Heart acts funny when laying down, breathing normal, little overweight. Possible cause?

I feel like my heart starts to act funny when I lay down, I also feel like I can breathe as well too. I m 27, I eat well, not as well as I should however, I m a little overweight , but exercise and do cardio relatively regularly. My vitals seem to be pretty normal, last time they were checked my BP was 116/68 and pulse was 70ish. Also none of this happens when I m moving about or standing, it really doesn t happen when I m laying on my sides either, just my back. Thoughts?

Thanks for writing to us.
The funny feeling that you notice on lying down is likely to be related to anxiety. However, it is best to consult a cardiologist and get all your routine screening tests done to find out any cardiac rhythm abnormalities.
