Hi I am also having all these strange heart related problems for over a year now, they started for no reason. I am female 57 and live in UK, like everyone on here I have had several ECG's, X Ray, Blood Tests, Stress Test, Scan etc and am due to have a 24 hour monitor next week. Today has been particularly bad this morning sitting at work for no reason I could feel my heart racing, I felt dizzy and left arm a little numb, but for me I seem to have the added thing of sharp and dull pains under left breast and into middle of sternum, this sometimes goes through to back and throbs through chest. I Then walked home sat down and off they went again, checked heart rate, 99, not high I know but when normal resting is 72 or lower it is so worrying. I do suffer GERD and have noticed that when I eat my heart will sometimes race. I was told last time I was in A&E after 2 GP's spoke to me that they were flumoxed and that there is not always an explanation to why these things happen, but I am getting to the point that I am concerned to do anything or book anything too far ahead in case I have a heart attack and to be honest I am not sure if I would even know if I have one as I get pains with my palpitations. I know GP's say not to worry but how can we not when a fast beat could cause an attack. Sorry to sound so down but I feel so worried and am at the end of my tether with them and just want to get back to being happy and full of life which is how I was 18 months ago before all this started. Thanks for reading
