Suffer anxiety (panic attacks), could a fast heart beat lead to sudden death?

Not usually: Folks suffering from panic attacks may often think that they are having a heart attack and call 911 and go to the emergency department where they are told their heart is fine. There are good treatments available for panic disorder. In my practice, i try and control a patient's panic/anxiety symptoms without the use of benzodiazapines like xanax, (alprazolam) as they can be habit forming. ...Read more

Experiencing  rapid heart rate (worsened by: psychological stress) . HR around 115 when I wake up. Excessive sweating while exercise. Reason?

Get seen: The heart rate itself isn't a danger. How much you sweat is personal. You may get a Holtor monitor, labs to screen for a pheochromocytoma, and a good EKG. I'm simply glad that you're exercising. Keep that up. You may well be fine. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can a child die of sudden cardiac arrest without having shown symptoms before death?

Absolutely: However, this is a diagnosis of exclusion, and far less common in babies than an unsafe sleep environment. The channelopathies are a family of illnesses that take the lives of perhaps 4000 people, including kids, in the us each year.

20 years old. Chest pain, especially when lying down. Pale, sweaty, lightheaded. Severe headache. Rapid heart rate that jumps around. ?

Scary: All symptoms point to a the fact that you are having some type of tachy-arrhythmia (fast abnormal heat rhythm).

New onset Cardiomyopathy. Risk for Sudden Cardiac Death and Ventricular Tachycardia.....?

New onset Cardiomyopathy.  Risk for Sudden Cardiac Death and Ventricular Tachycardia.....?

Needs rapid evaluation: Although chronic hypertension is among the most common causes of nonischemic cardiomyopathy, there appears to be no hypertensive history in this case. With an ejection fraction of 20%, sudden life-threatening arrhythmia is a significant risk. An implantable defibrillator must be considered urgently. A Zoll Vest could be considered if there is any delay in implanting a defibrillator. In addition, consideration should be given to a myocardial biopsy to search for an infiltrative cardiomyopathy. Diuretic, beta blocker and vasodilator therapy might be limited by a low blood pressure. If there is a wide QRS, resynchronization with a biventricular pacemaker might help restore ventricular function. The prognosis (and treatment) will be dependent upon the underlying cause of the cardiomyopathy. ...Read more
