Hello,

After going through your medical query I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that your symptoms can be and cannot be cardiac but an evaluation is a must.

Kindly get an ECG, Echocardiography and USG abdomen done and consult a physician for proper physical evaluation and further treatment.

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

Regards,
Dr. Bhanu Partap,
