Hello and thank you for addressing your concern.

Don’t wait until you get the symptom. Take care of your heart starting NOW.

According to your statement, we believe early prevention is better than cure. Hence further (or ongoing) assessment might be the best way to go. In all honesty, there are a number of cardiovascular condition that could be predisposed to an individual with a history of diabetes and old age. But having a good medication control and regular visit to the doctor would be the best countermeasure for any unwanted condition.

Besides that, I humbly think the best way to convey your ‘skipped heartbeat’ experience is through direct communication with a cardiologist. With that being said, for the time being, I urge you to keep it on records for the duration, frequency and the symptoms’ intensity every now and then.

Chest pain can be a symptom of heart disease. Get a cardiologist to weigh in on your symptoms today.

However, the given information has only touched the surface of an underlying problem. I hope you would take the extra initiative to contact our doctor using this link (DoctorOnCall) in order to maximise the help that you can get.
