Feel chest pound & it aches, got shortness of breath, heart 105 bpm. I'm18 & 115lbs female i walk 2 mi/day most days. Arises every now&then. Is it ok?

Feel chest pound & it aches, got shortness of breath, heart 105 bpm. I'm18 & 115lbs female i walk 2 mi/day most days. Arises every now&then. Is it ok?

2 miles a day?: If you're able to walk 2 miles on most days, you've eliminated the likelihood of most serious heart conditions. And, unless you were born with a congenital malformation or you use cocaine, significant heart disease would be unlikely in an 18 yo, otherwise healthy woman. Answer: yes, sounds ok! ...Read more

If I have shortness of breath, heart palpatations, feel weak, headachey what's wrong. Heart and blood tests normal but somethings not right any thought?

Go see your doctor: What heart tests? What blood tests? Many reasons for shortness of breath, palpitations, weakness & headaches. Avoid stimulants. If not heart, lung or thyroid, perhaps anxiety? Not enough info so open to too much speculation. Go see your family doc for more testing. ...Read more

Rapid heart beat, shortness of breath, heart defect as a child(but ok now). Should i stop strattera?

Rapid heart beat, shortness of breath, heart defect as a child(but ok now). Should i stop strattera?

Maybe?: Maybe, especially if the symptoms as you describe only arose since starting the straterra. Please discuss this with your prescribing physician. In my opinion and for the most part, no one should stop, start or change their medication regimen based on what is presented here on healthtap in 400 characters or less. Seems unwise at the least and even potentially dangerous. ...Read more

When i get upset my heart beats very rapidly, i get light headed and shaky and it takes hours to feel normal again. It also keeps me from being able to sleep at all if it happens at night...Shortness of breath, heart pounds...It also feels and sounds like

Hello. : Hello. I can not diagnose the cause of your symptoms. It could be consistent with panic attacks. Panic attacks are usually brief. They often last a couple of minutes to around ten minutes. Symptoms can include a sense of severe anxiety or panic as well as chest tightness or pain and a rapid or pounding heartbeat. There could also be areas of numbness or pins and needles type sensation. A person can experience hot flashes or chills and perspire heavily. There may be a tickle sensation in the stomach or nausea. When a person has a panic attack they may feel dizzy or faint and may become physically shaky. The person may fear that they are going crazy, they are out of control or that they are about to die. There can be a sense that you feel unreal (dissassociation called depersonalization) or the sense that everything around you feels fake (derealization). It is very important to have a full physical evaluation to rule out possible underlying medical problems. If you are not found to have a medical problem causing your symptoms then recommend that you see either a psychiatrist or a psychologist to get help with this. ...Read more

Doc gave me klonopin for shortness of breath, heart pain, numb/tingling and not thinking clearly. It didn't work. What else could be causing this?

Doc gave me klonopin for shortness of breath, heart pain, numb/tingling and not thinking clearly.  It didn't work.  What else could be causing this?

Sounds like anxiety: A good history and exam will help rule out other causes. Klonopin can be a short term aid for anxiety (2-4 weeks) but one of the ssri meds like Lexapro might help more for long term benefits. ...Read more
