I ve been having irregular heartbeats & I am suffering from arrhythmia

I m a 19 year old girl. I ve been having irregular heartbeats since about 5 years and most of them have been quite subtle. Some have been severe, in the sense that I fainted. Just a few days ago, I had an arrhythmia which lasted for more than 15 minutes, and I suffered shortage of breadth, dizziness, extreme cramping pain in my entire body and since then I ve been feeling unusual fatigue and weakness in my body, shortness of breath most of the time and a funny feeling in my upper chest spreading to my jaw, not to mention the nausea. What is it ?

Hi.. Are you sure that it was an arrythmia or you think it is arrythmia.. If you think it is then you may be wrong.. You may have to be evaluated and be treated accordingly.. Hence it would be good if you can see a cardiologist... All the best

Thanks for query,
I wonder why you did not consult any doctor during 5 years !
You might have thought that it may be due to nervousness,stress or anxiety.
But to be on safe side it should be evaluated.
consult your doctor and discuss.
Ok and bye.
