Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
This is not normal at all.
YOu need to see your Gp and request for a 24 hour holter monitoring.
You may have atrial flutter or fibrillation, or supraventricular tachycardias.
These are different types of cardiac arrhythmias causing symptoms.
They can be treated after confirming the diagnosis.
Also some blood tests are required to check for any excess thyroid function ( serum TSH, free T4, T3), liver and kidney functions, serum electrolytes ( potassium and magnesium deficiency), blood count.
Please do not delay the evaluation.
YOu can try magnesium supplements 400 mg daily which often helps temporarily.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
I am Dr Basu experienced in Cardiovascular Diseases.
