    Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum, a cardiologist and director of women’s heart health at the Heart and Vascular Institute at Lenox Hill Hospitalin New York, told Fox News. Symptoms of ARVD can include palpitations, shortness of breath and fainting. NIKI TAYLOR'S TIPS FOR JUGGLING MOTHERHOOD AND A CAREER Niki said Krissy Taylor never showed any direct symptoms but was generally an anxious person, especially before fashion shoots and go-sees. She would always say ‘ my heart’s beating so fast … I don't know what's going on, ’ so we just thought it was normal butterflies or excitement, but this was probably symptoms that something else was going on, Niki said. Diagnosing ARVD can be challenging, Suzanne Steinbaum said. Diagnosing ARVD’s normal for our heart to pound and pump when we get nervous or anxious, but walking around town and feeling your heart pound and pump is not normal, Suzanne Steinbaum explained. Diagnosing ARVD's really hard to tell the difference between anxiety, stress and really a heart condition, if you have symptoms of shortness of breath, if you have palpitations, if you feel dizzy the first place you have to think is your heart. So what I tell everyone is don't diagnose yourself, just go to the doctor, she added. To help more women understand their risk of heart disease, the number one killer of women, Niki partnered with the American Heart Association and their Go Red for Women campaign. We just want people to go get an EKG( electrocardiogram), your doctor will be able to know if you have heart flutters or an irregular heartbeat like Krissy Taylor did, and it could save your life.
