Suggest treatment for rapid heart beat and nausea

I am 37 and have had to episodes of rapid heartbeat,nausa and dizziness out of nowhere. I had to sit down and wasn't sure if I was going to passout or not. This last one has left me feeling like something is in my chest. I also vomited this time too. My husband said I lost all color in my face. I have never had anything like this before. What could it be. I just had a full workup a month ago and was fine.

Cardiologist 's  Response

I passed carefully through your question and would explain that your symptoms could be related to cardiac arrhythmia. Anxiety or an inner ear disorder can not e excluded either.
For this reason, I would recommend consulting with an ENT specialist in order to exclude an inner ear disorder and then performing some other tests:
- thyroid hormone levels for possible thyroid gland dysfunction
- a Doppler ultrasound of the carotid arteries for possible narrowing
- an ambulatory 24-48 hours ECG monitoring for possible cardiac arrhythmia.

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