Hi. We can continue after this if you'd like but with an irregular heartbeat and shortness of breath you need to consider this an emergency situation and get to a doctor right away. This could be a sudden onset of either atrial flutter or atrial fibrillation or it could be a pulmonary embolus and it needs evaluation and treatment before it becomes worse.
