Deep Breathing and heartrate

I have many problems and have been ill for a year undiagnosed. Periodically, i get heavy heartbeats that last hours. In the past i used to use breathing to slow the racing heart down. Back then i would inhale, then exhale slowly, and the heart would slow down always when i exhaled. Now a slow exhale does not slow the heart down at all, it has no effect. Does anyone know anything about this?

Re: Deep Breathing and heartrate

Do you know what triggers your heavy racing heartbeat? Salt/dehydration/sugar/caffeine/heat/stress? Any clue?

You need to get to a doctor and get checked out. You are having problems and need attention. You will never be diagnosed if you do not go to a doctor and get checked. Please go the doctor as soon as possible. Probelms tend to become major when ignored too long.

It sounds like aslo has been to the doctor but they are unsure what's wrong with him/her. Unfortunately that is all too common today. The healthcare system in America is often no better than that of a 3rd world country.

Re: Deep Breathing and heartrate

Yes I have been to many doctors for my assortment of problems that have been going on for a year. I guess noone knows about the question i asked, and that all of you when checking your pulse can slow it down with an exhale?
As for Timber, no i dont know what is causing the pounding. Its not really palpitations as the rate is still around 70, but it is pounding and uncomfortable. I do have panic disorder and depression, and i am taking medications, i feel from enduring all this for a year without diagnosis.

Aslo, I don't know your age or gender, but I suffer from a similar sensation - a heartbeat that is of a normal rate, but pounding/heavy - but it is ALWAYS in the two weeks before my period. Any idea if there could be a hormonal correlation for you too?

Re: Deep Breathing and heartrate

Timber i am a male, and as such dont have menstruation, but it could be hormonal, sugar, thryroid related, but all my testing so far says no.
