I randomly get this thing where my heart skips, beats rapidly, then I feel hot all over and feel like I will vomit. Cause? Could it be heart related?

If you have chest discomfort, shortness of breath, lightheadedness or fainting that's worrisome. Start by seeing an internal medicine or cardiology doctor; depending on what else turns up, some tests are in order. ...Read more

Shortness in breath, pressure in heart, feels vomiting sometimes, dizziness?

Too young to be sick: People at the age of 23 rarely have any serious illness. This should be reassuring.
