Tachycardia: Very rapid heart rate with difficulty breathing sound consistent with a tachycardia, most likely a supraventricular tachycardia (svt).

Good: Good morning, your inhaler and nebulizer medications (depending on which type they are) often can make you feel jittery and can make your heart beat faster. However, you are having difficulty breathing, that is quite another matter. Please let your parents know right away. I recommend that you be seen at the emergency room as your pneumonia may have taken a turn for the worse. ...Read more

When I lay down my heart seems to beat hard, and I have difficulty breathing, like there's a weight on my chest. I also get hot.?

Get tests: This can be an irregular heart beat, which can be serious. If you are very overweight, it can be the weight of your body pressing down on your chest, but in either case more needs to be checked into to find out the cause and get treatment if possible. Please see your doctor, and if your weight is normal, get a holter monitor to check for irregular beats. If it is up, get tested for sleep apnea. ...Read more

My girlfriend sometimes gets a pain in her heart and she says it feels uncomfortable on her left side plus when it happens she has trouble breathing.?

One of the: "rules" we learn early on in Medical School is that when patient's say "I have a pain in my heart" it is almost NEVER HEART DISEASE! That's because true heart pain is generally chest pain PLUS. .....a number of other symptoms which make it pretty unmistakable. What you describe sounds more like ANXIETY/HYPERVENTILATION. ..a visit to the Primary Care Doc is indicated! Hope this helps!
