    Heart rate

    My heart rate has been erratic for months. I'm jumping from 54 BPM to 197 in a matter of minutes. It stays high for a few minutes and then drops down low. To 65. My chest hurts often and there is a hard lump. I have had a mammogram and they couldn't tell because of density. All test come back normal. I have had siezures when it jumps. The doctors say it is stress. I exercise but I'm far from an athlete. My heart rate while sleeping is mid to high 40s. Is anyone else going though this....

    Cardiac Advise

    My husband got his test results back and has to have angioplasty done on his right and left iliac arteries one is 85% blocked and the other is 50%. But with the same test they found he had a 75% blockage in his Right Renal Artery and his dr told us that because he is not on blood pressure medications that they weren't going to do anything about this that it was nothing to worry about. And I am thinking this dr is very wrong! With a 75% blockage I believe he should be getting something done am....

    Sleep Shocks, Extremely High BP, Clammy Skin, Chills

    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....
