Avatar m tn There are many individuals who can have an ejection fraction in the 20s without limitations in their functionality. It appears that your heart is still able to compensate and pump blood forward. Those without a history of heart attacks who have a low ejection fraction are said to have a "non-ischemic cardiomyopathy," which is quite common.
Avatar f tn aspx  Figure your maximum heart rate by subtracting your age from 220 - 22 = 198 I suggest buying a heart rate monitor that straps around your chest and the other part goes on your wrist like a watch. You want to get your heart rate 65% to 85% of your maximum rate! That would be 128 - 168. It's important to first do your strength training first and then the cardio. last! The cardio will only take 20 minutes. Check the link that I posted above. Get the OK from your doctor first!
Avatar n tn Hello! Did your regular OB do the u/s or a perinatologist? Reason I ask, if you are over 35 and are at your stage of pregnancy, your Ob will usually recommend a Level II u/s or "Targeted study "which gives a more precise reading of your baby's measurments and growth. Apparantly, there are different levels to u/s and what they detect, so when you go to your regular OB, readings are pretty general, basic, nothing high definition...
725014 tn?1230968237 If it was a PVC (which causes a pause in the heart beat) it wouldn't take 2 minutes to recover. I wonder if you're having episodes of bradycardia, a slow heart beat. Have you tried to take your pulse during those 2 minutes? If the rate is under 50 beats a minute, then you may have a problem. Follow up with your doctor; s/he may suggest you wear an event monitor for a month.
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 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 f tn Is there anyone in their 30's who has had any kind of serious heart problems, I need to talk to someone.
Avatar f tn I just returned from the hospital and for the third time in the past three weeks my resting heart rate is 160 I am getting scared about what this means for my future. Will my heart give out sooner than I am ready to go? I am really beginning to get really upset by the possible problems I may face from this.
Avatar f tn I've been concerned for a month that I've had or am going to have a heart attack. I've had a couple chest pains and my stomach has been upset all week. Feels like I have a tuning-fork in my gut. Went to doc today; BP 150/90. She wants to prescribe BP medicine. I don't take anything but vitamins and 1 aspirin daily. Had ekg and stress test and did fine. Felt fine when I left and by the time I got back to work my insides are churning again.
Avatar f tn Bad day today. Had another storm this morning at about 10:30. Climbed to the 130's, even low 140's. Had really to water the plants after too many days of neglect. HR did not abate; kept in the 130's, even lower 140's. Was too hot outside; came back to office, but HR still going too fast, around the 100's seated. In the afternoon, had another storm in the 100's, 110's peaking to 130. Rowed anyway, as I need to keep at it.
Avatar f tn First symptoms in late 20's, now in my late 40's. I am symptom-less most of the time and am on copaxone just after diagnosis in Aug of 2010.
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.
284274 tn?1194601003 I have hope regardless of what is found during this crazy time of searching for answer to test results/health issues. My husband and I find our hope in God. I have been dealing with health issues since I was in my 20s. Over time I have had to learn to except where I am at the time, but not except I will be here for ever. I know there are answers regardless of the out come to those answers.
10947 tn?1281404252 Broken heart syndrome, on the other hand, is less likely to be fatal and does not result in permanent heart damage. Broken heart syndrome often occurs in perfectly healthy patients, who can recover fully in a matter of days. So while it’s rare, beware: unrequited love can actually break your heart.
Avatar f tn He said I had a virus in the summer. If I get rid of stomach problems I will get rid of heart problems. Take 20 mg. in the morning and 20 mg. late afternoon. He will see me in a month and follow up with Dr. Xanthaky.
1230936 tn?1384267689 heard the baby's heart beat..low to mid 170's...music to my EARS! did all the routine testing and hopefully everything comes back negative/normal in a few days. next appointment is August 14th and then I think some time in september we're making the trip to portland for the high risk unit..the 20 week ultra sound!
175890 tn?1253729525 Could mean cardiac arrythmia or even atrial fibrillation. Most people get the idea that with atrial fib comes a fast heart rate and that isn't necessarily so.....sometimes the heart rate drops as well. A normal pulse is anywhere from 70-120 is considered within normal limits...but if you say slow it depends on what you consider to be slow. If you take good care of yourself and exercise it would not be unusual for your heart rate to be in the upper 50's or 60's....
Avatar f tn The answer is in my opinion could be in this sentence that you said: "Not really active in sports or anything of that nature. " Try exercising every day, start with 20 minutes, add every day 10 more minutes and go up to 2 hours a day. You will feel much better. Don’t tell you don’t have time for that, we all do, how many hours we spend with things that are not important , watching TV etc….think about it.
Avatar f tn what to do, second opinion and let it in Gods hands? am I being tested. How do you know? suffering from tach and brachycardia. Dr. feels have too many health issues to be good candidate for any kind of implant to correct my heart and blood pressure readings.just suppose to live with it. I am already disabled. how disabled can a person be and still tolerate there life.. sensation comes out of no where on so little exertion, with no warning and takes hours to feel composed again..
