New and need some answers
Wed, 07-28-2004 - 11:16am
Hi all,

I am a member of the depressionsupport on ivillage but I am experiencing some

odd feelings and I was wondering if someone had some answers to my questions.

Lately ( for about 6 weeks now ) I 've been having chestproblems. Stabbing pain

in the chest, feeling of being full and what concerns me the most is that my heart

seems to make jumps. I had an EKG done a few years ago but nothing showed.

For a few weeks now my heart seems to speed up faster and slow down again with

those odd jumps inbetween. When it does that I have to catch my breath and

I get dizzy. The least bit of strain will cause my heart to "stotter".

Even as I am typing this my chest is hurting dull. Do any of you know what this is?

Or is there a test on iviallge i could take to see what those symptoms mean, IF they

even mean anything? I will appreciate any information anyone can give me.

Thanks for your help and GOD bless...
