Heart problems in adults

Common Questions and Answers about Heart problems in adults


Avatar f tn s. I have a mitral valve prolapse. There are many heart problems that are not heart trouble... And for many people, a mitral valve prolapse isn't serious enough for medication. I have a friend with an atrial valve problem and it is also considered benign. A murmur is just that - an unnatural sound in the heart and it could remain just a murmur for years before it causes any trouble. It would be best not to worry about it.
Avatar f tn I got a stent put in. Probably a problem from the high blood calcium, treatment, and blood pressure all mixed together. Getting ablation, too.
Avatar m tn recently I have been having these funny little episodes with my heart I get breathless then my heart does these half beats where it feels like its trying to stop then goes back to normal heart rate the doctor did say to me that it was eptopic beat but didnt explain anything to me. which as it does stresses you out even more. I feel like I am going to faint when these episodes happen. I dont drink do drugs I eat really healthy and I do smoke cigarettes which am trying to give up.
Avatar f tn As for the HR of 130, even at rest, that high rate may be due to the activity of being in class more than any abnormal heart rate. Check your heart rate when turely at rest. Then it should be below 100 pbm to be "normal". I believe young people tend to have higher HR than adults (over 18 years old).
Avatar n tn This seems to occur more often in adults with heart problems. If a person has been taking Vyvanse evidence of this drug can be detectable in the urine from 1 to 3 days and even 5 days .It is best to see a doctor if the symptoms are severe. I sincerely hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
1019167 tn?1315588348 have to go see dr on monday... might be getting sent to a cardiologist!!
Avatar f tn I had this problem since my dad passed away, its getting worst, the older i get.
Avatar m tn One of my friends has currently been having some puzzling heart problems. She would be sitting in class, and all of a sudden her hear would race. She would immediately report to the infirmary, where the nurse would take her heart beat into record. I think the highest it ever was was pushing 120, almost into 130. It wasn't like she was doing anything physically strenuous. The only other symptom was a slight tingly sensation in her face, no specific part just all over.

Avatar n tn Visitation with his Dad. Great-Grandma in hospital...heart problems. No problems.
Avatar n tn i recently had my bp taken and it was 160/79 and was told that the systolic number was high but as the dystolic number was normal that there was nothing to worry about, however i read about systolic hypertension in the elderly is a concern and wondered if it was a concern in yound adults as i am 27, should i be worried and seek a second opinion from a doctor? i do suffer from nose bleeds, headaches, and my pulse is 91 i am overweight and i know this is a risk facter.
Avatar n tn Luckily, in this situation, the children are older. Maybe you could all sit down and have a heart to heart as adults. Maybe the children could see that their mom is happy.
448723 tn?1301454958 So DH made me promise to contact the doctor in the morning and explain what had happened and see if I needed to be checked. The midwife said that I needed to come in immediately (when I rang in the morning) and they went over in detail what had happened the night before. The doctor then saw me and sent me for an ECG which they don't expect will hold any answers for me as I was feeling fine by the time the ECG was done.
Avatar f tn My daughter is 6 1/2 months pregnant and was told yesterday that her baby is having PAC's. They aren't having her come back for a week. Is this a a concerning heart rhythm. Just had a daughter that lost twin boys a month ago and hope that we aren't in for something else like that. Should we be worried? I know in adults that many have PAC's without much concern. Thanks in advance for your reply.
Avatar n tn While this is definitely something to celebrate, it is also true that many adults who were born with cardiac defects will require ongoing care for their heart condition. In fact, lifelong follow-up with doctors that specialise in "congenital heart disease" is recommended for all of these patients. Over the years I have met many adults (>100) that were born with tricuspid atresia.

Avatar m tn As fortis said, there are different types and different degrees of murmurs. Quite a lot of them. To learn the implications for anyone of any age, it is necessary to get back to the doc who diagnosed the murmur and ask him/her for much more information.
Avatar f tn Im not a pediatric cardiologist, so i dont know how common they are in children, but they are not uncommon in adults. I wouldnt worry too much about the heart rate being on the low side during the test. The high 130's isnt that low unless they where trying to reach the max rate (probably around 200 because its a child) and couldnt do it..
Avatar n tn I would like to know what kind of problems my 11 month old grandbaby Halle will be up against in her surgery to repair her heart on 9/11/07? She has the "A" Team at Sick Kids. Has anyone else on this site experienced the same operation at such a young age? What I've read so far dealt mainly with adults.
Avatar n tn Would he have problems with his heart and would he have any symptoms that we could watch for? He also has an arrythmia problem but the doctor doesn't intend to do a follow echo to see if the opening did indeed close. Thanks for any information you can give me. Laura Dear Laura: I think you are referring to a patent foramen ovale. This is a connection that everyone has between the right atrium and left atrium in the womb.
671285 tn?1292660161 Are heart attacks uncommon in younger adults? I know that it is possible for anyone to get one but what are the odds of someone healthy, with no history of heart disease, getting one?
Avatar f tn t obvious to anyone else in the room, but since she had been having problems with seizures the night before, I knew what to watch for. The other friends in the room weren't even aware. Like you, she started having epilepsy when she was an older teenager. Anyway, it seems like you should inform your neurologist of this jerking you described.
1616953 tn?1443835511 Beth and I are kind of being arms length. I think I've gotta get off the computer or spend more quality time. Got into bed and tried to decode some kind of pattern to my heart irregularity. For a while (Prev night) I thought it had some repeating cycle. Like 8 beats before it skipped then 4 beats for a while then back to 8 and then 16. All really interesting except none of that happened when I started paying attention last night.
Avatar n tn HAVING OCCULAR PROBLEMS,SPASMS IN LEGS. HAD 11spinal surgeries and am concerned about the myelin. The occular problems are abnormal because I have implants from cataract surgery-so not supposed to happen. They are also checking for Sjogren's. I don't want either! I have had spinal problems since age 11 and have spent a life in and out of hospitals and now have rods from the top of my spine to the bottom. ENOUGH!!!
Avatar f tn The first time she went to hospital, she was hooked up to some type of screen. We could see her heart and we both saw it skip. A Cardiologist came in watched screen and said she needed surgery. She said she had a piece dangling from heart causing problem. When it was time to be discharged, Hospital inform us of what Dr. had said. We were just told to see a Cardiologist. Now, She has been at work and has fainted a few times. An ambulance is called and she is taken same Hospital.
