: : Mariah you sound so much like me! I turned 24 today and have had problems with my heartbeat since I was in my early teens. I also go pale at times. The problem I have is my age! I have been to the Drs several times and they dismiss me because I am young to have heart problems. It was only last month after 8+ years of telling them that my Dr listened to my chest! Hard to believe that they had not even done this before. Straight away she told me she could hear a murmur. I was told at my age this was harmless even though I have had to stop work and most of my social life due to the fact that I am physically exhausted and sleep most of the time. I would like to ask this.
: : Is it normal for a 24yr old guy who has been told he has a clear sounding murmur to have a pulse rate of 192 for several hours when he gets up out of bed.
: : My friend said she can actualy hear my heartbeat clearly at times. Even though she is standing at the other side of my room. Is this normal?
: : My pulse was measured at 40 bpm last time I visited the docs even though it is normally 90.
: : I also have proof that my heart beats irregularly at times, I got so angry at the docs for not taking me seriously that I found a way to record the sound of it beating onto an audio tape. It sounds totally out of rhythm for periods of 30 - 50 mins. Not fast at these times but just out of time stopping and starting flipping and flopping and I have the evedence clear on a tape.
: : Sorry to run on but this is ruining my life because I am so tired all the time and have no energy.
: : Can You or anyone give me any advice? Is this similar to your symptoms? Are there any other young people who have these symptoms?
: : Thanks for reading this. J
: This sounds so familiar....I am going crazy with mine. Ruining my life also. I really don't know anything about it. My cardiologist wants to see me every two months. That makes me mad, why do they need to see me if everything is OK and if it's not OK why can't they do anything about it? I agree with you that our young age makes the Dr's believe evwerything is just fine. I would love to record my heartbeat, how did you do it?
: Good luck and I would suggest going to a cardiologist.
Hi Mariah. I agree with you. It does make you think, why would they send you yo a cardiologist every two months if everything was fine. I hope you get it sorted out. I feel that the longer we have these problems, its more likely to cause serious damage to our hearts! Know what I mean? I have an appointment for nov 1st to see a cardiologist at last!
It would please me to help you in any way. If you want to send me an email I can help you record your heartbeat. It could help you when you go to your cardiologist if you had a recording of it. I have managed to record loads of irregular beats. It is a little strange at first when you hear it, but really helps understand what is going on when you get the different symtoms.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Let me know if you are serious about recording your own heartbeat.
