Hi.

Whenever I over-exert myself by doing sport or things like that I get an unusually fast heart beat (I mean really fast). This means I have to stop what I am doing and when I rest the problem still doesn't stop until after about 7 or 8 minutes when it suddenly goes back to normal wit one pulse. I also get breathless and have slight chest pains. It seems very strange. Please help me!!!

  • Hi, I have exactly the same problem and you're the first person I've come across that has it as well! I think the problem is you're diet. I usually eat a lot of junk food and can be very unhealthy but since i've started eating more healthy and doing steady excersize it hasn't happened. I've been told its heart palpatations or something like that and it sometimes happens to me when I stand up to quickly or run too much which is annoying since im quite an active person. It also makes me feel very light-headed and i need to sit down and take deep breaths. It can be quite scary when it happens becasue my heart races stupidly fast for 10-20 minutes then eventually goes back to normal. I would really like to know what our heart problem is though since its so strange!!

With similar symptoms, 8 months later I got diagnosed with pericarditis. It took a while for all the symptoms to show up too for a proper diagnosis.Slight chest pains while exercising is NOT normal.Slight chest pains while exercising is NOT due to diet. Don't let anyone ever tell you that.Slight chest pains while exercising is indicative of something going on which needs to be investigated.Something is not right with your heart. It could be minor or something major. Get tested until you find an answer.An elevated sed. rate with an elevated WBC and the chest pain is what I had for months before my diagnosis. My resting heart rate is 54 to 55. When I got diagnosed it was 120 to 154! And I had several kinds of arrhythmias. One kind which can cause blood clots to go into the lungs or heart or brain. You don't know if you have an arrhythmia and what kind unless a doctor hooks you up to an EKG. I didn't even know I had a racing heart because the pain by that time was excruciating.

  • It's always best to see your Doctor for heart related symptoms, but I've heard many people mention similar symptoms and they all had heart murmurs.....Samanthahttp://www.undiagnosedillness.org
