I have been having the same problems, but they can’t find anything wrong with me. A doctor did suggest that acid reflux, instead of going up your throat, can make you feel like you are having a heart attack (racing heart, chest pains) and so lately I have been taking an antacid when I have been feeling that way and it has worked.

Sorry I don’t have much more help! I have been for an EKG, ECG, wore a Holter monitor, had blood tests, CAT scan and x-rays and “there is nothing wrong”. *sigh*

Ugh, welcome to the club. My suggested max HR should be like 185-190 and it routinely gets up to 205 when I work out after jogging for like 3 minutes. My heart just kinda sucks. :p

Make sure you find a cardiologist you’re comfortable with and that will listen to you. I went to one that rarely takes on younger patients (I was the only one in the waiting room under 60) and it was very obvious that he and his nurse weren’t taking me seriously. I kept telling them that it wasn’t normal for a 26 year old to have a HR of 200+ after 3 minutes of light jogging and the doc just kind of smiled at me like “Aww you youngins always exaggerate.” They got me on the treadmill and did a stress test and lo and behold – my HR shot up to 190 after about 2 minutes of jogging and they were both surprised. I went through the sonogram of my heart and even wore a heart monitor around for 24 hours, but I just found myself not liking the doctor at ALL which clouded my whole experience. I’m currently looking for a new one. :/

Sorry, I’m not really helping, I know. Just know that you’re not alone. Just make sure to know your limits when exercising. There are times when I try to ignore it and I end up hurting myself. I know it’s super frustrating not to be able to work out to your fullest ability, but your health comes first!
