Fluctuating pulse rate, dizziness. Consumed lots of coffee. Family history of heart problems. Check up required?

I woke up from sleep and my heart was beating super fast for a few minutes, now it s beating really slow. I was dizzy and drank some water. I feel better now, but my heart is beating really slow. I m 24 and in good shape, but I do consume a lot of caffinated coffee and heart problems run in my family. Should I go get it checked out?

Greetings from
I am Dr Sourav Chakraborty and I will be helping you with your query .

I have gone through your case scenario and I do believe you need to get your self evaluated by a physician .

Please get a baseline ECG and an echocardiography done for you which is very helpful in detecting obvious cardiac ailments .
Also do not consume coffee more as it is known to cause rythm disorder.

Clinical examination will be very valuable for you.
I assume you do not habits like drinking alcohol , smoking as these may aggravate your problem.

Don't neglect your symptoms and visit a physician soon .

Hope I have been able to help.
Take Care.
