My heart is beating very strongly.Is it a symptom of panic?

My heart feels weird today. it feels like its beating really strong and tightness in chest maybe muscles? this started yesterday. it s nothing big or a huge problem. but it feels like my heart is beating strong like in strong bangs i can feel it in my chest. Not fast but it feels like its really pumping away hard when i m just sitting on my chair. and theirs like some sort of tightness where my heart is i think it might be just my muscles but its bothering me. it s been happening since yesterday. i m not sure if this is normal or not but it s freaking me out. i m only 15 i have atrial ferbilation(sometimes) what usually happends when i get atrial ferbilation isnt happening now it feels different my heart isnt going fast it just is beating strongly and my chest area around myheart is hurting a bit and feels like theres pressure around there. what s happening is this seriose? or should i just ignore it. or is that like a symptom of panic? because the past few days i ve had panic and anxiety a lot. ? atrial fibrillation****** no this heart feeling like tightness is the first time i ve ever felt it.

It could be anxiety. Best to be safe than too sorry. Call your doctor either way!!! call your doctor. they have panic meds, and you need to have an EKG for your heart to make sure!! If you feel bad, call 911 why risk dying? call your doctor, call a friend, call your mom, call a nurse, tell someone beside yahoo!! call 911 if you have this chest pain!
