Palpitations, blurry vision, normal EKG. Want diagnosis

I ve been having palpitations often for the past 6 months I would say. Usually I ignore them but today while laying on the couch, my heart started beating odd in a flip flop motion. Usually it subsides but it kept going for 45 seconds- 1 minute. I was home alone so I ran out of the house and my vision went black/blue and blurry. It scared me and I really want help. I know this is more than anxiety .. I ve had an EKG and chest x-ray .. all normal. But I need some sort of diagnosis please.

Cardiologist 's  Response
Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

     The first step is to see a Cardiologist / Irregular heart beats need to be DOCUMENTED by ElectroCardioGram (EKG). / Standard ECG records the electrical activity of the heart, for a few seconds. It can detect the arrhythmia occurring during that time only. If the episode occurs randomly, one needs Holter or event monitor. Holter records for days; Event monitor for weeks / Holter records continuously / Event monitor only at certain times .
     ECHOcardiogram is necessary to see the heart valves (Mitral Valve Prolapse) / heart muscle (Cardiomyopathy) and heart function (Ejection fraction, wall motion abnormality) / clots...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
