Your symptoms are suggestive of heart arrhythmia. You need an Holter monitoring which is a tiny device attached to your chest for 3-4 weeks. This will take heart tracing and would detect the episodes of the fast heart beats.

You also need an echocardiography also for the evaluation by your cardiologist or primary care physician.

You would be prescribed some medications if the arrhythmia is detected.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
