Yes, this definitely sounds like anemia. Anemia is low hemoglobin which occurs due to blood loss and can cause palpitations, increased heart rate and chest pain, dizziness, shortness of breath etc.

This happens because the blood count being low and hemoglobin being insufficient to carry the required amount of oxygen to the body tissues, makes the heart work harder and beat faster.

Since, you already have a significant heart condition, I would suggest that you not ignore this and have yourself assessed as soon as possible by your PCP. A full blood count will confirm anemia and iron supplements can be started as treatment.

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.
