What kind of heart palpitations could possibly cause a heavy heart beat and throbbing in the back of the neck? Echo shows Ok heart structure.

Sorry to frustrate: I know you're asking about cardiac conditions. I don't think it was a mistake to investigate - but it is a mistake to persist if there is a null result - especially at your age. Be reassured. Instead - consider a really skilled Health Psychologist who can teach you how to take your health seriously w/out anxiety and unneeded procedures. It can be the best way to feel better. Worth a try! ...Read more

Sometimes I have strange, heavy heart beat that makes want to cough, but it's not really coughing, (1year ago pulm HTN42.7mmHg), what're possibilities?

Palpitations: I suspect that you're experiencing premature heart beats. If they are occurring, you would note an irregularity of your pulse when they occur. A physician can examine you, order an EKG and outpatient Holter Monitor which can document and identify these extrasystoles (premature atrial or ventricular beats) if they are causing your symptoms. Extrasystoles may be related to pulmonary hypertension. ...Read more

I've been experiencing abnormally extreme fatigue over the past few weeks, combined with difficulty concentrating and heavy heart beat while resting.?

What's been going on: You may know the situations in your life that can explain these symptoms. But in any case, it might make sense to have a rule-out physical exam so you can avoid worry about your heart. And seek a good referral to a therapist to learn ways to reduce/deal with stress. If the therapist has further concern they'll refer for tests/Rx's. ...Read more

Heart beat feels like every thump is heavy & forceful like it's really pumping hard, but I checked my heart rate with a pulsoxy an it's 79BPM causes?

May be true?: You need an echocardiogram. If you have certain valvular issues, (e.g. severe aortic insufficiency or severe mitral regurgitation) or a rare entity called "hypertrophic cardiomyopathy", you may be feeling an unusually forceful heat beat. Alternatively, you may have "cardiac awareness." An echo will sort this out. The treatments are different. ...Read more

Does Lipozene weight loss drug cause rapiod heart beat?

Does Lipozene weight loss drug cause rapiod heart beat?

No: Lipozene is a dietary fiber supplement. Taking it is equivalent to eating a bowl of All-Bran. It does not cause rapid heart beat. However, paroxysmal atrial tachycardia is a very common entity. IF you're frequently troubled with it, see your doc for an accurate dx. PS, dieting can cause low potassium which increases the incidence of all cardiac arrhythmias - get your electrolytes checked! ...Read more

I take pradaxa. Will a steroid shot to relieve back pain interact? The pradaxa is for an irregular heart beat. The lower back pain was caused when I lifted something too heavy.

Caution: Any blood thinner and what I assume is an epidural steroid injection you are referring to is a serious matter. Pradaxa is a relatively new drug and not everybody knows about it like Coumadin (warfarin) or heparin. The timing of stopping and restarting this medication with respect to a spinal injection is very important. Bleeding into the spinal space could cause permanent injury if done wrong. ...Read more

Heart beat is abnormal. One is heavy and next is weak. Is this normal?

No: Varying heartbeats could mean that you are having an arrhythmia (ie that all the heartbeats are not being generated by the usual pacemaker in your heart). Sometimes this can happen in a normal heart, but it can also mean some kind of heart disease (such as coronary artery disease) or that something is stimulating your heart (such as drugs, alcohol, an overactive thyroid, etc). See your md! ...Read more

I am 74 years old. My heart started a double heart beat and continued for about 2 hours. What causes this condition? What should I do?

Investigate: At your age, the number of causes are numerous. Bigeminy (double beats) is not a dangerous rhythm disturbance but can be a call to action for you. I would want to see a chest xray, echo, stress test and routine blood work in addition to hearing about potential symptoms you may have and not recognize. I would want to examine you. ...Read more

My heart beat like when someone is catch doing something bad and the person heart beat fast or it cut or something Dnt kw the cause of it?

Abnormal: You are describing palpitations in which the heart is beating abnormally fast - this may be an intermittent, abnormal rhythm disturbance (called "PAT" or "SVT"). You need to ask your doctor to order a heart monitoring test for you. Depending on how often you have these symptoms, you will need 24 or 48 hour recording or even one up to 30 days. Once diagnosed, it can be treated. ...Read more

Have BP 130-150/70 BPM 50-65. Is this too low a heart beat rate? Am 68 yr old female. Have BP that varies 130-150/70 and heart rate 50-65. Is this too low a heart beat rate? I exercise a lot and have weight under control; lacto/ovo veg diet with some fi

Your: Your BP should be closer to 130/70, systolic BP of 150 is too high. You can try decreasing the salt in your diet, or you may need a change in medication. Also note that a common side effect is diovan (valsartan). As far as your heart rate is concerned, less than 60 is considered low, however if you are physically fit, your resting heart rate can be low. It sounds like your cardiac wrk up was completely negative therefore I don't feel your heart rate is an issue. I would focus on getting better control of your bp. Please follow up with your doctor.
All the best. ...Read more
