it could be Super Ventricular Tachycardia SVT or similar I had something like that had 3 procedures on heart to finally correct it all a heart echo and a stress test may be needed as it would not show up otherwise in the hospital it would do this at home when I quickly bent to get something that fell out of dryer or car keys hit the floor it was scary and getting it diagnosed was not easy I had to have my heart stopped and restarted too many times to need a good Electro physiologist Cardiologist; they deal with irregular heartbeats etc. Good Luck
