Question feels like heart stops beating

when lifting anything with weight,gripping anything with strength,bending forward(usually from a sitting position) or moving my shoulders or arms suddenly I get the most horrible reaction...I feel like something moves down the middle of my chest and my left side(by bowel) and my heart acts up like it stops beating and I can't talk and I just have to wait it out(a few minutes)...it's frightening and I always sit down(sometimes kind of fall down)...then sometimes(not always) afterward my heart will beat a little faster.........I absolutely feel so overwhelmed by this...I was diagnosed with heart PACs a couple years ago,but to me whatever is going on is effecting my heart...I also have asthma and possibly IBS...it's scary,but there's no pain before,during or after these episdes....PLEASE ANY HELP MUCH APPRECIATED

Re: feels like heart stops beating

Greetings a call to 911 is appropriate in my opinion. A call to a cardiologist after the emergency room visit is also appropriate. I would not lift heavy weight anymore, lifting something too heavy sometimes ruins a heart valve, especially if proper breathing techniques are not used. Peace, sjb
