I had a palpitation & felt breathless, weak and tired

I have just had lunch, had some pasta and a cigerette! I come back to work and just had a palpitation . Now i feel breathless, weak and tired, but fidgety at the same time. Do you think i ought to go and see a doctor or is it normal to have these. I have had about 3 of these in the past month. Thanks for your help!

To be honest, if they are happening infrequently there is nothing your doctor is going to be able to do for you. Keep track of what you are doing before, during and after these attacks as well as how long they last and the symptoms you have. That way when you do see your doctor you can have an idea of what might be triggering it. It's too difficult for a doctor to be able to diagnose something that happens 3 times a month for a few moments without additional information from you.

Hi, I have been having bad chest pains lately (it is like a sharp pain at the bottom part of my heart), I would also feel short of breath. This would often be accomponied by arrythmias or (and especially) heart palpitations. At first I thought it was just stress, but lately I have been feeling tired constently, I am also pale & nauteous & have head aches. Being only 18 I love sports! But the past week I litterally felt to weak to play. My heart would also get really sore. I am now ons iron defficiency pills. I completed my first warrior race today and am very happy to report that I had no discomfort in my heart as before whatsoever, BUT I am still constantly tired & feel physically weak. My muscles are like numb? Also, I can t help but notice this weird numb-like feeling in my left side chest? Should I be worried? Or am I just being paranoid?
