Common Questions and Answers about Heart problems in children


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 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 Well, I figure I should just keep on writing.... My daughter was recently diagnosed with a heart murmur that gets better upon standing but is significant when lying down. She is 3 years and 5 months old and has never been diagnosed with this in the past. She also doesn't seem to get overly tired when playing. I'm kind of freaking out about it.

Avatar f tn My 18mo od daughter with downs was born with a hole in her heart. She had surgery to repair it. But now she is still having pulmonary hypertension. Iv asked advice on the cardiology forum. And now Im wondering if any of you have had a child with sleep apnea that affected thier heart and lungs this way. My daughter goes in for a sleep test next week, and many other tests to come. Its going to cost alot, and any advice is wecome.
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.

342425 tn?1241379464 When I was pregnant with my last child ,which will be 3 in December 2007, I was having some problems with my heart. We did an echocardiogram and said my mitro valve was not closing it was flapping basically. We figured this was from the extra blood volume but they wanted me to get it checked after I have the baby. Well that has been almost 3 years. I do not have health ins. and have not gone to the dr.
Avatar n tn This can happen due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, due to heart disease or due to anemia. Hence if a fours year old has breathing problems, coughs and sneezes a lot and has wheezes, he could be having COPD and should be investigated for this. However, if he is breathless without the signs of COPD, is weak or lethargic then he could be having anemia or heart disease. Please consult your child's pediatrician for further follow up. Take care!
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 n tn 15 Dear Lydia, Any tachycardia that originates in the upper chambers of the heart is called an SVT or supraventricular (above the ventricles,i.e. lower chambers of the heart) tachycardia, thus technically a.fib is an SVT. Otherwise the two are not "related" as you ask. Things to ask the pediatric cardiologist are: 1.Is the rhythm life-threatening? 2.What are the different modes of treatment (medicines, procedures, etc.)? 3.Is there a potential cure?

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 said all of that, true heart related chest pain in children is EXTREMELY rare, even in children with known heart disease. The fact that she says her heart feels like it stops, tends to lead me to believe she is having premature beats and that she is feeling her heart beat against the chest wall; children tend to describe palpitations as chest pain, even though it is not true heart related chest pain.
