Re: chest sensations

Posted By Linda on May 19, 1999 at 10:44:47
For the past 3 months I have been experiencing some sensations like a thump in my chest.  The closest I notice one to the next is about 7 minutes and often times I have one and then don't notice another for a number of hours.  A GP told me that they were most likely extra heart beats that were benign.  For the last month I have been experiencing episodes of lightheadedness-at times I feel for a fleeting second that I might fall over.  It goes away also.  There is no chest pain involved.  Would these symptoms warrant a check by a cardiologist.  Thank you for your help.
