Hello,
I am a 22 year old female with no previous cardiovascular problems.

This week I have had these flutter-like moments, a couple of times, just for a second.

Today, I felt something strange on my left ribs and I just randomly thought to measure my BP. It was 132/110 and the pulse was 112. I was feeling no pain, no discomfort, no shortness of breath and I have been resting all day, so no physical activity to justify those numbers.

I got worried to be honest and I took a Bisocor so it would calm the heart rate, and I lay down and took deep breaths to calm myself. The heart rate was still over 100 and this weird neck pinching feeling started. It is very random and I think it is more related to my position on the computer, but still, it started parallel to the high BP.

I haven't been in a lot of stress lately, but it is always present, so maybe that's the cause of it?

Right now my BP is 110/82 and heart rate 80.

I have never had high blood pressure and my resting heart rate is always under 85 and BP usually 11/70.

I am obese and I haven't moved much lately since I work all day (not a reasonable excuse in my condition, but anyway).
I do not consume foods high in fat or fried and the only cardiovascular issues in my family are from my grandma who is 67 and has a bit of high BP.

I am worried it might happen again randomly.

Should I get it checked out or could it be just stress, since I have no other symptoms and I do have anxiety and depression?

Thank you very much!

hi and welcome. stress does a lot of things, esp with our tickers. 112, not that bad. bp, well check it out, that is usually stress. mine has dropped. not up. go figure. walking will help. with blood flow, stress etc. a check up is always something I recommend. let us know how you go.

Thank you!

My physician said there was nothing to worry about, it might have been stress.
I haven't had any other problems with it since then.
