Hi:The heart beat you describe is called palpitation and dizzeness could be presyncope. These things can occur when your heart beats faster or if it beats irregular. It could be due to some cardiac problem, increase thyroid hormone or even in anxiety. Just get your ECG and cardiac evaluation done. These are easliy curable.
