Possible-not likely.: The vast majority of pains from heart are felt in torso, though sometimes also perceived (radiate), as with other mediastinal sensations, into the shoulders & arms (all innervated by cervical nerves 3, 4 & 5) & brain/mind cannot always correctly identify the origin.

Im a 27 year old male weigh 190 is it normal to see my heart beat in my stomach? I have terrible anxiety

Im a 27 year old male weigh 190 is it normal to see my heart beat in my stomach? I have terrible anxiety

Your anxiety: I'd like to encourage you to get a handle on your anxiety. It might be related to the heart beat question and if not, that can be a reason for an exam. But being very anxious is not healthy, so consider CBT - it's a great way to learn how to understand and manage anxiety. If the therapist thinks a drug might be helpful - they'll advise. Pills alone are not the best idea. Be well! ...Read more

My 3 year old has been complaining of fast heart beat when he's active. He's had a normal ecg for unrelated issue. I can't get a rate.

My 3 year old has been complaining of fast heart beat when he's active. He's had a normal ecg for unrelated issue. I can't get a rate.

Too fast to count?: This is a very unusual complaint for a three year old. Were those his words? " I have a fast heart beat" There are two possibilities. The first is that you are just not proficient in checking heart rates in three year olds, entirely possible if you are feeling for a radial pulse. The second is that your child does have a " too fast to count" heart rate, in which he has a heart rhythm problem. ...Read more

Most likely reason for terrible heel pain in a 37 year old man heart disease?

Most likely reason for terrible heel pain in a 37 year old man heart disease?

Support first...: I'd say 98% of my plantar fascitis patients respond to non-surgical treatments... Rest, supportive insoles (like spenco total support), rx orthotics, otc anti-inflammatories (like aleve), prescription nsaid's, steroid injections, prp injections, physical therapy, etc... If all else fails... Surgery. This most likely has nothing to do with heart disease. ...Read more
