What causes dizziness and irregular heart rate?

when ever I run a push vaccum cleaner or a push mower I get real light headed and end up with a headache and feel very shakey. In a sense I feel like I am walking around very light headed like I can pass out. I use to be extremely overweight but around 162 now but when I was at 280 this would happen during most strenuouis task, it only happens now when I do these two things. I use to get heart skips or flutters alot but rarely now. My father died of heart blockage and my mom has blood pressure issues and has had 2 heart attacks. Could this be related?

Hello,

I would like to tell that considering your symptoms and family history I would like to tell you that kindly get a basic cardiac evaluation done which includes ECG, echocardiography and a Holter (ambulatory ECG) and consult a cardiologist for proper treatment.

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

I m 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5 2 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I m really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I ve had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.

I am experiencing an abnormal heart rate. Over the last few months I have been having what feel like heart palpitations. Tonight, while sitting and doing nothing, my heart felt like it was racing. I took my pulse and it was at 98. It has been consistent between 90-100 the past hour or so. I feel nauseous and light headed. I do not know if I should go to the ER or not.
