Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is difficult to explain, without further information - the data are not detailed or specific. The possibilities are too many to narrate - a wild goose chase!
An EKG and ECHOcardiogram can be done in a few minutes / and will diagnose immediately / or suggest further approach..
Talk to your physician

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
