i'd like to post something I've been through and i don't know what to do or what does it mean , is it illness or just something i can ignore ?
first : when i get up from sleep or when im doing any kind of activity suddenly i feel like a so thin needle stabbing my chest pointing on my heart , this has no time its just coming suddenly .
second : when im doing any activity too , sometimes i feel like my heartbeat suddenly changed , first its normal then it stops just for short time then first beat is so slow until it become normal again , it feels like some kind of huge object entered my heart and stopped it. i don't know if that's what you mean by skipping heartbeat , & i forget to mention i had past heart illness which i had surgery to cure it because of the increase of the heart size.
what do you recommend me to do ? ECG or just regular check up ?
please if anyone is expert reply asap please ..
This is only the members section. We are not doctors and cannot advise you on what you should do but if I were you I would go see the cardiologist for a check up. You have a heart history and are having new symptoms so it is worth getting evaluated. The symptoms may be nothing but just go get a check up to be sure. Take care and keep us posted on how you are doing.
