Hello and thanks for writing in at HCM
I read your mail in detail. The symptoms you have presented are more likely to be AF (Atrial Fibrillation) as you present with palpitations and arrythmia. This is caused due to defect in the conduction system of the heart. It can be treated by beta blockers or calcium channel blockers as advised by your doctor.
No specific life style changes are needed for this but you have to take care while driving or doing some risk work as the episode might hurt you.
Consult your doctor and get to a diagnosis and start treatment soon.
Best Wishes
