Is It Normal For Your Heart To Skip A Beat After Masturbation
Masturbation can cause heart problems? When I masturbate I have noticed that my heart tends to speed up a lot and even skip a beat sometimes. Is this a serious problem that I should be worried about? I'm a 17 year old male.
Probably fine: It's normal for masturbation to cause rapid heart rate, and the occasional skipped beat when it's going that fast. The sympathetic nervous system is activated, essentially the fight or flight response. Hormones are kicked into gear to get that going, and those drive the heart as well. Unless you have documented heart disease, at 17 you should be fine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: If you're having a run of beats that are clearly abnormal and take your breath away, check with your physician -- if this is the case, it's probably not happening just during this activity. Up to five skipped beats per minute is usually a non-problem. Sexuality is powerful -- if just the thought of someone makes your heart skip a beat, I'm hoping you meet that person in real life. Best wishes! ...Read more
Maybe?: Let's assume that this question is serious for the moment. The next logical question would be whether palpitations also occur with other types of exertion. If so, it's possible that you have a supraventricular tachycardia. If these palpitations only occur while masturbating, I wouldn't worry too much. There aren't a whole lot of (any) arrhythmias that occur only with this particular activity. ...Read more

Costal chondrites: Inflammation occurs at place where rib joins the breast plate. If you press on this location the pressure of palpation arouses exquisite pain. This localized and arousable pain indicates that the pain is not from the heart. If it persists a small cortisone injection can work wonders. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is it normal to feel heart palpitations or heart skip beat/pause when laying on left side (side of heart) I only notice some when I'm in this position?
Yes: If you lay on your left side, your heart actually sits right on your chest wall, and it is much easier to feel/sense your heartbeat, which might have occasional skipped beats. ...Read more

PVC's?: "skipped beats" are most commonly a result of premature atrial (pac's) or ventricular contractions (pvc's). Sleep deprivation, caffeine, peri-menstrual, anxiety, stimulants, and hypertension can lead to pvc's. Hypertension is unusual at 18 years old. Nearly everyone gets pac's and pvc's, whether they are aware or not. Takes >pvcs10, 000/day may cause heart damage. Follow-up nausea/sob with doc. ...Read more

Yes: For the first 1-2 weeks following a catheter ablation, palpitations or a sense that the heart is beating irregularly, is common and are likely secondary to irritation of the heart from the ablation procedure. These symptoms are typically very brief. Symptoms of longer duration may represent recurrence of the arrhythmia for which the ablation was undertaken. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can a cardiac MRI miss scarring on the heart? Is it possible to see scarring during an EP study but have a normal cardiac MRI?
Yes; depends on size: The cardiac MRIs have inherent limits of resolution, so problems with anatomy below a certain size do not show up on the scans. The EP is a functional study - testing how the heart functions (electrically). While the EP doc gets a good idea of where the irritability is (based on position of the electrodes), it's primarily meant to capture & fix the electrical rhythm, not diagnose a myocardial scar ...Read more
