Increased resting heart rate

A friend of mine has had increased heart rate from Thursday last week. She went to the dr who said that her blood pressure was 138 over 70, but that her heart rate was 92, but not to worry about the heart rate, it is normal. Today she is dizzy, very pale and her heart is still racing. Should we see another dr?

Dear Sandra
I think she may need an ECG to just exclude an arrythmia. Get a second opinion
