Hi I am new here: I have a problem that has been going on for sometime but worse lately. i can hardly describe what it is because it is so weird; just trying to see if anybody else ever had anything like this.
I am 68 years old; i have had arrhythmias in the past but had tests and nothing serious was found. The "episodes" I get are so strange. I don't miss beats and my heart rate isn't fast or slow. I will just be sitting doing something, let's say i am on the computer and all of a sudden i get this "sensation" in the middle of my chest; i begin to feel really odd, i think maybe I will faint but i don't feel faint or dizzy. the episode used to last for only 2 seconds but now it is lasting maybe 10-15 seconds and this feeling comes over me that I think i will fall over but then it goes away. i am scared to go to a cardiologist but that is probably what i will have to do; just wondering if anyone ever experienced anything like it.
