Rapid heart beat, chest pain, breathing difficulty, cold sweats, nausea. What is wrong?

I want to know if I should go to the hospital. Sometime my heart will start beating really hard and fast when I am just sitting down. When this happens I get sharp chest pains and I feel like I can t get enough air no matter how hard or deeply I breathe. Sometimes I can feel it fluttering in my chest. That is also accompanied by sharp pains. I have cold sweats. Vomiting . Nausea . Should I go to the hospital?

Your description suggests that without any provocation, your heart rate increases at rest. How long have you been having this problem? Are you having an ideal body weight? Have you checked your thyroid functions? Are you taking any medicine which can make heart go faster? Is it related to your food?

If all these symptoms felt by you are coming all together, you must meet a doctor and discuss your problem without delay. He may order an ECG, thyroid function tests, and other relevant tests to find out the reason for your symptoms.

If the symptoms are coming on one at a time, anxiety states must be looked into. I hope you are not under heavy work pressures, business stresses or family–related stressful situations. Even then, a doctor’s advice at the earliest will relieve you much.

Hope you find a good solution for your symptoms soon. Thanks a lot for using
