    Heart/burping

    I have been experiencing heart palpitations and then burping. It seems that my heart begins to race out of no where, feels like skipping, actually bouncing at times, then I burp and it calms down. It's been happening for about a year now. There has been a lot of stress within my family lately between relatives passing, sickness and operations. I naturally attributed what I was feeling to all that. But even when I feel as calm as can be, it starts to happen. Should I look into an antacid or something....

    Low Heart Rate Not Athletic

    Lately I have been experiencing an uncommonly low heart rate while at rest usually lying down. It will drop as low as 49-50 bpm while I am lying in bed. I am not athletic at all and this is worrying me. I believe it may have to do with my thyroid. My mother has hypothyroidism and I wonder if their is a genetic predisposition for it. I also have dry skin brittle hair and my TSH has been tested multiple times and it has been rising. So far the highest result has been 3.0 uIU/ml. It is within limits....

    I went to the ER twice in one week. I’m experiencing terrible chest pains that radiate down my arm and jaw. I’m also experiencing teeth pain on the lower left side. My neck is starting to hurt and im having new pain under my arm pit. I haven’t been sleeping due to the pain. I advised the hospital of this and I suggested my teeth were the culprit and they basically thought I was crazy and that they have no connection with each other. The first appointment they diagnosed me with reflux so they prescribed....
