Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

     THE FIRST STEP IS TO SEE A CARDIOLOGIST / Racing beats need to be DOCUMENTED by ElectroCardioGram (EKG). At this age / if occurring for first time, Coronary Artery Disease has to be excluded first ... In suspected heart attack, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE – if detected early, an attack may even be aborted / the amount of damage and complications can be reduced remarkably. The most important time is the first few hours. You MUST GO THE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT – IMMEDIATELY.

     Anaemia / Anxiety / Alcohol / Tobacco (smoking) / Caffeine (too much tea, coffee, cola) / Fever / Infection / Pain / Stress / Thyroid / Vitamin D, calcium, magnesium / Medicines like Phenylephrine used for ‘cold’; Salbutamol used for asthma and so on - may be responsible.... / Illicit ‘drugs’ like Amphetamine are notorious to cause abnormal beats / At times, abnormal nerve paths in the heart (bypass tracts) or disease of the conduction system may be responsible!

     You should see your doctor as soon as possible... / Better be safe than sorry - treated if a problem is found; Happy, if it turns out otherwise

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
