Wecome to HCM

After going thrugh history,you are having sudden episodes of tachy cardia 160 BPM certainly warrants a good clinical examination and search for the cause,

Resting/sleeping pulse is fast we should suspect thyroid disorder or Anemia.

sudden increase in heart rate could be a Paroxysmal tachycardia (Atrial) wchich can come suddenly and transiently.we should also look for any heart valve condition if any?

During Tachycardia shortness of breath is possible

Get examined by a Physician/Cardiologist and investgation like Comlete Blood Count and Xray chest,

ECG ,a 2 D Echocardiography and Holter monitering and Pulmonary Function Test .

Should give you cause of your symptoms and tachycardia.

We can treat accordingly.

Best of Luck to you
