    Bloating feeling on my body

    Something strange has been happening to my body for the past 4 months and I can't seem to diagnose it. No-one on the internet seems to have the same symptoms as me, and I can't find anything similar to my symptoms online. I have been having palpitations 24/7 for the past 6 months, even when I'm not aware of them they are there. Heartbeat is not fast or too slow but it pounds very hard and moves my whole body with it. It almost feels like something is clogged and blood is trying to push....

    Will my SVTs go away? NEED OPINIONS

    Ok so at first I was getting really bad skipped heart beats but I barely get them now and when I do they aren't bad and only last a couple seconds. But now I've been getting SVTs rarely that happen like once every month an a half at the same time every time. They last like 10 min and a remaining hour I just feel off like I can't get a full breathe and a weird feeling in my chest. Basically just very annoying I have a healthy heart and everything. Was just wondering can these just go away....

    How to find my catheter ablation records from 1999?

    Seemingly a lifetime ago, I had a catheter ablation done to correct atrial tachycardia. I think the year was 1999, and I was in Houston. I can't remember the name of the doctor. I think I know what hospital it was. Any suggestions on how to put my hands on my medical records from that procedure? Thanks!

    Aortic Valve and Arch Replacement

    I am an in shape 50 year old male who had an aortic aneurysm 14 years ago at age 36. At that time my Aorta was just over 9cm and for that reason the valve and aortic arch was removed and replaced with a saint jude valve and an artificial conduit. I now have a new aneurysm just below the artificial piece and will be undergoing another open heart. No reason ever given for the weakness in the aortic tissue. I have been pushing it lately with backpacking the Grand Canyon lengthways and a portion of the....

    Heart palpitations

    I'm an 21 year old woman, usually fit and well with no past medical history. When I was about 18, I had some investigations done including an ECG, blood tests and a 24 hour holter monitor for some palpitations and chest pain I was having. The cardiologist I saw told me there was nothing to worry about and that I was simply aware of my own heart beats. I was then discharged. The palpitations cleared up on their own eventually. Recently, as in within the last 2/3 months, I have noticed a return....

    High blood pressure and heart attacks

    I am looking to learn new ways to help me control my blood pressure without continuing taking my medication. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure about 4 years ago. I was overweight and am continuing to better my weight for health reasons. My fear is that if I can not fix my situation, I will have to take medication for the rest of my life. I have taken my health for granted and ignored the health risks that run in my family. My brother who was 35 when he had a fatal heart attack, and also suffered....

    Slight pressures in chest?

    So on March 2 I got sick with something viral. It mainly was messing w/ my sinuses more then anything. I stayed at home and rested for a week while taking DayQuil and NyQuil along with propolis occasionally. Then on the 10th (Friday) I started to notice a pressure in my chest (my left side). I thought maybe it was mucus build up in my lungs or something bad. I drank lots of hot tea and started to take mucinex. It helped, or at least I thought? On Saturday I was under a lot of stress and started to....

    CT with Contrast impressions

    I had a CT scan done yesterday with contrast as a result of findings in a prior CT that I had plueral-based nodular density in the upper left thorax. That appears to be resolving itself, but in one of the findings it stated: "Few small sub-centimeter nodes aorto pulmonary window with the largest measuring 1.1 cm." What does this mean, and anything to be concerned about?
