Is it normal to feel like I am breathing fast in the 3rd trimester?

Is it normal to feel like I am breathing fast in the 3rd trimester?

Depends: As the baby grows, it presses up on the lungs and certain muscles in the ribs relax and you may feel like you are taking shallower breaths more often. But if this happens suddenly or you feel like you are really struggling, you need to see someone right away. Blood clots in the lungs are also more common in pregnancy and can be very serious. ...Read more

im 33 weeks pregnant and and some day i feel like my pulse is fast or i feel like i need more oxygen and that my breathing vari. Is that normal? Thank

Reason for follow up: The abdomen expands, pressing on the diaphram and giving feeling of not being able to take a full breath. If someone's got lung disease this can be bad; mostly just feels bad. Pregnancy increases strain on the heart. And, a huge number of (generally OBVIOUS) serious conditions can cause symptoms of strain on the heart and lungs. These are what are (always) screened for in (every) obstetrical visit ...Read more

Probaby normal: I am assuming you are a thin woman. It would not be unusual to feel the pulse in your abdominal aorta. If you are older and especially if this sensation is new you should check with your doctor to be sure that there is nothing else going on. ...Read more

I am just entering my third trimester of pregnancy and have been experienceing shortness of breath especially while laying down to sleep, is thete anything I can do to make this better? Is it common?

I am just entering my third trimester of pregnancy and have been experienceing shortness of breath especially while laying down to sleep, is thete anything I can do to make this better? Is it common?

Cannot self diagnose: There are simple reasons for this (like big uterus pushing on nearby structures). And there are complex conditions that can cause shortness of breath and can affect mom and baby. Obs want to know if a pregnant woman is having problems so they can check on the wellbeing of her and the baby. Most likely everything is ok, but why wait? Calling an OB could lead to relief of worry and symptoms. ...Read more

My heart beat is around 113 and I feel uncomfortable from a week days. I feel a bit shivering and loss of strength when it occurs? Is anything wrong

My heart beat is around 113 and I feel uncomfortable from a week days. I feel a bit shivering and loss of strength when it occurs? Is anything wrong

See your DR: A resting heart rate of 113 is not normal--you need to see your DR for evaluation. Because it has been going on for the last week, and not getting worse, you prob do not need to go to the ER today, but make the apt to be seen Monday. If you have increased symptoms, or worsening of current symptoms, then call your DR today. ...Read more

I feel like my heart is pounding harder than usual. I notice my heartbeat when I am laying down or just at rest. Not sure what caused this.

Palpitations: When your heartbeat feels unusual and rapid, we call that palpitations. If you have chest discomfort, shortness of breath, lightheadedness or fainting with the palpitations, that's worrisome. It is common to be more aware of cardiac sensations when not distracted by daily activities, and sometimes certain positions make them more noticeable. ...Read more

For 3 days my heart is normal rate but skipping a beat randomly throughout the day. I can feel it and it makes me feel strange. I'm not anxious.

No worries: this might be -if not normal- at least common. All of us skip a few beats. Alarm signs include fainting, or irregular beats that last a minute or longer. If an EKG doesn't detect problems, a Holter monitor might. ...Read more

It : It sounds like you are suffering from ptsd (post traumatic stress disorder) the traumatic event being your husband abusing you. This is very common as a result of domestic violence situations such as yours. My recommendation for you is to seek the care of a medical professional right away. You need intensive counseling as well as screening for depression and anxiety. You may need drug therapy in addition to counseling. If you feel like hurting yourself and/or make a plan to hurt yourself or someone else call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room. I hope you find help soon. ...Read more

I cough first, but then i feel something in my heart like a random heartbeat, sometimes it's the cause of my cough, is this normal?

Likely normal: Occasionally the heart can have an extra beat or series of beats that can cause the symptoms you describe. In most cases it's totally benign. If you drink a lot of caffeine, sleep poorly or are under stress it can make it more frequent. If you are concerned then a doctor visit makes sense. ...Read more

Is it normal to feel like nothing around me is real during an anxiety attack? My heart goes so fast and body burns up. Am on effexor (venlafaxine). What to do?

Panic Attacks: Yes, "derealization" is perfectly normal during a panic attack, although people experience varying symptoms during panic. The best treatment is exposure therapy provided by a center that specializes in treating anxiety disorders. Most independent therapists who treat anxiety do not have this specialized training. You should also consult with your psychiatrist about your medication. ...Read more
