Sure can: However, i'd like to know your age, smoker or not, alcohol drinker or not, are you taking meds or over the counter products? How long have you been having these symptoms? Any heartburn? Do you feel winded or lightheaded when you have this sensation? In other words, there is a bit more to this job than taking a good guess. I don't like guessing when it comes to the best advice I can give you... ...Read more

Palpitations: Palpitations (irregular heart beats) can be caused by multiple conditions. It is important that you have an ekg and be evaluated. Electrolyte disturbances in our blood (sodium, potassium), medications, thyroid condition or even underlying heart disease can cause palpitations. Sometimes the easiest thing is to have your local firefighters run a rhythm strip for you, and they will advise if you need to go to the hospital. If you feel lightheaded, faint, have any chest pain or symptoms, then you need to be seen as an emergency. ...Read more

Sometimes I get so angry that my chest hurts and my heart feels like it's going to explode. I am afraid that I have caused irreversible damage to my heart.

Effects of anger: Anger and stress are not healthy for the heart, but a cardiologist would have to evaluate you to determine what, if any, damage there is. Seeking help for the anger (whether it's by therapy, medication, yoga, or anger management classes) would be advised to help not just your heart health but your overall physical and mental well-being. ...Read more

It: It sounds as though you may be suffering from gastro-esophageal reflux disease (gerd). The most common symptoms of gerd are:

- heartburn
- sore throat
- "lump in the throat" sensation or difficulty swallowing
- acidic or sour taste in your mouth (some people describe a rotten egg-type taste)
- dry cough
- hoarseness
- regurgitation (wet burps)

dairy products such as yogurt or milkshakes can give some relief - milk has antacid properties. You can also try over the counter antacid medications such as Tums (calcium carbonate) or maalox. It is important to discuss these symptoms with your doctor. There are many other antacid and acid blocker medications that can help alleviate your symptoms if your symptoms continue. In the meantime, there are a few things you can do to help:

- avoid spicy, acidic, or fatty foods
- avoid alcohol and caffeine
- quit smoking if you smoke
- avoid tight clothing - especially tight belts and pants
- eat small meals
- do not eat for a few hours before going to bed.

Good luck! ...Read more

I have a really sore chest, my heart feels like it is going to beat out of my chest, I have a bad headache and I feel exhausted! Any help?

See your family doc: Your symptoms may likely be related to mitral valve prolapse, a relatively benign condition but still requiring work up and care. Your doctor needs to see you to rule out any more serious, but much less likely, conditions. Your sore chest could be costochondritis (inflammation of the chest wall), but for htis complex of complaints there is no simple answer without seeing a medical provider. ...Read more

At times my heart feels like it's beating really hard and my chest hurts a little then sometimes it's like it beats too slow. Ideas??

Many. . .: Possible causes may include medications (including over the counter/supplements), drugs and alcohol, metabolic problems like thyroid disorders, poor sleep, problems with anxiety, or even problems with 'wiring' of the heart itself--although this is much less common. If this is something new, you should really see your doctor for an evaluation. Best of luck. ...Read more

Occasionally, my heart feels like its flip-flopping inside my chest or trying to run away. Only occurs for a few seconds. What could this be?

PalpitationsCommonly: Due to cardiac arrhythmias, about 70% of the time. Intensity of each heartbeat is a function of time delay between contractions because a key control is heart filling for intensity of each contraction, both within heart & especially split-second brain control. Thus early contractions are weaker than usual, longer delays result in stronger contractions which commonly catch people's attention. ...Read more

Its hard 2 breathe my heart feels like its beatin against my cheast an it feels like someones pushing into my cheast what's wrong I had a very bad upsetting thing happen

Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose your chest pressure & shortness of breath. I will list some of the symptoms of a mycocardial infarction (heart attack). Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack. You could be having a panic attack. However, with these types of symptoms a heart attack needs to be ruled out. Please call 911, as you should be transported to a hospital for immediate evaluation. ...Read more

Normal: Your spirometry results appear ok. Many people with rapid heart rates do not feel palpitations or forceful beat. Lump sensation in the throat is quite characteristic of anxiety. If your blood pressure, heart rhythm and heart rate are all normal, I doubt that you have a truly weak pulse. You should consider stress management therapy which I feel will relieve your symptoms. Discuss this with your MD ...Read more

I get a twitching sensation in middle of chest where hearts at no SOB or anything just weird feeling and my heart rate is normal could this be gas?

Muscular: Where the twitches have no relationship to the pulse or heart beat, these sensations don't come from disturbances in the heart rhythm and most likely come from irritable muscle fibers in the chest wall. Gas distress is usually sharp and jabbing. ...Read more

I have panic dis/sometimes when im sitting I get sinking feeling in chest like my heart stopped. Have had EKG and is normal. Is this anxiety related?

Sinking feeling: Though panic disorder can cause chest symptoms any new occurrences should be evaluated, an extended ECG monitor such as 24-48 hr Holter ECG or a 30 day event monitoring device should help clarify matters. If not recently performed a few basic lab values should be checked.Anxiety as a cause is a diagnosis of exclusion so see a physician ...Read more

Feeling a strong beat out of my chest (to the right of my heart) every few beats. Had tests - heart is normal, but heart rate is fast.

Heart rate: If you had tests the "strong" beat should have been identified. I am not sure what you mean by a strong beat. Is your heart rate regular or is the strong beat an early or skipped beat? The fast heart rate, if always present, is another issue. All these questions can be answered fully by a cardiologist if you have not seen one. Though you have had "tests", your testing may have been incomplete. ...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

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

Anxiety: These symptoms are most compatible with chronic stress and anxiety with over awareness of heart beat and nonexertional chest distress. I recommend that you have a treadmill stress test and an outpatient heart monitor for 24-48 hours writing down the time and nature of symptoms. In this way you'll be able to rule out a cardiac cause of symptoms. Stress management therapy and reassurance will help. ...Read more

I can't tell if I am having a heart flutter or not. I just get this weird feeling in the top of my chest sometimes. No pain or fast heart beat. Help?

Tell your story: The story here is important. Angina is classically discomfort worse with exertion and relieved with rest. If you have this "weird" feeling and you run down the street and it gets better, that is not a heart attack! If it occurs with meals, when you assume a certain position, when you see a certain person, it could have more or less significance (esp. If you're in love:]!!). Get a check-up soon ...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
