Hypertensive 24 year old irregular flhttering heartbeat during exercise
So im 24 and I do exercise bike everyday at level 4 and decided to try five. Suddenly it felt like my heart jumped into my throat and for like 5-6 seconds I had this really scary irregular heartbeat, I immediately stopped and it went away.
Is this serious? Ive done 2x echocardiograms and an echo stress test in the past that were normal. Could it still be coronary artery disease or something more serious?
It does not sound like CAD, it sounds like a rapid change in your heart rate due to the increased need by your body for oxygen rich blood. You should mention it to your doctor, especially if it continues but I doubt if it's dangerous but I'm not a doctor.
