Is this possibly a heart condition?

Seven years ago I battled Anorexia as a teenager for three years.

For a few years now I've had a constant cold hand and cold feet feeling no matter the temperature.
I am exhausted everyday all the time for no reason whatsoever.
I have a flutter in my chest that feels like it skips a beat...A year ago my doctor told me my heart was enlarged and beat too rapidly.
In the E.R. they confirmed it but said it would be fine...so I didn't follow up with the cardiologist my doctor assigned me to go to.

I feel faint-like quite often and dizzy out of no where yet have not passed out since my teen years. I also tend to sweat very easily, even if I'm not physically active.

I plan on going to the cardiologist because of my family's worries, but I feel like it's being over dramatized and I can't afford extra payments as it is

Seeing a cardiologist is your best decison now.  Could be a benign arrhythmia, but you never know.  Have some tests and see what comes of that. Better to take it seriously at first. Take care, Ally

I remember reading somewhere that if the underlying problem of the enlarged heart is treated in time, it can be reversed. If it goes on too long it can be permanent.
I would take Vienna and ChatterAlly's advice and see a cardiologist. Sooner better than later.
Best wishes
