What kind of heart palpitations could possibly cause a heavy heart beat and throbbing in the back of the neck?  Echo shows Ok heart structure.

Sorry to frustrate: I know you're asking about cardiac conditions. I don't think it was a mistake to investigate - but it is a mistake to persist if there is a null result - especially at your age. Be reassured. Instead - consider a really skilled Health Psychologist who can teach you how to take your health seriously w/out anxiety and unneeded procedures. It can be the best way to feel better. Worth a try! ...Read more

Pulsation/throb (like heartbeat) for about 10 seconds on left side of head near ear-No pain. Only one time. What is this? Could it be a brain tumour?

Pulsation/throb (like heartbeat) for about 10 seconds on left side of head near ear-No pain. Only one time. What is this? Could it be a brain tumour?

No!: Symptoms like this and sharp pains etc happen often but they are to be ignored as they are too transient to make much out of them. Any serious problems will produce persistent symptoms which will keep getting worse with time. That is when you need to get concerned and seek medical attention. Ninety nine percent of such symptoms have no implications and are to be ignored to begin with. ...Read more

Is it normal to feel your heartbeat in your head when you have a sinus infection, feels like my head is throbbing with my heart?

Is it normal to feel your heartbeat in your head when you have a sinus infection, feels like my head is throbbing with my heart?

Well.....: congestion and sinus infection isn't normal BUT the congestion of this filters out all noise outside of the ear such that the sound of the heartbeat becomes more prominent. The sound itself is not a serious problem, nor does it indicate a heart problem. Sinus infections are a problem though. ...Read more
