Are rapid heart rate, blurred vision and shortness of breath a concern?

I have been diagnosed with CAD and arrhythmia. I have a stent in my LAD and a pacemaker. At dinner tonight I had a rapid heart rate ( 140), blurred vision, shortness of breath, and some pain in my left upper chest. This lasted for approx 30 minutes. When the symptoms subsided I was hit by diarrhea. Should I be concerned?

Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I would like to tell you that the symptoms of chest pain with shortness of breath and rapid heart happened most likely because of heart attack and blurred vision is associated to low blood pressure. It's recommended for you to get a ECG, Echocardiography and a Pacemaker interrogation done and personally consult a Cardiologist for further management.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
