Avatar f tn I got an alert on my email that paxil can cause heart disease. I have been on paxil for 8 years and have started having some problems with my heart. I take 30 milligrams a day. If anyone knows the answer to my question I appreciate hearing from you.
Avatar f tn Your heart rate may remain high after exercise if you have tachycardia, a condition that affects the one or both sets of chambers in your heart. Tachycardia causes your heart to beat significantly faster due to its effects on the electrical signals that control your heart rate. Hope this helps.
341953 tn?1209481891 its friday. feburary 1st. 2008. i am 25 years old and in reality i have come a long way from where i was before in the past. i am battling a disease that causes me pain on a daily basis, on top of conditions with my stomach that cause discomfort and pain daily. pain is a part of my daily life, and it is incredibly frustrating. it causes me to have ups and downs, mood swings like no other, and hurt the people accidently that i care about the most.
Avatar f tn Can anyone tell me how long it takes for tachycardia to weaken heart muscle. Trying to figure out how I may have gotten cardiomyopathy. I have had out of control tachycardia for quite a while but is now somewhat controled by meds. Would love to know how long before it starts to weaken heart.
Avatar n tn t old enough to have blocked arteries which is the primary reason for chest pains and the other forms of heart disease which would give you chest pain, if you had those types of heart disease, it would be hard to miss. Sinus tachycardia is a heart rate up to 140bpm. ; that may seem fast, but when you put it up against heart rates into the 200-300 bpm range, that's when there can be risks involving the heart. The heart is capable of handling even those fast rates for quite awhile.

Avatar n tn I do not understand such a dramatic change in my heart rate. It causes me the discomfort of a racing heart at times and lightheadedness. Sometimes I have to lean against something when I am standing up (to do laundry, etc.) until my heart slows a bit and I feel okay. I was recently diagnosed with degenerative disc disease (a deterioration of the cartilage between the vertebrae). I have mild pain often, and moderate pain occasionally.
Avatar f tn At first I was a little scared at the thought of PFD surgery, but with the severity of my symptoms, I almost welcome the idea! I have multilevel degenerative disc disease in my cervical spine and I know that is probably making my neck hurt worse. I wonder if I should consider surgical intervention for this. My mom had the same issue and had two surgeries. I am unsure if it is hereditary, as I am sure it just happens. I also have tumors on my thyroid gland and pituitary gland.
Avatar m tn High heart rate or tachycardia can be due to low BP, anemia, hyperthyroidism, fever, low blood sugar, anxiety and panic disorder, heart causes like sinus tachycardia, alcohol, coffee, effect of certain drugs etc. If you are aware of this high heart rate then this is called palpitations. Palpitations may be normally felt if you are overexerted. Chemicals like adrenaline, alcohol, caffeine, cocaine, amphetamines, and other drugs all cause palpitations.
Avatar n tn Inappropriate sinus tachycardia can only be diagnosed when all causes of appropriate sinus tachycardia have been ruled out. It is not clear what causes inappropriate sinus tachycardia but possible etiologies are an increase in the rate at which the sinus node depolarizes and an increased sensitivity to adrenaline. Once the diagnosis has been made by ruling out all of the potential causes of appropriate sinus tachycardia there are several treatment options.
Avatar n tn I am 58 yrs old and have genetic heart disease on my fathers side. He died of a massive heart attack at age 57 unexpectedly even though he jogged 3-5 miles a day. I have never been overweight & have kept in good physical condition my entire life.
762919 tn?1234450210 s, holter monitor and 6 week long event monitor,oh and a tilt table to.. my cardio doc is done running tests. does this mean he had ruled out heart disease and heart issues at this point? I was told the tahacardia is sinus in nature and he does not feel the need for a beta blocker at this point. He told me based upon my tread mill I'm in farily good shape? Well what does that mean? I'm confused??
Avatar m tn First, we are not doctors. We can't diagnose you. And even if we were, which we're not, we couldn't diagnose you through a forum. Regarding high resting heart rate. The most important question is: Do you always have an elevated heart rate? Or do you measure it in times with stress, anxiety, etc? Second: I assume (and see) that your doctor have ruled out some (appropriate, but pathological) reasons for your sinus tachycardia.

768251 tn?1256734583 I am 38 and at age 10 had rheumatic fever. I now have heart palpitations and tachycardia and am on medication for the tachycardia (Toprol XL). What exactly does the Atrial Dialtion mean and can it be the reason for the palpitations and tachycardia? Is this reversible? I am also overweight, will losing weight help? I am really scared and dont know what to do. Is there anything I can do? Help please!! The left Artium was 5.0 cm.
Avatar n tn When a heart rate is too fast, the person becomes very out of breath. The only other concern would be if she were to have an adrenal tumor, which causes fast heart beats. If this continues, you may want her to get tested to make sure that is not the cause and a thyroid test to check for hyperthyroidism.
Avatar n tn Posted By Bill on August 07, 1999 at 14:41:27 I'm a 25 year old male in pretty good shape. I played football all the way through college, and still remain very active in the weight room and on the track. I don't have high blood pressure, diabetese, rheumatic heart disease, or an over active thyroid gland, etc. When I was a child I would get these heart "flutters" at any given time. The doctors told me it was probably tachycardia and that I would most likely grow out of it.
Avatar m tn Hello everyone, I am just wondering if anyone else has experienced inappropriate sinus tachycardia (fast heart rhythm upon minimal exertion with no underlying cause). I was diagnosed with it recently and they aren't sure what is causing it but my heart rate doesn't fall in the average range of 60 - 100 when resting. I just started my menstrual cycle yesterday after having irregular periods for months. I thought maybe my period was the cause? But it is still continuing while I am on it.
