I will probably be getting a 2nd opinion from Cleveland Clinic about my severe tricuspid regurgitation and possible valve surgery. I'm 53 and in excellent health (5'-8" - 150lbs) except for the valve issue and the resulting congestive hepatopathy that have recently been diagnosed over the summer. Trans Echo and heart cath show normal heart function and no pulmonary hypertension........was told it was congenital issue with septal leaflet not closing properly.........pretty rare I guess as I've scoured the internet and can hardly find anything on this. Hope it's fixable but I'm sure Cleveland Clinic can fix it if anyone can.
go have a study called electrophysiology done, sounds like again, you could be having atrial fib or tachycardia, and the only way to tell this is to go to the right kind of doctor, and one that is used to doing studies with electrophysiology, take this seriously I had a life-threatening disorder until they lazer ablated a spare electrical pathway in my heart, and it is painless and I was back up running around the next day. Go get the study, they you will know, they don't need you to do the heart monitor thing, they have their ways to set you off and get your heart to do this thing, and really tell you what is going on! I have had it done, and it is okay, and I learned a lot about my problems and would not fool around with what you are describing. Hope this helps!
