For the past two days I have had a really irregular heartbeat, like it beats really, really slowly for a second and then it goes away. It is very noticeable and it has happened about 30-40 times over the past two days. I also started experiencing slight chest pain/tightness and a little bit of difficulty breathing. I do have slight asthma, but haven't had to use a rescue inhaler for nearly three years. It does not feel anything like an asthma attack. I have a headache too, but I don't know if that's related to the heart rythem problems. I just get this really weird feeling that something is not right with my body, but I seem to have really vague symptoms. Why am I feeling so strange, and are slow heartbeats normal? Should I see my doctor, or wait and see if it goes away?
