I'm 17 & have chest pains, shortness of breath, rapid heart beat from simple tasks, extreme dizziness and fatigue. EKG was normal. Is this normal?

I'm 17 & have chest pains, shortness of breath, rapid heart beat from simple tasks, extreme dizziness and fatigue. EKG was normal. Is this normal?

Multiple symptoms: Of course not. How could all these symptoms in a 17 year old be "normal"? You need a complete physical exam including serology and hormone levels as well as pregnancy test and mental health eval for anxiety and depression. If you take drugs (MJ) or smoke, drink alcohol or are obese or inactive, you will be negatively effected and may develop symptoms as you've described.

Is coughing up bloody mucus, shortness of breath, and rapid heart beat normal during pregnancy?

No!: That's never normal, pregnant or not. If you think it's just allergies or congestion you can see how it goes, if worried see your doctor soon.

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

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

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.

] female with gad woke up with rapid heart beat and shortness of breath and ear ringlin? What now [

Review the situation: Sounds like u believe or have been diagnosed with gad, and have noticed some new anxiety symptoms. Sob and tinnitus are common with gad. You might want to take time& review what's been going on in your life recently that may be contributing to your symptoms. Any changes in your life, family, friends, job, health, diet, living situation, etc? Perhaps review/check w/ good friend, therapist, or doctor.

I feel so angry, then my hands became shaky, shortness of breath, slight dizzy and uncontrolled. Rapid heart beat. Why? Please...

ChillOutAndLearn...: Why? You get angry for some reason and your body then expresses it physiologically, which is a normal response, but why the anger? And why so intense anger? Is it that you keep it inside without expressing it (caution: express it in an acceptable way)? Do you get in situations that provoke such intense anger? You might want to consider 'anger management' as a useful tool. There's a lot of books on Amazon

For 6 months: total loss of appetite, swollen lymph nodes, rapid heart beat (110 avg), severe shortness of breath, fatigue. Help. Feeling like death.?

I am very sick: Please understand the limits of internet medicine. You are describing significant symptoms. If your physicians are finding that you have no obvious diagnoses it is time for a second opinion or to go to your family physician and to ask what and when you will understand what is wrong with you.

My doctor says I may have mitral valve prolapse. However there's a ten month wait for an ethnocardiogram, my symptoms are persisting and sometimes worsening, chest pain, rapid heart beat, shortness of breath post excercise, fatigue, what should I do?

My doctor says I may have mitral valve prolapse. However there's a ten month wait for an ethnocardiogram, my symptoms are persisting and sometimes worsening, chest pain, rapid heart beat, shortness of breath post excercise, fatigue, what should I do?

Nothing: If you haven't had the echo, then the diagnosis of mvp has not been established. Even if you do have it, mvp does not cause these symptoms. Doctors blame all kinds of things on mvp but they are not related. There is no treatment required for mvp and none that is helpful. If the wait for an echo is that long then you are in the wrong health system.

? Polycythemia: Many causes: smoking, lung disease, heart disease, medications. I suggest you talk with your doctor. May need to see a hematologist for a further work up. Treatment for polycythemia is removal of blood (phlebotomy). Hope this helps.
