Smoking addiction, pounding of heart, fluctuating blood pressure, pulse rate. Suggestions?

For quite some time now, i have the feeling of a pounding heart. I check my blood pressure and pulse rate often which fluctuates during the day. At times, my heart rate will be 116 resting but at other times it will be 67. I also feel a bit of heavyness in my chest . I am a 30 year old female smoker. Could this be a result of my smoking? I can feel the pounding almost throughout the entire day even hours after I have smoked.

Hi , your symptoms are suggestive of coronary insufficiency . As per your history i see smoking as one of the risk factor for accelerated atherosclerosis and coronary insufficiency.My advice to you would be please visit your physician get your self checked your blood pressure and blood sugar level to be checked as well. Also get a resting cardiac EKG and a Echocardiography and lastly stop smoking. Take care .
