For the past 3 days at work I've been having intense heart

This answer was rated:

Hi, for the past 3 days at work I've been having intense heart palpitations where my heart feels it is racing and pumping out of my chest, my chest feels very tight and I can become rather dizzy. This used to happen occasionally but has now become almost regular
JA: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?
Customer: My grandfather has a few stents in but apart from that nothing! I've gained some weight over the last few months but nothing else irregular
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: Not that I can think of !

Thank you

How old are you ?

Do you have an ECG or thyroid function test done ?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
I am 21 ! I don't have either done

Thanks for the details

I think you should have an ECG

If that is normal then you should have thyroid function test

If that is also normal then it can be due to anxiety or stress

You should have a blood test to rule out anemia as well

Please do let me know if you have any other question
