Increased heart beat after exercising. Cause? Have high blood pressure

I was on the eliptical machine exercising because the treadmills were out of order, that night my heart started feeling like it was jumping out of my throat. It still does it on and off but I dont know why and what actually caused this. I do have high blood pressure and am taking medication but I cant exercise anymore because my heart will start jumping again. What is this and why?

Cardiologist 's  Response
The first thing that has to be ruled out is an arrhytmia, or abnormal rhythm of the heart induced by exercise, which are possible. The best initial approach to accomplish that would be to arrange for a Holter monitor (little pager sized device that is connected to your body) so that if symptoms arise with physical activity, the machine records the electrical activity of your heart, and you can actually record in a diary any symptoms that you have. Then, information will be interpreted by a cardiologist. In many cases, there is no heart abnormality, just the normal rhythm, called sinus rhythm, going faster (as expected) with exercise, and some people (particularly thin females) are more aware of it

Hope this helps,
