Dear lybrate-user, Heart beating fast can happen in many hormonal and medical conditions, heart valve condition and psychiatric disorders. If you are afraid, your heart will beat fast. If your heart beats fast, you will be scared. It is a vicious cycle. Please go to a psychiatrist, get diagnosed and treated properly. He may ask you for few blood tests and an echo-cardiogram. Later prescribe tablets to treat. The acidity may be related to the tension and heart beating fast, rather than causing these. It also needs diagnosis and treatment.

Sudden Cardiac Death - Causes Behind It!

MBBS, MD , DM Cardiology
Cardiologist, Bhopal
Sudden Cardiac Death - Causes Behind It!

Sudden cardiac death occurs when your heart stops functioning unexpectedly and suddenly. When this happens if you experience sudden cardiac arrest and blood stops flowing to the brain and other vital organs. Sudden cardiac arrest usually results in death if it is not treated within minutes.

Occurring during a heart attack, the sudden cardiac arrest should not be mistaken for a heart attack. The immediate cause of sudden cardiac arrest is usually an abnormality in your heart rhythm, which is the result of a problem with your heart's electrical system. Your heart has its own electrical stimulator, which is a specialized group of cells called the sinus node located in the upper right chamber of your heart. The sinus node generates electrical impulses that flow in an orderly manner through your heart to synchronize heart rate and coordinate the pumping of blood from your heart to rest of your body.

If something goes wrong with the flow of these electric impulses through your heart, a condition known as arrhythmia occurs, causing your heart to beat too fast or too slow or in an irregular manner. Often these interruptions in rhythm are momentary and harmless. But if it is severe it can lead to a sudden stop in heart function.

Ventricular fibrillation is the most common life threatening arrhythmia which is the uncontrolled twitching or quivering of muscle fibers. It must be treated immediately to save a person's life. It can be treated by delivering a quick electric shock through the chest.

Risk Factors:

There are many risk factors that increase the risk of sudden cardiac death including the history of previous heart attacks, coronary artery disease, smoking, hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity and diabetes. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

Dear Lybrateuser, -Your pain in middle chest is due to hyperacidity -avoid spicy, fried & junk food, have fresh homemade food, instead of three large meals have 4-5 small meals including snacks, do not miss meals, have meals at fixed timings, chew your food well, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime, do not lye down immediately after meals -have 8-10 glasses of water for proper digestion & to remove toxins from the body -do regular exercises like walking, jogging, swimming for 20-30 min a day, also do yoga for good digestion -take syrup gelusil, 2 teaspoonful half an hour after every meal -also restrict intake of tea/coffee to 2-3 cups a day, have biscuit along with it to reduce acidity, avoid alcohol & tobacco completely if you consume it -if still not much relief then get investigations done, consult a doctor. -

Dear lybrate-user. Don't worry about your BP. Your BP is only harmful when it is continuously high for over a period of one whole year. You are just 35. You will be anxious when you take BP for the first time with your automated monitor. This is called white coat hypertension. Your correct BP reading will be after atleast 10 minutes relaxation. I will help you overcome your white coat hypertension. Take care.

Hello, Homoeopathic medicines are less invasive and have more herbal approach towards gaining the weight. There are a number of homoeopathic medicines, which treat the root cause behind the body’s inability to gain weight or bulk up. 1. Take alfalfa tonic (wsi), 2 – 2 tsp. Thrice a day, half an hour before meals. 2. Calcarea phos 200, 5 drops, once in aweek, morning empty stomach for 2 weeks. 3. Take eggs, milk, butter, bananas, potatoes, mangoes, figs, oats, soyabean and dry fruits. 4. Do light exercises regularly to keep your body active.

Tips for removing kidney stones: 1. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, cold drinks, pickles, fish, poultry, meat, spinach, and chocolate. 2. Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. 3. Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water lemon soda etc. 4. Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. 5. Drink more if you are perspiring heavily, working outdoors, the weather is hot, etc. 6. Increase the use of barley, horse gram (a type of bean), ginger, and brown rice or parboiled rice. 7. Avoid suppressing urges to urinate and defecate. 9. Boil 10-12 basil leaves in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey in it and take twice a day. Pls send your usg report becoz medication for stones depends upon size number and location of stones and can be given after usg. Consult your physician regarding hypertension clinically.

Only way to improve your hdl (good cholesterol) is by doing regular exercise & by following a stict low salt/fat diet. Avoid spicy, greasy, heavily salted preserved food. Tab niacin, antioxidants, grape seed extracts & resveratrol, omega 3 fatty acids have some value in increasing good cholesterol.

That is because sex is a good exercise. Your heart needs to work more at that time so it beats fast.

Hello sir
I'm 21 years old
And my weight 52 kg
And my height 5.5 feet
I have pain in my chest from 3 month.
Pin in chest at a age of 21 is highly unlikely to be of cardiac in origin. Most likely the cause of your chest pain is either muscular or acid peptic disorder or gastritis.

You can get non invasive cardiac ct scan of heart which is as effective as angiography but not traumatic, less time in hospital-only few hours & costs less -8000/- only. Good to know about your progress after stent. Keep it up. Scan is to know the present status of heart.
