Based on what you describe, I would get: Thyroid Function Panel ECG Holter monitor I think you mean Xanax? This is a sedative anxiolytic used, obviously, to treat anxiety. It WILL NOT make her heart stop beating. It isn't a good long-term solution though because it is addictive and does not address the underlying problem. The vomiting I can't explain or link to tachycardia- unless she is tachycardic because she is so dehydrated from vomiting. She may have an SVT (a paroxysmal transient fast heart beat)- if so these are easily treated and carry a good prognosis.

Hi, my heart keeps fluttering for no reason. It gets faster and skips and flutters then goes back to normal. It s frequent. I occasionally have pains in my heart (with no fluttering). My gran and my dad had/have a leaky heart valve. Could I have it? I smoke and drink lots of tea but I always have so why now? Thank you.
