I have been having slight to moderate pains, that i would describe as aches, in the left side of my chest. Along with this i have had times where my heartbeat feels irregular, and this last for up to 5 min on end. Along with this, somtimes but not often i have slight pain in left neck, and weird slight tingly feeling in left chest and somtimes left arm. Somtimes when i just walk up stairs, or even just get up off couch to go to the refridgerator, i feel my heart beating unusually hard or fast. I have been to the E.R. for this multiple times. Heres what has been done there, and the findings.
- 4 ekg's, all normal
- 2 chest x rays normal
- 1 blood evaulation normal
- 1 ultrasound of heart - looked good
I know im not a hypocondraic, these symptoms just one day suddenly cam on and wont go away. i have a appointment with my regular docotr cheduled, and i hope toget a heart monitor to see if that can help find anytthing. Any knowledge or sugesstions, or thoughts would be great.
Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. The symptoms can occur due to tachyarrhythmias (rhythm disturbances in which the heart beats very fast) The 24 hour EKG monitoring which you are undergoing should help you out. If thatâs also normal, then I donât think thereâs much to worry. Itâs really good to know that all your reports are absolutely normal and hopefully the 24 hr monitoring should also be normal. Please discuss with your physician regarding using a small dose of beta blockers as I feel that it should help you in taking care of the palpitations which you suffer frequently.
I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
