It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. If you are overweight that may be part of the explanation and losing weight would be imperative. It would be prudent to see a doctor. Wish you good health!

Arrange to have outpatient heart monitoring until symptoms are recorded. Have a cardiac evaluation including examination of your heart, EKG, thyroid testing& treadmill stress test. If no arrhythmias , thyroid or cardiovascular pathology found consider stress management therapy by a mental health professional.
