Sudden painless shock in chest

Hi i am a 20 year old female. I weigh 130 pounds and my height is 5'6. I have absolutely no history of cardiac diseases. I have a normal blood pressure 110/60 and normal resting heart rate of around 56. Since the past few weeks i started experiencing palpitations that felt like my heart stopped for a second. They are painless and are not accompanied by any other symptoms. And happen around twice or thrice a week. I got very worried and visited my doctor. She had my chest xray, ekg, blood tests and thyroid tests all of which came out fine. However yesterday i experienced an intense shock like feeling as if my heart stopped again, in the center of my chest it was absolutely painless and just left me startled for a second. It was just for a second and then i started walking around normally in the mall but i have a feeling that the shock like feeling was from my heart. Can anyone please tell me what it is and should i be worried because i have already got all my tests done and nothing came up
Thank you.

Hi simrah95

Thank you for your post!

Unfortunately we can't diagnose this occurrence for you. I've seen your other posts on your concerns about your heart health and that you have had tests that haven't come up with anything.

I think you need to continue working with your doctor on what may be going on. Also, do you have a history of anxiety or GERD issues?
