Hello and welcome,

Thanks for your query.

Your presentation is very vague, but it could be important for you to please get yourself examined at the earliest. These symptoms could most probably be related to an underlying cardiac problem.

I request you to meet a cardiologist at the earliest, get a total body check up done, including an elaborate cardiac and diabetic profile.

It is best to diagnose these kind of things earlier than when it is too late.

I only request this to avoid any unfortunate events.

I wish you the best in health and a long healthy life.

Best wishes.

Cardiac Surgeon Dr. Nisarga's  Response
The symptoms which you are having are correlating with a neurological problem. If you have any back problem related to your spinal cord, these symptoms may appear. I dont think you have any serious illness. Just be watchful, if it recurs then consult a neurologist.
Make sure you dont have an anxiety factor in life. Anxiety attacks can be like this. Be calm and relaxed.
Good luck.
