It really depends on how old you are, and if it is causing you problems. I feel like my heart is speeding up sometimes. It did it more when I was younger, and I was a lot healthier then! If you are feeling faint or pass out during one of these episodes you definately need to have this checked out. Now, if you feel just fine other then the heat beating feeling, I would say you are ok! If you are going to have tests done, start with an EKG, and the blood tests :BMP, Mag
, Phos and Ionized Calcium., and a set of cardiac markers. Do a CBC if you are feeling froggy... it wont tell you much about your heart, but it will tell you what your white cell count is (WBC
) and Hemaglobin (Hgb) and Platlets.
