Recreational drug use - cocaine can also cause this along with recent use of pseudoephedrine for nasal congestion may also cause this. I would await the EKG and ask for a CBC, basic metabolic profile and a TSH for lab ...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?

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

Normal heart rate: This is a normal heart rate for a 5 and half years old child. Now a common reason for fast heart rate in children is fever, common colds and dehydration.

In meantime, avoid walnuts and other nuts till you are tested. ...Read more

After harder run, felt like my heart skipped a beat twice-rhythm was regular except for the 2 skips & when they happened it felt like my throat closed?

Likely just benign: Palpitations. Basically we all have some "extra" heart beats here and there (premature atrial contractions and premature ventricular contractions). For the most part they are of limited significance. But if you notice this happening frequently, like daily or multiple times per day or lasting for longer than a beat here or there, you should be evaluated in person by your doctor. ...Read more

Only a checkup with your doc could assess your heart. ...Read more

A deep dull pain in the upper left side of your chest, (right above the heart), can be felt to the throat?, (concerned)

Further work up: If this pain comes with exertion such as walking or climbing stairs then you should think of it as angina or pain coming from blockage of the arteries of the heart. You would need some form of stress test to see if it is coming from the heart. Also if you have Nitroglycerin tablets then next time you get chest pain, try taking ntg under the tongue. If the pain is relieved in a few minutes then it su. ...Read more
