Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,

Your symptoms do not seem to be related to any cardiac disorders. Anxiety may trigger all this clinical situation. If the problem persists, I would recommend consulting with your attending physician for a careful physical exam and some tests to investigate for the possible causes underlying your complaints:
- A cardiac ultrasound and resting ECG
- An ambulatory 24-48 hours ECG monitoring to investigate for cardiac arrhythmia
- Complete blood count
- Blood electrolytes for any imbalance
- Thyroid hormone levels.

If the tingling in the fingers persists, I would recommend consulting with a neurologist and performing a nerve conduction study to investigate for any possible pinched nerve.


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

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka
