Why do I get tipsy after one glass ofchampange? Is it normal to have fast heart beat?

No, it's not: And while very common, 19 year olds shouldn't even be drinking that champagne. Some people are very sensitive to alcohol's effects and get intoxicated on small amounts. This is your body/brain giving you a message that this is not a drug likely to do you much good. If your heartbeat gets fast after drinking, you could be developing "holiday heart" - an alcohol-related arrhythmia. Talk to doctor. ...Read more

Pre-syncope: Dizziness upon standing is a common symptom. It is called pre-syncope. It occurs because your blood has to suddenly re-distribute itself when you stand up. So there will be a sudden decrease in blood flow to your brain, and this causes you to feel dizzy or light headed. The best thing is to get up slowly. If it continues, you may want to get checked by your doctor. ...Read more

Why is it that when I have a night of drinking and smoking my heartbeat beats harder especially when I wake up please help?

Sometimes i feel my heart beat and then i can feel it moving in my chest, is this bad? I've had a heart murmur when i was a baby so this worries me.

Talk with your Doc: If the murmur you had as a baby did not require any special followup (x-rays, ekg's, echo's etc. ) it is probably not an issue today.If i listen to a kid often enough i will hear a heart murmur at some point & most represent normal hearts doing normal things. If you are preoccupied with your heart, get checked out. A good exam with a trusted doc might quell your anxiety or find something. ...Read more

I have a heart mummer and my heart is skippin beats now and i can feel it and my chest hurt when it do it is this a serious problem?

Possible: It truly depends on what is the cause of your murmur as well as the cause of skipped beats. Some causes are serious, others are not serious, but can be quite disturbing. To evaluate the murmur, an echocardiogram (heart ultrasound) is ideal. To evaluate the cause of your skipped beats, an event monitor would be able to tell you exactly what your heart is doing at the time of your skipped beats. ...Read more
