Thanks for writing in.
Conscious Awareness of fast heart beat(palpitations)/ actual rapid heart rate(tachycardia
) could be due to many causes, like cardiac disease, anaemia, thyroid
disorders, low blood sugars etc.
I would advise you to get blood tests to rule out the above conditions. If all the test results come back as negative, please be reassured that there is nothing wrong with you and it might be a simple case of anxiety.
If chest pain
is due to gastritis
, taking aspirin will make your condition worse. Please visit your doctor for confirmation of diagnosis.
Hope this helps.
