Thank you for your question, with strong family history of heart disease these symptoms can be due to fast abnormal heart rate which may be result of underlying heart disease, to approach this issue we need to get a holter test for 24-48 hours and get a stress test to see if there is any abnormality. Stress tests are best to reveal hidden heart ischemia or angina. Let me know if you have questions, thank you.

Thank you for your reply, dizziness and palpitations can occur with low heart rate, it seems like your heart rate is low which is causing these symptoms, even with low heart rate holter is still the test of choice.
