Welcome back to Healthcare Magic forum!
You seem to be having an intermittent heart arrhythmia like atrial flutter, atrial/ventricular premature beats, PSVTs, ill sustained VT, salvos etc.
You should get a Holter monitoring- the ambulatory ECG, ECHO tests.
Sometimes Mitral valve prolapse syndrome can manifest with symptoms of palpitation, panic attacks and anxiety episodes.
You should consult a cardiologist and a psychiatrist and get examined in person.
You need to start the treatment after consulting your gynecologist.
I hope this review resolves your doubts, if still need some help please write me back. I would try my best efforts to help you out.
Wish you a pink of health!
