I'm a little scared I've been experiencing rapid heart beats for the past two weeks and it's been happening everyday as a matter of fact it's happeing right now... and I'm currently at work,, I don't know what to do I'm 39 years old, african american woman and I am a little over weight. Does anyone know what I should do I know the obvious is go to the doctors but has anyone had a similar experience.
tightness in my chest and always tired I get so sleepy and I don't understand why. I mean this has happened at least 20 to thirty times a day and it's really scareing me I do have an enlarged heart but this is something new, very new to me
When I had my a-fib or a-flutter attacks I would get tightness in chest with the flutter and I would feel tired. My EP told me I felt tired because my heart was racing so fast that it was like I ran a marathon. Please, call your doctor and make an appointment, you need to get this checked out.
