Avatar n tn Is there anything I can do to help with the palps and with the heart murmur does it make them more serious? 6. Does a heart murmur shorten life span? 7. If some of the heart was not visable could there be a serious defect that they missed? 8. I am on Atenenol 12.5mg I was on 25mg but now cut in half, is it OK to cut in half and is it safe to go off of them or will that be bad?
Avatar n tn Later I was checking my pulse when my chest hurt, my pulse rate was ok, while i was checking it my chest stopped hurting, and my pulse got stronger? REcently a doctor found I had a heart murmur, more pronounced while laying down.
Avatar m tn I then moved onto my heart (after being told I had a slight murmur for the first time in 37 years). I was convinced I was about to have a heart attack, heart disease etc. I had an EKG, blood work, stress test and an Echo Cardiogram all which came back normal. Apparently 90% of people have the same type of mild mild murmur I have if they were checked for it. My Dr. has been really good about sending me for whatever tests I need to make me feel better.
Avatar f tn He has even admitted to me that he was very upset when they found the hole in her heart and he never heard the murmur. However, NO ONE heard the murmur.(27 people to be exact) So he was a little more relaxed. If we were late for our weekly weight checks he calls to make sure everything is ok. While she was hospitalized he called everyday to check on progress and see how we were handling. I think not only you need a second opinion, but perhaps another pediatrician!
Avatar n tn Dear CCF MD, This is so called heart month, where every morning show and news station has a segment on Heart health, most focusing on the differece between cardiac symptoms among men and women. It seems to me I am hearing more and more tragic stories of women dying suddenly from heart attacks, most of them had sought medical attention weeks, days and even hours before collapsing and from what I have been told the majority of them were given a diagnosis of "stressed out".
Avatar f tn I went to a doctor who detected a heart murmur so we ran a heart echo. The heart echo results were normal as the doctor told me. However, trace mitral regurgitation, trace tricuspid regurgitation and trace pulmonic regurgitation are present. now I know these things are not significant, but I can't help but wonder why I am experiencing such extreme symptoms.
Avatar n tn I have had a list of symptoms, all very really and consistent throughout the day. Dizziness, eye pain, shakiness, derealization just to name a few. I also went to numerous specialists and had numerous tests including a brain MRI. ALL came back "normal". You are not a unique case, although I know you feel like that right now. Anxiety can ABSOLUTELY cause the symptoms you've described. The moment you realize this you will begin feeling some relief from your symptoms.
Avatar m tn I am a 28 y/o male who has been experiencing a heart flutter/vibration/palpitation while sleeping since May 09 (that I know of). Pretty much every night, within a minute of falling asleep, I am re-awoken by my heart vibrating. You can still feel the ventricle contractions at normal pace, but there is also another beat (atrial I'm assuming), which is normally 200-300 bpm, and feels like a vibration. Once I wake up it starts to go away.
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
Avatar n tn Just recently I have started getting these sharp pains in the heart region, and they really scared me causing me to relapse into another panic episode. I went to the doctor and he did an EKG (that turned out fine), but he did prescribe me anti-inflammatory meds. I didn't think to ask him questions until after I left, because I could not explain to people that asked why my heart was inflamed. And how it got that way.....
Avatar n tn I also was tested for MVP with negative results from the cardiologist at St. Pauls. I have a heart murmur that sounds over the Mitral Valve but it is innocent as the Valve is structurally fine....I too found the dysautonomia while researching the heart issues. Any advuse would be greatly appreciated and I would be interested to hear how you have made out with your doctor.
Avatar n tn HOCM (Hypertrophic Obstructive CardioMyopathy), is a congenital (meaning that it runs in families) condition that results in thickening of the heart muscle (hypertrophy), a increased pressure gradient (obstruction) across the outflow tract and a cardiomyopathy (abnormal function of the heart muscle). Symptoms of HOCM include shortness of breath, lightheadedness, fainting and chest pain. Some patients experience cardiac rhythm disturbances which in some cases may lead to sudden death.

Avatar f tn {my mom said i was most likely a preemie because before me and my brother she had surgery suppose to be on ovaries and they messed up and did something else to uterus and she was told she never be able to carry full term} The only thing i had wrong with me was a heart murmur that went away and breathing issues in which my parents had to bring a machine home for awhile to help me breathe and learn CPR, i was hospitalized for almost 6 months. i also needed blood transfusions as infant.
585223 tn?1219973894 (I dislike the nuclear stress test as the stress is chemically induced and the pain resembles heart attack symptoms. I wonder if this test itself is hard on the heart). What concerns me is that I still sometimes awaken from sleep in the early hours with rapid palpitations. I am prone to panic attacks and I have a hard time deciding whether the palpitations are due to panic or due to the mitral valve prolapse.
Avatar m tn My 16yr old son was diagnosed with right sided pvc bigeminy a little over a year ago. Although he had annual checkups, we never knew he had a problem since bigeminy can be masked by a regular heart rhythm. It just happened to be slightly "off" the day of his checkup causing a "murmur like" sound the PA picked up and decided to check out. He had the ablation surgery last October and underwent his first annual post-op tests.
Avatar n tn That is the million dollar question! If anyone of us could figure out how to control them, we would be rich! LOL. I have had them for at least 10 years, regular palps, PAC's and was just seen in the emergency room for very bad PVC's on Saturday! I have always been told not to worry about them - but when they hit, it sends my panic through the roof. I just found this board, and think it is a wonderful place for information and support. Good luck to all of us!
Avatar n tn Thanks for sharing your story. For many years my heart symptoms were primarily tachycardia only (1975-2000). My heart would get up to a snapping 180-190 b.p.m. and stay there for 15-20 minutes, but there was no irregularity to the rhythm. That went hand in hand with many of the scary symptoms of hyperventilation. The diagnosis was anxiety disorder, and I pretty easily accepted that since my mother and a couple of other relatives had experienced similar episodes.
Avatar n tn Anyway, I am having an echocardiogram as I have never had one and he wants to view my heart. I have all the symptoms of mitral valve prolapse but no murmur, but then I've heard if you are obese and/or "well-endowed", the murmur might be heard to detect, so if it's there, I guess the echo will show it. Anyway, I too decided to try some supplements. I had been taking no vitamins at all and didn't eat right. I got a book on the heart, The Miracle Heart, by Jean Carper.
Avatar n tn I believe minimally invasive surgery for a repair is open heart surgery. Your heart is stoppped vand you are on bypass. I really don't know why they call it "minimally invasive" because you still have a 4-6 in. scar in the middle of your chest vs a few inches longer. They still have to open your sternum. I've been told to ask about a right thoracotamy(sp) which is going thru the right side of the chest to repair the heart. I doubt they will do that though.
Avatar n tn My mother had told me along time ago that I was born with a heart murmur, I figured since it didn't bother me and I had no symptoms there was nothing wrong with me. So, I continued through my life exercising like normal and even did a three year stint in the Army where the murmur was totally undetected, how could this be. Well my doctors told me had I not been a person who was in such good shape I probably would've had the surgery ten years earlier.
Avatar m tn He said my symptoms were serious and required urgent attention. He was alarmed when he noted a heart murmur while listening to my heart. He said the murmur could be the result of an underlying infection. He also gave serious consideration to the idea that an exposure to an exotic fungus or bacteria in my apartment may have caused the illness. I'll let you know what the infectious disease specialist says.
519736 tn?1253990426 My mom, who is 75, feels best with lower frees than me due to her age and heart murmur. The key is to listen to your symptoms. Find an endo who listens to you as well. Here's a great site with recommended endos. http://www.thyroid-info.com/topdrs/ Call the nurse and ask if the doctor treats symptoms and frees, not a TSH, which is a pituitary hormone. You should also ask for antibody tests (Tgab and TPOab) if you haven't already to confirm Hashimoto's.
Avatar n tn it all comes down the same question -- do you have a structurally normal heart? If you have a structurally normal heart it should not matter. I can say it is probably ok, but I cannot see the rhythm strips and it is hard to extrapolate from a description of symptoms. Thanks for posting.
