Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The fast beating of your heart when you wake up is not related to getting but because of the dreams you are having during the sleep. The frightening dreams we see during our sleep produces all the changes on our heart rate and cardiac output as will be caused by the emotional changes.
