Having strong rapid heartbeat, not dizzy. What could be the reason?

I am having a strong rapid heartbeat and although i m not dizzy, i ve been feeling like i ve needed to twitch. this only happens at night and it has woken me up 3 times, only when I don t eat much for dinner. I drank 2 bottles of water and ate a little since I skipped dinner, and it seemed to help for a bit. My heart is not beating as strong but still a little fast, and the twitches feel like they re coming back.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The event has to be documented. It is advisable to have it investigated.
A thorough history and physical examination is the first step -
ECG (Electrocardiogram / EKG) – Routine 12-lead – is part of clinical examination.
HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram / TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) /
LABORATORY work-up – all may be necessary for further assessment and assistance.

Relation to food may also suggest early Diabetes - A Glucose Tolerance Test may help

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
