Thanks for posting your query here.

You may be having an arrhythmia. Here one has recurrent episodes of heart beating fast. Some times these episodes could be XXXXXXX if the blood supply to the brain is impaired because of improper heart beat.

Such arrhythmia are most commonly encountered in people with pre-existing heart conditions.

Sometimes other conditions can aggravate such abnormal rhythm in the heart functioning. In your case the upper respiratory tract congestion could be one possibility.

A ECG taken during a episode will confirm the diagnosis. Please contact your doctor for immediate investigations and further management.

Hope this helps.

Take care.
