Need more info: Your physical characteristics may play a role. Some questions you need to consider are the situations when this occurs. Is this whenever you are moving, or intermittent? Is it at certain times, like right after a full moon? It sounds like you have seen a doctor since you had a cardiac work up and know you have reflux. You could be anemic, but unlikely for a werewolf. More history please. ...Read more

Contact Cardiologist: You need an evaluation by your Cardiologist sooner than later. Make an appointment today. If symptoms are increasing in intensity go to the nearest ER. It may be as simple as a medication adjustment. It may be as serious as a stent thrombosis or other complications. I noticed that you did not mention any antiplatelet medications or other heart medications. Go to Doctor today! ...Read more
