I have query about my heart
JA: What are all your symptoms? Are you taking any medication?
Customer: Slight chest pain, fluttering heart, skipped beats. I have aCRT and take medication.
JA: Got it. Have you seen a doctor about the chest pain?
Customer: No
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I also have COPD

What are your age and gender?

What are your present medications?

Since when are your symptoms? And what are the investigations done for it?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
68 and Male. Entresto, Carvedilol, Statins, Aspirin and Aldactone. I have a CRT device. Slightly uncomfortable pressure on chest, left arm and shoulder uncomfortable for a time. Slight fluttering in heart and some missed beats. About one week ago, this started. No investigations as I am overseas.

Your symptoms are significant. Chest pain (even mild), fluttering heart, and skipped beats warrant an evaluation by an EKG, echocardiography, especially with a CRT device. You should consult a local cardiologist.

I wish your symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.
