    Hi. I am a 57 year old male. I drink 1 pint of Bourbon a night. My BP (even after Clonodine, Losartin, Water Pills (?), and Norvask?) hovers around 190/110. Over the past ten years, I have had increasingly bizarre sleep disorders... I know I am going to sound weird, but here is what transpired: First, there was a "buzzing feeling" in my nose as I fell to sleep. Next, it progressed to a "electric shock" in my forehead. Then, a SEVERE shocking feeling, lifting my body from the bed....

    Strange symptoms no answers and scared

    So I’m in my late 30s. And last week along with this week I had two separate incidents of severe chest pain into my left arm paired with rapid heart rate and the feeling that I was going to pass out. Both times I went to the ER and both times all tests came back negative for heart issues. I am still getting random stabbing pains in my chest and into my left arm but these are not paired with the rapid heart rate. Additionally about 11 mos ago I had an epidural placed on a vein. They put a test dose....

    Left side of chest/shoulder pain

    I recently went to the doctor for bad chest pain, more so on my left side, going to my shoulder and also my throat. I got an x-ray, EKG, and blood work done and all came back normal. The doctor said that I have GERD and that is what's causing my pain. I've taken the medication given to me and quit drinking alcohol as directed but the pain is not going away at all. My heart also tends to race when doing minor physical activity and after drinking water, smoothies, etc.

    Peak heart rate while exercising, otherwise healthy

    I am female, 43, pretty healthy (need to shed about 5 extra lbs), exercise regularly. My blood pressure is normal, as is my cholesterol. When I exercise (I do kickboxing intervals and running), my heart rate reaches peak exercise very quickly (like within a few minutes) and I operate around 189 bpm unless I slow down to walking speed. My rate goes down very quickly, as well, which I understand can be interpreted as a positive. I just worry that I might actually be harming myself, though I have no....
