My wife just wole up and her heart seems to be racing at

This answer was rated:

My wife just wole up and her heart seems to be racing at twice the normal beats per minute. She feels week and light headed. She is now resting again and her heart beat seems to have slowed back down. This is the 1st time ever. She is 55, and a bit over weight.
JA: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?
Customer: My wife has been stressed lately and probably under a bit of depression. I do not believe her family has any major heart disease history. She has otherwise been in pretty good health.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Nothing I can think of at the moment
