Hello there

After going through your medical details I understand your concern and would like to tell you that your symptoms can be due to a heart rhythm disorder which happens due to a electrical conduction imbalance and needs further evaluation.

It's advisable for you to get an ECG, echocardiography and a Holter monitoring done to diagnose any underlying heart disorder and to decise line of treatment.

Hopefully this information will answer your query.

Kind Regards
Dr. Bhanu Partap
