Regarding palpitations, people frequently DO feel this as a fluttering sensation in their chest. Sounds like you should see your primary doctor for an evaluation, the timing of the appointment being based on the severity and duration of the symptoms. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Swollen lymph nodes on rt side of neck, 4 years. Tonsil stones in my rt tonsil. Constant rt ear & sinus pressure. Slightly swollen tongue. Seen 3 dr!

Is it normal for the pulse on right side of neck to feel stronger than the left? More apparent in the evening. Rhythm is regular, not too fast.

In your age, I would consider coarctation of aorta which you would have been born with. ...Read more
