It's called Tachycardia, a racing heartbeat. It's not considered harmful unless it's for more than a short period of time. It can cause redness and sweating. I had it when I was younger, the bouts lessen as you grow older. I found that if I took a deep breath and pressed back against my heart, that would often cause it to resume normal beats.
