I've done allot of tests still can't find out what's wrong. If I feel tightness and fullness my chest especially when I do nothing and cardio I feel like I have to push harder to feel my beat. Can someone tell me which doctor to see? Lung? Heart?
Chest symptoms: Chest symptoms like the ones you described can indicate heart problems or lung conditions. A physician would want more details about your symptoms, medical history, family history, occupation, etc, then decide what sort of tests or treatments were needed. Both cardiologists and pulmonologists can get you started. If it is not clear what is the trouble, heart testing might be the first step. ...Read more

Is it serious if I have very heavy heart palpitations, sometimes so hard I can see my entire left chest move through my shirt? I have anxiety problems
Could be, prob. Not: In persons with anxiety issues heart palpitations are extremely common.

If it is determined to be from your anxiety, then it is not serious. Doing meditation, yoga, regular exercise, avoiding caffeine and decongestants can all help. ...Read more

PMI: Yes - what you're seeing is the PMI or Point of Maximum Impulse - the place where in very thin people you can see the heart beat. This is 'normal' and nothing to worry about. Symptoms I WOULD worry about include 'fluttering' of the heart, getting dizzy, passing out etc. Over time if you gain weight - you may not see this any more, although likely you can still feel it with your hand. ...Read more
Heart beating harder than usual and there is a slight pain in the middle of my chest. What could be wrong?
Possibly nothing: The sensation could be many things, including extra heart beats (not typically dangerous), an arrhythmia (abnormal heart beat), anxiety, or dangerous conditions that cause chest pain like a heart attack or aortic dissection (both much less likely). Try taking your pulse in your neck or wrist while you're having the sensation -- if it's faster than 100-120 /min, go have an ekg done. ...Read more

Could aortic regurgitation be causing the pounding feeling I get after exercise? Heart beats uncomfortably hard and can see heart beating off chest
Yes.: Aortic regurgitation (leaking of the aortic valve), if severe enough, can cause palpitations and prominent pulses as well as enlargement of the heart to the point where one can see the pulsations on the chest wall. The degree of aortic valve leaking can readily be seen on an echocardiogram. ...Read more

Plus, 23 year olds simply do not have blockages in their coronary arteries or heart attacks. You need to have an ekg, chest x-ray, blood work, and a good physical exam to confirm. ...Read more

Heart palpitations but with a normal heart rate for 3 weeks on and off. Can see heart beating in chest, and stomach.
It's okay: Heart palpitation in young/healthy individuals is usually benign. Often it represents a "skipped beat" or premature contraction.

I had an X-ray and an ECG in January. I can see my heart beat when I look at my chest. And stomache. I'm not thin. 30 years old. Tests not heartIdeas?
Pulsations: If the chest x-Ray and EKG showed no abnormalities, then the pulsations you observe in your chest Don't necessarily mean that your heart is abnormal. The pulsation in your abdomen is most likely from the abdominal aorta and your Physician can determine whether your aorta is abnormal or should be checked with an ultrasound. My sense is that you're OK. ...Read more

Maybe normal: Sounds like you are experiencing what is called palpitations, an anti anxiety drug may be helpful. EKG and possibly what is called a Holter monitor would be helpful to exclude various abnormal heart rhythms as the cause, in which case a beta blocker drug might be prescribed. Probably normal at your age. ...Read more

About an hour ago I started to get a pinching and prickly feeling in my chest, mainly on the right side, could this be something wrong with my heart?
Maybe: It is hard to say what your symptoms are from given a short description and not knowing your age -- so the most honest answer is maybe. In general terms, however, heart related pain is often described as pressure rather than prickly, and often occurs in the setting of exertion. Having said all that, we always take chest related symptoms seriously; I would suggest getting it checked out. ...Read more

Have it checked: You're speaking about your abdominal area close to your chest. So, the heart is located not that far from the stomach, and if you're worried about your heart, you need to be seen by a doctor, and have a physical, in which s/he can check your heart and abdomen. This can't be done in any other way. Plus, it will give you peace of mind that's priceless. ...Read more
