Hi,

I was wondering if i could get some advice because i've been fainting for about 6 years now but it is slowly stopping however since its started my heart goes really fast and feels like ive been running and sometimes get pains in my chest. It doesnt happen all the time but when it does i really notice it because it feels so fast and incomforable. Sometimes it can feel like its stopping and starting esspecially when laying down. When it does really fast it has made me sick a few times and one time my friend had to do CPR. I'm having tests done but worried if nothing can be found on these test then no one will believe me. Is anyone able to hepl or give me any advice?

Much appreciated
