I have been having a heavy chest for a while. Doctor has tests done but nothing has showed up. Last night I was fast a sleep when I was woken up with a heart beat that felt going very fast. It went away very quickly. Should I be concerned.

  1. Hello and thank you for your question. You should let your doctor know exactly how you feel and if it's not improving. Sometimes we must be our own advocates when we feel something is wrong. I am attaching an article written by one of our community moderators about fast heartbeats (arrhythmia) that hopefully will help you. Wishing you all the best! -Olivia
