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

     The limited information provided is not sufficient to conclude
     You should consult a cardiologist
     A thorough history and physical examination is the first step -
ECG (Electrocardiogram / EKG) – Routine 12-lead – is part of clinical examination.
     24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring of Blood Pressure and Heart rate (Holter) is done to analyse and plan for further management, if a routine ECG does not show. It may also detect silent (no symptom) ischemia.
     ECHOcardiogram is necessary to see the heart valves (Mitral Valve Prolapse) / heart muscle (Cardiomyopathy) and heart function (Ejection fraction, wall motion abnormality) / clots...
      TMT – Treadmill exercise ECG; may be with thallium isotope – is necessary to evaluate ischemia (reduced blood flow / Coronary Artery Disease)

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
