Hi I’ve recently noticed that I’m having heart palpitations more than I used too and when I’ve searched online I’ve come across a condition called AVRD and I’m now worried that I might have it. I occasionally feel light headed but I don’t feel faint. I have no other symptoms such as swelling or chest pains or being sick and as far as I know no one in my family has any previous history of cardiac issues. One explanation I have is that I suffer from medical anxiety so it could be from that. I am planning to go to the doctors to get this looked at. I’m 20 years old and male. Do you think this could be AVRD ?
