@MaraB992110 and welcome to the online community.

 

Your health issues as described are far outside my experiences. I'm neither a doctor nor a nurse. I am an herbalist, however these days (and for the last number of years) I only make medicines for my immediate family to address our (very low key compared to yours) issues. So I'm afraid I'm not going to be a much of a resource for you.

 

But have cheer, there are nurses and others here that may be able to make suggestions or observations for you.

 

So let's give them something to go on, shall we? (Keep in mind that nobody can diagnose you over the Internet. And that while someone may come along and say, "Hey, I think that sounds like XYZ is happening", any comments made here are not to be taken as medical advice.)

 

OK. So. You are a 37 year old woman. Do you have immediate family? Do they have relevant health issues? What type of work do you do (is it physical or mental, how much do you sit or stand during the day). What's your BMI? Describe your diet: what do you eat? Describe your exercise pattern and history. 

 

I wish you good health.

Hello there! This is my first time here. I would like to share with you some health issues that throuble my mind.
Generally, my health condition is considered to be ok. I do have hiatal hernia, i do have gerd and i do have one thyroid nodule 9mm but i do not take medication. I am 37 years old, woman. Since i was 24 my first pvc's came into my life.
This is a matter that always bothers me. Ihave done many ultrasounds, electrocardiograms, holters and so on. I have an unnoticeable mitral valve escape and the same to the pulmonary valve, but the doctors say that is benign, and everyone could have this. My pvc's they say are to little. According to my last holter i had about 180 pvc's and some ventricular extra beats. One doctor told me once that he noticed different pgysiology to two of them but he didn't tell me more. He just told me to keep stress out of my life. Generally i have stress almost all the time, especially health and money stress. But lately i have some weird symptoms. lets say yesterday i woke up and tried to make my bed. I bent over and the tachycardia began for 1 - 2 minutes or less and i felt like chocking in my throat. Then it stopped and i kept doing my housework. Generally these days my bowel was irritated. i think it was because of the milk with cereals i had. i also have a really bad posture. The day before that, three or four times that i needed to bend over to get something i had some pinches on my chest, for seconds. Also, the last one or two months, i get a weird feeling on my chest for little time like 15 or 20 seconds or even less. I can not count. It is not smushing, it is not something like pressure on it, it is not stabing. It is weird. I may say that sometimes it is not something like burning feeling, but much smoother in the abdominal area and over the chest bone and it stops before throat. I can not understand what happens to me. Sometimes happen when i am frustrated, or even when i just sit on my computer. it does not have any pattern i think.
i hope i can get any idea from you.

Healthy Heart Does Not Tire During Exercise

 A healthy heart is so strong that it is almost never a cause of tiredness during exercise. Tiredness during exercise comes from your muscles. They run out of fuel or out of oxygen. Skeletal muscles use both fat and sugar for energy. When your muscles run out of their stored sugar supply, called glycogen, they cannot contract and function adequately. You feel tired, your muscles hurt and you have difficulty coordinating them. On the other hand, your heart muscle gets energy directly from fat and sugar in your blood and even from a breakdown product of metabolism called lactic acid. It is virtually impossible for the heart muscle to run out of fuel unless you are starving to death.

 

A healthy heart doesn't run out of oxygen either. Oxygen comes to the heart directly through arteries on its outside surface. If these arteries are not plugged up with plaques, they are large enough to supply all the oxygen that the heart can possibly need. However, fatty plaques in arteries can block the flow of blood. When the heart does not get enough blood, it will hurt and can start to beat irregularly. Exercise won't make a healthy heart hurt. If you develop chest pain during exercise, something is wrong and you need to check with a doctor immediately.
