What you need right now is a good clinical evaluation along with investigations like ECG,2D-echo and if needed stress test etc to evaluate your cardiac status.

After that treatment can be planned either on OPD or IPD basis depending on investigation results.

But you should bring this to notice of your doctor sooner.

Hope this answers your question.
