You should get your cardiac enzymes done at the time of these attacks. An ECG is very non-specific and does not rule out a cardiac dysfunction.

Yet again, if all is normal with your heart, get your thyroid function tests done, as this is one of the common reasons for getting palpitations.

I hope this helps you.

Hi welcome to HCMForum. these symptoms could be predisposing features of myocardial infarction or may not.
But doubt of cardiac involve ment should never be kept pending. I advise you to consult a cardiologist to exclude
cardiac involvement by taking ECG ECHOCARDIOGRAM T.M.Ttests. Other possibilities are stress tachycardia
or gastritis.
