Hello Pearl. So, for...

Hello Pearl. So, for the past couple of months, I have had symptoms such as awareness of heart beat, skipped beats, and dizziness. My blood pressure I believe reads at 117/80. I would like to understand what this could mean? I recently had a blood test, and all results came back normal, apart from a vitamin D deficiency.

Doctor's Assistant: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

I know my grandmother had a weak heart before passing. That is about it. In general, I feel my health is good (apart from these symptoms). I eat fairly well, I exercise 3-4 days a week.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My mother is diabetic, my father has had thyroid problems.

Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 32 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry you have concerns about your heart.

The symptoms you are experiencing may be related to an abnormal heart rhythm. May I suggest you schedule a visit to your PCP or a Cardiologist for evaluation which will include a EKG and pending the result, possibly a Holter Monitor to check your heart rhythm for 12-14 days. Your blood pressure is not causing the dizziness, as it is in a normal range. Your symptoms are not life threatening, but should be evaluated soon.

I hope I have addressed your concerns.

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, so I am compensated for my service, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
