Hello, Welcome to JustAnswer and thank you for your question.
Can you explain your symptoms in some detail >
Do you get dizzy when this happens ?
Do you have any previous medical issues ?
are you taking some medicine ?
Any tests done recently ?
Chest pain ?
DO you get short of breath on lying down ? specially at night ?
swelling of feet ?
Ok, thank you for your replies. None of these symptoms seem to be or cardiac or lung related.
Possible cause can be anemia or stress.
You need to have blood test to check for hemoglobin... and and ECG as a protocol to see the heart rate.
Well, there are few symptoms that are known for heart or lung disease these are not present in your case
you do not have high risk for heart disease
so it is very less likely to have heart disease in your case.
Heart disease has very different features which are absent in your case.
You have questions ?
Yes because when there is low hemoglobin heart has to increase its rate to manage the proper blood flow to all organs
so heart rate keep high in such cases.
In case it is heart related it is more at night, awakes person from sleep and is associated with chest pain or discomfort.
This shortness of breath seems more likely to be stress related and anemia related
because you mentioned that you feel tired as well
Heart palpitations in stress do occur at night but if they are awaking you after you went in for deep sleep then it means there can be a possible fast heart rate or arrythmia which needs to be checked,
A holter test is best for this which can help to rule out this anomaly.
Still i think it is more of your anemia and stress which is causing this, but in any case if a person is awaken from sleep with symptoms then it needs to be evaluated for possible arrythmia.
In case of stress it occurs in episodes
more likely be to a place related or occupation related in such cases.
It is very much possible if you have something on the back of your mind or something that is continuously bugging you
it goes in your sub conscious and creates a stress like situation.
In case of arrhythmia you need to have other symptoms
like dizziness, blackouts feeling of weakness and unable to carryout your work
It is possible because in stress arrythmias like atrial arrythmias are very common.
not in all cases you need to have all these associated symptoms.
so a mild type of arrhythmia can go on with stress.
It is possible that these problems can be together as incidental
physical effects are not serious in case of mild anemia.
Yes true, in case of extreme cases, most cases do not cause serious problems if corrected timely.
So best option/advise is to go see your doctor
have a blood complete examination
You are welcome.
It was nice to have chat with you.
