Heart beats fast randomly.

sometimes my heart will beat really fast out of nowhere, like there is a spasm and its really uncomfortable and it makes it hard to breath and everything is almost completely black to where i can only kinda see outlines. usually if i sit down and try to breath it will just stop, like it wasnt even there, but last time it happened i was in school and it didnt stop for almost 10 minutes and it was on and off for about 45min. does anyone know what,why, or how i can stop this?

The most likely thing this can be is Wolf-Parkinson-White Syndrome. You need to get to a cardiologist right away to have this checked. It could become life threatening if the abnormal rhythm continues for a prolonged period of time. If this is what it is, it will happen all on its own every now and then. This can be corrected by a same-day procedure called "cardiac ablation".

Not at all. For most people, it shows up in their adult years.

Is it something I really need to get checked out or anything I can do? If i try to talk to my parents they will just tell me it's all in my head (Ive had a history of them telling me this) and they are not exactly "prompt" at getting me to the doctor for any reason.

That's something you'll have to take up with them. I can't give you any more info being that you are a minor, so it seems. They are more than welcome to calll me for an online consultation so I can give them more info. There is info on my website about my online consulting service.

I've never heard of "antonels" and neither has any drug reference that I use. WPW can only be diagnosed and treated by a cardiac catherization and ablation. You need to see an actual cardiologist. This is not something that a general practitioner would typically know about unless he has had experience with it, as I have. It sounds like you may have it. Although it is rarely life threatening, it certainly can cause fainting episodes and lightheadedness.
