Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
This is concerning.
Ye it can be Afib or supraventricular tachycardias or vetricular tacharrhythmias --all possible with history of heart disease.
Also you may hae devloped heart failure.
Given the history of alcohol and smoking, they can affect the heart muscles and reduce the heart function.
You will need to go to the ER for faster evaluation.
If arrhythmias, you will need diffeerent medications.
In case of heart failure also you will need additional medications.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
