Hallo Chrisna
Yes, I think your doctor should examine your heart and exclude a rythm abnormality. It can also be caused by panic attacks or anxiety but physical problems should first be excluded.

Wow Chrisna, I''ve had exactly the same problem for a couple of weeks now. It comes and goes though. I haven''t been able to exercise as I used to because of the shortness of breath. I couldn''t even clean the house yesterday because I felt to so dizzy and lethargic. I''m also interested in finding out what causes this?
