Question?: Not sure what your question is. If you're prone to bouts of rapid heart beat, a 24 hour recording (or 30 day, if needed) can help your doctor determine what type of rhythm disturbance you have which is essential to choosing the right course of treatment. ...Read more

You have panic attacks, that can be another reason. But first please make sure that this is not related to heart condition. Sometimes it can be atypical nature of pain. Talk to your doctor more about it for appropriate testing. ...Read more

In any case try advil or aleve or your Ibuprofen and see, and then go see your doctor and discuss it. ...Read more

ER visit now: Seems atypical for heart attack but cannot rule out. Also blood clot in the lung and tear in your aorta should be considered and ruled out. Hence any acute onset chest pain deserves an immediate evaluation. Please go to the er. ...Read more
