You may want to post your question in the expert forums to get more professional advice.  There is a fee but may be worth it in your case.  You might also want to post this in the kidneys section to see if you can get some help.  I wonder if kidney issues are contributing to your heart issues.  You say you fast, are you drinking plenty of fluids when you do this?  it is important to drink plenty of fluids so you don't shut down your kidneys.  Have you had your potassium levels checked.  Uneven levels of those can cause problems with the kidneys and heart so I highly suggest getting your blood checked fully to see if there are any imbalances or major issues going on.  Did you fast by doctors directions for the test or do you fast on your own for health reasons?  If you are doing it on your own I might avoid going on a fast especially if you are having such an adverse affect from it.  Maybe try and see a dietitian to make sure you are fasting and or eating in general in the proper way. From what I read the higher levels of creatine in your system could indicate problems with the kidneys but your levels are not super dangerous high so that may be why they thought kidney infection.  So again, drink plenty of water and maybe even cranberry juice I know helps for urinary tract infections and maybe even get your stomach looked at if you are having bad stomach pains.  I would think getting these things cleared up would hopefully help your heart issues but if you continue to have what feels like 5 second pauses then by all means go and see a cardiologist heart doctor to get that investigated.  it could be happening because your body is stressed out in general from the kidney issues or it could be stress or it could be totally unrelated but only a doctor can say for sure.  This said, I am not a doctor so please keep going back to yours if you continue to have issues and if you can do please post in the expert section for more professional input.  I do hope you feel better soon.  Stay strong and keep us posted on how you are doing.

hey thank you very much girl but the problem is that  they are not really much knowing about arrhythmia here i mean the doctors, even the first time i was having pvc they took it and showed clearly on ECG but they didn't find a clue about what part is contributing to it  or what treatment i should need so they have to send me to another doctor in Ethiopia a cardiologist because that is the closest place i can find cardiologist so the cardiologist said at that time it's mild but now after this long pause i am concerned
