    Blood pressure and pulse goes up and down drastically

    I am 30 years old with anxiety issues but do not take any medication for it. The last few months I've started having chest pains especially when I have anxiety attacks. I bought a blood pressure and pulse reader so I could keep an eye on it. I've been checking it every few hours while awake. During the day my blood pressure stays extremely low averaging around 88/55. I've been told by doctors before that I have low blood pressure so this doesn't surprise me. My pulse averages around....

    AFib and congestive heart failure

    I had a dual chamber pacemaker implanted in 2016 due to chronic AFib. I have been in AFib since August, but the pacemaker is working. My question is this. Do I still have the chance of developing CHF because of my chronic AFib?
  • Can slight gas manifest as chest, jaw and arm pain?

    Hello, I am a 32 year old male in relatively good health. For the past several months I've been experiencing a dull aching pain in the left lower portion of my jaw with a simultaneous dull aching in my left arm which tends to be felt on the inner forearm. It will generally last a few minutes at a time and will sometimes come in waves. A few times I felt pressure in my chest as well. I am 100% positive it is not musculoskeletal as it is not relieved by re-positioning, nor is it initiated by any....

    Heart palpitations and air burping

    I am according to my Dr. a very healthy, 6 2 150 lb, 47 year old male. Although he says my arms and legs (36 in inseam) are a little long and my heart has to work hard to get the blood out to them, little else is wrong with me, but maybe some mild asthma and allergies. So he says I may have some kind of heart thing where it skips a beat or whatever, can't recall the name (right?) but he said probably nothing to worry about but I can do an echo if I want. He said it would probably just make me....

    Angiogram Without Iodine Contrast Dye?

    Background: I recently had a heart CT scan. Before the exam I told the doctor that I had a severe allergy to iodine dye. They gave me an allergy prep and told me it should prevent an allergic reaction. It didn't. I had a severe allergic reaction as soon as the test was over. My heart stopped and chest compressions were required to bring back a pulse. The CT scan images showed extensive coronary artery disease. Question: If I were to need cardiac catheterization and a stent to widen the coronary....
