Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
I had a couple heart palpitations last night, I struggled to sleep because I was worrying, I have felt exhausted after waking up, but not exactly tired, I have had a really bad memory today and everything feels like a mess, I struggle to maintain focus at the moment. I have not really experienced these things before, I have not been sleeping properly lately but I slept last night until I woke up. I have a metallic taste in my mouth sometimes, that came on recently, for the past week I have been experiencing bad blood flow in my arms/hands and feed/legs sometimes, they just seem to feel numb sometimes.
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Have you been in a lot of stress lately?
I don't feel like I have been but that may be the case
Have you been seen for this?Had any ECG done?
Something I would like to add now, I have not eaten much today but will be eating in a minute, I have also started feeling a little dizzy now.
My breathing just feels light, I am worried right now so it may be that.
I dont know what ECG is
As a general rule, any person who has heart palpitations, having dizziness and breathing problems should be seen in the emergency.
So that is what I would recommend.
However, having said that, your symptoms do not sound like anything serious.
Just sound like a lot of stress to me or anxiety more than anything else.
I don't have breathing problems I think, it feels like more of an effect.
So I would like you to be seen in the emergency for a precaution more than anything else.
I think it is more related to stress or anxiety.
I had 2 heard palpitations last night, none today
But I would still like that you should have a heart strip (ECG) done.
I feel like in might be that too but I want to be safe
What is ECG? A test?
It is a test
To check the rhythm of the heart.
Ok, my food will be ready soon, do you suggest I dont eat and go straight in or eat first?
You can eat first.
and then go to the emergency.
Well my heart has been a little different in the past hour too, but I am worrying a lot right now.
Does this match up?
You should try your level best to relax.
I think that it is stress/anxiety.
But I would still want you to get evaluated just to be sure.
Ok, there is one more thing.
Yes please go ahead
I just remembered, but sometimes when I need the loo if I have to hold back I get a bit hot.
That lasts a couple seconds when that happens
That is again not something to worry about.
But again I would recommend that you be seen just to be on the safe side.
Ok, thank you very much for your help.

I clicked 5, thank you ^^
You are most welcome.
After eating I feel pretty normal, I agree "better safe than sorry". But if my symptoms have gone after eating would that mean I am really fine? If there is any chance of me still having a problem I would like to go in so please give me your input on this, thank you.
