I’m 21, I have been going to the heart doctors for the last 8 years of my life and they keep saying oh you’ll grow out of this etc. I’ve had a heart cath done before. I just want to know how to fix what is going on with me. I was also in the hospital the other day with a resting heart rate of 170. I’m on bystolic 5mg but it doesn’t seem to help.

Hello @awilhelm85,

Welcome to Connect. I can completely understand your worries – when we feel there’s something wrong, especially anything to do with the heart, it can be so frightening! You may notice that I moved your message and combined it with this existing discussion. I did this so that you can meet other members who are discussing much of what you are experiencing.

I also encourage you to go through some of these discussions on Connect:
– Heart Rhythm Episodes https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/heart-rhythm-episodes/
– Palpitations https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/palpitations-3/

– I'm having multiple odd episodes that are keeping me undiagnosed. Help https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/im-having-multiple-odd-episodes-that-are-keeping-me-undiagnosed-help/

Another factor to note is that a few other conditions can also cause this kind of pain – GERD, gastrointestinal problems such as ulcers, muscle spasms in the esophagus, a gallbladder attack, can cause chest pain and symptoms that mimic those of a heart attack or angina:

@awilhelm85, are you noticing any triggers or common factors before the onset of symptoms?

Jacob98898, I wish I could help. But one thing I can tell you is make sure you are getting enough electrolytes. Sometimes we take them for granted. The most important one to get is magnesium. You should be taking in about 430 mg a day of that particular one through food and supplementation — 1100 mg calcium and 4500 mg of potassium. Salt probably isn't an issue since it's everywhere. I was having serious irregular problems suddenly. While my cardiologists weren't willing to embrace the electrolyte thing, I started monitoring my diet and supplementing magnesium. Everything they couldn't fix got fixed. I wish they would have pushed electrolytes.

York cardiology from the UK has videos on YouTube about arrhythmias.

I listen to almost all of them. The doctor recommended a certain type of magnesium, magnesium taurate. Since I started taking it I have very minimal heart irregular beats.

I also am gluten-free, no red meat. I have seen great progress.No sugar.

I would get palpitations if I moved a certain way, if I bent over, if I ate too fast and my stomach got too full, if I would lay on my side’s while sleeping at night. It was crazy then I started taking the magnesium taurate and it helped immensely.

But then the following happened.

A week ago I got it ! Sudden onset of A fib from stretching my right arm overhead. 😩

Now it seems, I may have a vagal nerve that is being pressed by a muscle on the left side of my neck…From an old accident injury 10 years ago.

If you were having any kind of heart irregularities please have your neck checked and your cervical spine examined by a good chiropractor. You may need to get a CT or MRI done to look for any pressure on an artery or Vagus nerve.

Very few cardiologist will look at the neck for heart problems. Whether it’s a thyroid, impingement, or artery issue. Be your own best friend.

"Be your own best friend" Definitely, and remember that every doctor has lots of patients. You are the only one who can specialize in yourself and learn about yourself in ways that the doctors don't have time to. Be your own advocate and your own supporter. That's a win-win way to deal with problematic situations!

I have experience with palpitations in one episode of a fib.

I definitely would suggest seeing a chiropractor to make sure your cervical spine and thoracic spine are properly aligned.

Many people with heart issues do not realize that these areas of your spine can greatly affect your heart.

My EKG, echocardiogram and other tests were all normal. No one could understand why I was having the symptoms.

I got off of my metoprolol.

No one with any form of a fib should be taking a beta blocker.

I am gluten-free. I do not smoke, I do not drink, I do not take any kind of caffeine in any form.

I eat very healthy and only eat chicken or fish.

Lots of fruits and veggies, nuts.

On the advice of a cardiologist from York cardiology in the UK, I began taking magnesium taurate. This form of magnesium is excellent for the heart.

This plan, has worked for me.

So you may want to see a Chiropractor, consider magnesium taurate, and change your diet.

You can also view YouTube videos from York cardiology.

Get an echocardiogram /ultrasound of the heart done to rule out any physical heart issues or anatomical heart issues.

Have you ever had trauma to your neck or body such as in a car accident?

You may have a hernia pressing on the heart or pressing on the vagus nerve which will make the heart go crazy.

You are your own best friend.

Think about the questions above, find a cardiologist who is a functional and integrative physician, like the one in the video I posted above, and begin to try to narrow down what your own personal issue can be from. Listen to his videos.

Another great Doctor Who also does online consulting and gives a lot of advice in his videos online is a wonderful man who told me to switch to the magnesium Taurate. He is on YouTube under York Cardiology, he also is a cardiologist.

I take magnesium taurate three times a day, Coke Q 10, vitamin D, omega-3 salmon oil, and a raw vitamin B complex.
All for my heart.

Takes a lot of personal investigating.

I had two bouts in two days of A fib from bending over or slouching at the computer. Resolved in 30-40 minutes both times with coughing, slow breathing and trying to straighten chest.

I asked for a CT of chest after AM episode to look for hernia or maybe adhesion pulling or pressing on my vagal nerve which could through my heart out of whack.

God will give me wisdom I know. 😊
