Lately my heart pounds rapidly, more than 5 times a day; it is the kind of feeling like when you’re excited or surprised or scared. Could this be a mild heart attack? Should I consult a doctor for this? This has been happening for more than 2 weeks ever since I met and chatted with a male colleague, who came to my office for some training (we are located at different offices and never spoken to each other before). I know some of you might think that it’s an attraction or perhaps infatuation, but I believe I don’t feel any of those. However, he keeps visiting my head since that day I spoke to him, and then I felt my heart beat racing. Any advice, possibly from a doctor? Please assure me that it’s not that I’ve fallen for him or something cos I really don’t think that’s what I feel. I don’t really know him and we’ve met only a couple of times since I started working here a year ago (he’s been here for some 5-6 years, I heard). Thank you for your kind advice.
