Common Questions and Answers about Chest tightness rapid heartbeat


Avatar n tn I've had chest tightness (uncomfortable but not "painful") for over a week and now I have terrible diarrhea and wonder if they're related. I'm 34 and I'm 5wks pregnant.

Avatar m tn I have mild asthma, and there are times when, if I bend over in the way you describe, I can hear a faint, rapid ticking noise in my chest. However, it is not in time with my heartbeat, and it mostly occurs towards the end of a long exhalation. In my case, it seems to be specifically related to airway irritation. I wonder if you are experiencing something related to your bout of pneumonia. As the doc says, see someone and get it checked out just to be on the safe side.

725975 tn?1240010702 I have been diagnoses with vetricular tachycardia and had ablation to correct it last month. Last night I has a rapid heartbeat again which means the ablation didn't work.

Avatar m tn I have heard about the squatting and bearing down thing but whenever I would start to try that I could never really commit to it because that chest tightness freaks me out and makes me feel like my heart will explode or stop. Maybe I should just push through and try it. Anyways, sorry this is so long but it was cool to see a topic talking about the exact same thing I have gone through for so long. My last episode was back in June and lasted about a half hour.

Avatar f tn After the blockage was discovered thanks to a persistent PCP, and the stent inserted, I had chest pain afterwards. Was re-catheterized, all the major arteries were given a clean bill of health, but was placed on a beta blocker. Terrible reaction to the first one, put on a second one, and finally my cardiologist took me off that one as well. Although I see some improvement, I still have chest "aches" on exertion.
620004 tn?1227828906 The xanax certainly helped the symptoms (tightness in the chest, inability to swallow (even water) followed by difficulty breathing, rapid heartbeat and definitely panic. Fortunately, I was travelling and had an attack elsewhere. I'm really thankful to have met another doctor; because, she looked deeper. I was a big fan of spicy foods, drank often and was in an extremely high-stress occupation. She ordered an endoscopy before writing me off as another victim of panic attacks.

Avatar n tn After having my 2nd child, 4 years ago, I started keeping track of heart papitations/chest pain that I was having. It seemed to be 1-2 weeks before I started my period. I had an ultrasound/stress test 2 years ago and everything came out fine. However, I am still having these chest pains and sometimes shortness of breath (especially when I workout). I am not one to go to the doctor often, so I am hoping this is nothing serious.
Avatar n tn He prescribed me some Beta Blockers, Propranolol 40 mg tablets, have only been taking these for 2 days so am unsure if they are going to work!!

Avatar n tn I do not have the arm numbness, but do have sore muscles and twitching. For me, it is mostly a tightness in my chest (breastbone mainly) and my throat feels raw, especially if I excercise. I have been diagnosed with GERD and as of right now am assuming that stress is causing my GERD to act up in turn casuing more acid production which is effecting my esophagus and throat. Hope this helps.

A basic workup was performed at the ER, which included an EKG, chest xray and troponin blood test.  They all came back normal.

Avatar n tn cough, especially at night or when lying down; heart palpitations — sensations of a rapid, fluttering heartbeat; CHEST PAIN (angina) or tightness. If it is a heart problem, you may want to see a doctor prior to your scheduled meeting. Only a doctor can determine whether or not your symptoms are heart related...chest pain is a symptom and your condition may have passed a threshold of no symptoms for congenital heart defect.
