  I have had strange symptoms for a while now and I''m not sure what they could mean or if they''re related. For about twoweeks I''ve had discomfort in my chest. I wouldn''t say pain, although every now and then it is

A: Hi! Thanks for the question on the forum. The symptoms you have are very suggestive of GERD or even hiatalhernia wherein a portion of the stomach pushes into the chest cavity. Chronic cough (other than due tosmoking) is often due to GERD. The acid reflux can often cause facial flushing. Acidity, reflux, duodenalulcer can all cause pain in the back, chest and shoulder area. Also you must ask the doctor regarding thepossibility of pancreatitis, which can affect quite a few percent of people who have gall bladder and GERDproblems. Since the EKG is normal, chances of a heart attack are less. However at times EKG is unable to pickup a mild angina case. Hence it would be good to get a complete cardiac checkup which could...

Hiatal Hernia pushes some of the stomach up into the lower chest and can cause reflux oesophagitis which is commonly called heartburn, you can...

heart Papalations

A: Dear Kelley: You have done the right thing and consulted your Dr. I have also experienced these palpitations from time to time and have also read that they can be related to stress. You really have 2 choices, believe your doctor, take inventory of your life to see if in fact you could find ways to reduce stress at work and or at home. The other choice is to get a second opinion from a cardiologist, if possible. See if they would be willing to run a stress treadmill test to check your heart under fatigue and determine if there is anything to worry about. You see, just worrying about your heart is causing additional stress, therefore, a self-fulfilling prophesy. Drinking coffee can contribute to this problem too. So if you do, and...

heart rate variability

A: Dear Peter. The only concern is that anxiety and anger make the heart beat faster and are probably not good for a heart with coronary blockage because the increased heart rate requires more blood supply to the heart muscle.  This is a minor concern.  See if you lessen the anxiety or anger, or increase the dose of beta blocker. Please write back if this note doesn"t answer all your questions. David Richardson...

What is giving my father more frequent heart palpitations?

A: There are a number of possible causes. Sometimes palpitations (feeling the heartbeat) are the result of anxiety and have nothing to do with a heart abnormality. Palpitations can also be caused by irregular heartbeats, which may feel like extra beats or skipped beats. Even though this is common and usually isn''t serious, it can still be worrisome. On the other hand, palpitations can also indicate a more serious condition, such as atrial fibrillation, in which the heart beats rapidly and irregularly. Palpitations can also represent bursts of abnormal heartbeats that can degenerate into rhythms that don''t produce adequate blood flow, which may result in passing out or...
