My s/o has bpm over 100... the first one was 120, second one was on a ekg 104, then 104 then 100.  He has not seen a cardiologist and his internal medicine doctor who he has seen only once so far does not seem concerned. 
Symtoms: All the time dizziness, (for the past 2 1/2 months)
weakness all over.
Weakness in hands and feet that comes and goes. Tingling in fingers.
Sweating for no reason.
Swallowing trouble (clearing throat alot after eating meals & feels like there is something in the throat all the time),
restless legs syndrome symptoms,
numbness has had two bouts in right side of face/head, and some more numbness in face to a lesser degree.
Also is tired often, doesn't sleep or eat well, has a physically demanding full time job, has been off work for a month with no improvement.
Has has memory problems also for about 3 months or so.
Feels like he's in a fog
He stumbles frequently

THE dizziness and weakness is the major problems.

Does this sound like heart trouble?  And if so what tests should we ask for?

Hi froggygirl23, Welcome to healing well forum, we are happy to have you.  I am just sorry it is under these conditions.  I think several things would come into play here one being his age, weight, diet, and medical history including family history.  These all would have a factor in what is going on.  I would suggest him speaking to his primary care physician on what to do next and where to go for a referral and if a cardiologist is necessary at this point in time.   We are not physicians here and can only give advice/suggestions on our own like experiences.  I hope someone will post who will have some other insight for you but I would strongly defer to his physicians recommendations.
