skipped beats
i am a 59 year old female.
every time i eat, my heart goes crazy skipping beats.  i am on atenolol-75 mgs per day.  should i go to the doctor?  i am not in any kind of pain.  it lasts about 3 hours.  and sometimes when i get up from a sitting position, everything gets black.  would this be connected to my heart or is this another matter entirely?  there is no sense going to the doctor if i don't have to.
thank you so much,
cathy

It is hard to say exactly what is going on.  Probably best to see what is causing the skipped beats with a heart monitor.  Not all heart disease is associated with chest pain.  A good history and physical, EKG and possible a heart monitor and echocardiogram may be necessary to figure out what is going on.
