Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

Hi Diala..,The above signs and symptoms are suggestive of Ventricular Ectopics... This is caused due to ectopic impulse generated from the heart.., its seen in few patients , presents with palpitation., some times Breathless, .. you must get clinically evaluated and treated.. consult a cardiologist..
Hope I have answered your question..
