I experienced a sudden onset of bad left side chest pain which spread down my left arm?

Early this morning at about 3am I experienced a sudden onset of bad left side chest pain which spread down my left arm and a bit in my back. The pain was at it’s worst for about an hour, but stayed to a lesser extent for the rest of the night. There is a family history of heart disease (I have not been genetically tested for the condition yet but will be in the next couple of months) so I went to A&E this morning. They did and ECG which came back normal so they then did a chest X-Ray which also came back looking fine. After this I was told to go home and manage the pain myself. No bloods were taken. Unfortunately the pain hasn’t sopped and I still have it now- it feels almost like a bruising pain that comes and goes. If I breathe in very deeply and hold my breath, the pain gets worse and it sometimes gets worse when I move around or press on my chest. Despite having good ECG and X-Ray results, because the area I am feeling pain in is a potentially serious area I am still quite worried about it. Since bloods and further testing was not done, I am worried something has been missed. I am a 22 year old female. If the pain still persists for the next few days, how long do you think I should wait before returning to A&E?

Problems with my heart, suffer from heart palpitations, please advise?

I have problems with my heart. Besides from suffering from heart palpitations on a regular base and occasional light hediness, I do have a very slow heart beat at 54 beats per minute sometimes. Other than that I feel fine. I was checked by my primary physician and cardiologist. Blood works, EKG, Holter Monitor, Stress Tests, ECG all done and all normal. But I still have the same palpitation and slow heart beat. What can be causing this.

Should you have an echo cardiogram before a cardiac stress test?

My daughters best friend is 22 she is approx. 100lbs overweight, she’s a large farm girl, her breasts alone must account for at least 25% of this excess. She has been having heart rate issues, when sitting her heart rate is 90 if she walks down the street it goes up to 160 this was verified by a halter. She has had a ct scan and they saw no blockages. Her cardiologist has ordered a stress test later this week, but I think she should have a echo cardiogram first to make sure their are no internal cardio problems prior to the stress test. I’m afraid she could have a heart attack if her heart rate is pushed too high. Please advise! thanks (—)

I have bad swelling in my legs and feet, will my swelling be alleviated if a biventricular pacemaker is put in?

I am a 91 year old male with congestive heart failure, on medicine for it and have an existing pacemaker that was put in in 2012.

I have bad swelling in my legs and feet, no energy, sleeping issues, and just don’t feel good.

I have the option of 1. getting a new battery in my existing pacemaker (has 6-7 months left)
2. Getting a biventricular pacemaker put in
3. Doing nothing
My question is: 1. Will my swelling be alleviated with the biventricular pacemaker put in?
2. If I chose to do nothing, what will typically happen when my battery runs down or out?

It happens a few times per day. On some days zero. I also feel dizzy sometimes. I also have been stressed lately and having sleeping problems. I sleep bad. 4 or 5 hours per day.

For the past year I’ve had heart palpitations on and off, this is anything to worry about?

Hi there,
My name is (—). For the past while, probably a year I’ve had heart palpitations on and off, It feels like a beat is skipped in my chest and gives me a fright. Some days never and one day recently at least once every hour. I suffer with anxiety on and off, have had counseling, hypnotherapy etc which I’m continuing with. But I’ve read that anxiety can give palpitations? But when I get one I get very anxious so quite a vicious cycle. I have a massive fear of death, I also don’t like being apart from my fiancé, so working 3 weeks away at a time, having a train, a small plane and a helicopter for a commute to work doesn’t help things. These palpitations can come when.at rest, lying down, sitting, or during exercise (I’ve noticed more recently). I’ve also read exercise can cause palpitations. I was just wondering if this is anything to worry about or is it due to my anxiety? I’m not going to collapse due to a heart attack from them?

Any help very much appreciated
