If during the onset of symptoms you feel dizzy or collapse then it needs urgent medical attention with a baseline resting ecg and Holter monitor or Loop recorder if any further suspicion arises. For many healthy individuals ocassional feeling of sinking heart may not necessarily be due to cardiac in origin. There are many other factors, diet and medications that may cause the same feeling.
