Hello,
Thank you for your question.

i am 33yr and my breathing is fine i am having anxity but feel fine beside the puls feeling in my stomach i dont know how to read rate or count rate but if you tell me i can try
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 2 months ago.

I am sorry for your health condition.

It can be counted at the wrist.
There can be palpitation or rapid heart rate from different causes.
Irregular rhythm can cause it.
There can be sinus tachycardia, supraventricular tachycardia, atrial flutter or fibrillation.
Anxiety or panic attacks can be factors.
Excess caffeine, alcohol can contribute to it.
Ischemia or low blood supply to heart can be factors.
There can be electrolyte or hormonal changes.
If the rate persists or if you have any other symptom like chest pain or shortness of breath, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor in ER.
An EKG, blood work, echo would be required.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.

in 30sec i counted a puls of 50
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 2 months ago.

A pulse rate of 50 would not cause palpitation.

How are you feeling now?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Still haveing the pulse under left rib but feel fine besides that
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 2 months ago.

There can be muscle twitching too.

You can wait & watch.

Please avoid anxiety.

However, if the symptoms continue, please take an examination by doctor.
