Pfo: A patent foramen ovale is an open connection between the upper heart chambers. The symptoms you note could indicate a problem associated with it. You should consult your dr. To see if something is going on with your heart.
Dr. Fuad Kiblawi
Pediatric Cardiology 28 years experience
See your doctor: A pfo is asymptomatic and does not cause the symptoms you mentioned. Sharp left sided pain can be muscle pain, but if you have generalized fatigue and heart racing/palpitations then it would be prudent to see your doctor and:or a cardiologist.
