HelloAt age 65 a racing heart requires an exam.In fact atypical angina can give all of these symptoms, even if one can assume it is viral.I would see your doctor now, or urgent care.You need someone to listen to your heart, and to possibly get an EKG. OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
