I am feeling a very fast pulse, above 120 bpm in my stomach

Customer Question

I am feeling a very fast pulse, above 120 bpm in my stomach area, in my lower left (the way I'm looking), I have a history of seizures and take depekote daily and Lorazapam when needed. The rate of my seizures has increased tenfold in the course of the past week and my pulse is racing. I've consulted doctors but they don't seem concerned. I disagree, personally because I know myself, should I be worried?
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?
Customer: I think I covered it all.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer where you can place your fully refundable $5 deposit (plus $29 after the Doctor responds). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and connect you two.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Yes you should be.

Frequent convulsions can cause heart attack as well.

Lot of demand on the heart due to the excessive muscle and brain activities.

That can cause fast heart rate and even heart failure.

Hence you need to go to the ER for further evaluation.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
