Can you die from irregular heart beats?
I've been suffering these for a while and I'm really concerned about them. I've seen the doctor and getting some tests done this week. I'm really scared and I'm only 17. I don't take drugs or anything horrible to my body. It just...popped out of no where. My parents don't have this either and I know my grandparents don't have it either cause they are VERY healthy especially for their age. (About 80)

Oh dear. I'm so up set right now. Thanks for the information guys. I hope I get through this.

yeah you can die from irregular heart beats

my kids are 13 and 9 and have a long qt wave and it is just like that. they just started heart meds and might need heart surg. . and untill they find what is wrong you shouldnt do any sport like things.

Yes it's possible, but its more likely that you will have a PE (Pulmonary Embolus) or CVA (stroke) and complications from either of those, and death could occur. Don't worry too much until your Doctor has further investigated it though. It may just be as simple as an electrolyte imbalance or some other underlying condition.

The Irregular heart beats allows blood to pool in one or more chambers of the heart, and that can cause a clot to form. Should the clot be ejected during a heart beat it can go to the lungs and cause a PE, or up to the brain and cause a stroke.

If this problem cannot be resolved, the doctor will probably opt to put you on an anticoagulant to help prevent that blood from forming a clot.

There are many types of "irregular" heartbeats. Some are life threatening and some are benign. Your doctor will find out what is going on and put you on the appropriate treatment. Sometimes, there is no treatment that needs to be done.

Sounds as if it may be arrhythmia. Please look into righthealth.com for more information. They have a list of causes, symptoms, treatments, tests, etc. It's detailed, but please look it up so you will be more informed, if indeed you do have arrhythmia.

Please do not be overly concerned since stress can affect your heart rate, and if it is irregular....... Wait for the test results, do what your Dr. says.

I started having fast heartbeats at 17, and then had irregular beats when I was in my 20's. I am now over 50 and am still alive and well. See a cardiologist and get a work up. Find the causes for yours. I did mine and was put on meds that help. I still have the irregular beats, but I just deal with them. I know they are scary, but please get a good check up and educate yourself.
