively, this is actually more dangerous than constant afib. Depending on your other medical factors (diabetes, hypertension, age, heart disease, and history of stroke), the risk of future stroke may be high enough to need Pradaxa or warfarin. ...Read more

Hello, is it dangerous to have a 115 heart record, althu my doctor did an echo and a rythm record and both are healthy and clear?

Hello, is it dangerous to have a 115 heart record, althu my doctor did an echo and a rythm record and both are healthy and clear?

Probably not: The normal resting pulse varies from 50 to 90, though generally toward the lower end. A resting pulse of 115 is unusual. You should be checked for anemia and overactive thyroid. If these are normal and you feel fine, I would not worry. There are conditions where the heart rate is always too fast that can be treated with beta blockers if you have symptoms such as lightheadedness. ...Read more

Sometimes I feel my heart beating on my left chest and also my stomach moves with the rythm of heart beat. My hr is normal (60-80). is it normal?

This is most noticeable while lying on your left side.

Feel irregular rythm and palpitations lying on right side. Why right side when heart is on left? Don't suffer from anxiety. Pounding sensation up stairs

See answer: Palpitations is the word patient use to describe a fluttering sensation in the chest caused by skipped heart beats or rapid heartbeats. Patients with no heart disease can often experience palpitations. Sometimes they are brought on by anxiety, fatigue, caffeine and cough and cold medicines. Beta blockers are sometimes prescribed if the palpitations are annoying or very frequent. SEE bit. Ly/1vlj5 ...Read more

What do you mean by Holter monitor has only one lead but the ECG have 12 leads. How does one lead pick up ischemic changes of the heart rythm. (F/up) previous question?

What do you mean by Holter monitor has only one lead but the ECG have 12 leads. How does one lead pick up ischemic changes of the heart rythm. (F/up) previous question?

Lead, in EKG terms,: Refers to electrical viewpoint, not the physical number of electrical connections. E.g. the typical single lead Holter connects to two electrodes on the skin plus a third used as an electronic ground to improve signal to noise ratio given the tiny voltages being recorded. Holters are not designed to detect ischemia, only heart rhythm. 12 EKGs can detect signs of ischemia but miss most disease. ...Read more

Recently my heart rythm is irregular. Sometimes it gets bad enough that I feel weak and dizzy. I also have anxiety attacks sometimes. What should I do?

See a clinician: These issues may be related, but they may not be. Without any more information about you, impossible to judge, but if you are getting weak and dizzy it could possibly be serious. You need at the least a baseline EKG when feeling fine, and in case you have another attack you should then have it repeated. Good luck! ...Read more

Isuffer from irregular heart rythm due to flatulence dyspepsia. Any remedies please?

Dyspepsia: If you know for sure flatulence/dyspepsia is something that causes your arrhythmia, then you should focus on treating this condition. Identify and avoid foods known to cause/aggravate your dyspepsia/flatulence. There are certain medications that may also help, such as simethicone. Eat smaller and more frequent meals and make sure you drink plenty of fluids, preferably water to flush yourself well. ...Read more

Why was my heart beating weird for a short time?

Why was my heart beating weird for a short time?

Arrhythmia: It can be a sign of an abnormality in the electrical pathway and is cause for evaluation. Abnormal rapid heart rates can range from 100 beats a minute up to 400 beats a minute and can be relatively harmless or life threatening. Ask your doctor to refer you to a heart rhythm specialist (an electrophysiologist), for further evaluation. Call 911 if passing out, dizziness, chest pain, or breathless. ...Read more

Sometimes I get weird shocking pains in my heart im only 21 what could this mean?

No simple answer: At age 21, few serious medical problems can cause the kind of pain you describe. But most chest pain in a young health person is not life threatening. If otherwise completely normal, u r probably ok. But, you can't figure this out on your own. Find a doctor you trust & go in for evaluation (history, physical exam & any necessary testing) to figure it out. Don't put off your evaluation! Dr.Mike. ...Read more

Why does my heart keep feeling really weird like a dropping sensation (really slow)?

Why does my heart keep feeling really weird like a dropping sensation (really slow)?

Skipping: Your heart is skipping beats. When that occurs, the average heart rate as determined over 15 seconds appears to be slow although that's artifactual. Avoid nicotine and caffeine. Minimize stress and get plenty of sleep. If it persists, testing such as a 24 hour recording, serum electrolytes, and an echocardiogram would be reasonable tests to further investigate it. ...Read more
