This can be cardiac arrhythmia like PSVT (paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia) or atrial fibrillation, in which heart rate suddenly goes up and also suddenly decreases. Blood pressure falls during these episodes and one has dizziness, fainting, chest pain or discomfort, blackouts, sometimes syncope. Usually, ECG is normal as it is usually done in between the episodes. ECG done during episodes will show abnormality.
You will need 24-hour Holter monitoring. So, visit a nearby cardiologist for these investigations.
Is there any stress or anxiety associated?
Until your evaluation is complete, you can ask your local doctor for tablet Ciplar LA (Propranolol) 20 mg once a day. Also, thyroid test should be done. ln order to abort such episodes, you should try to cough hard.
Hope this helps you and get back if you have any doubts.
