Heart beating fast and feeling sick. Is this a disease ?

Iv been Fighting the flu for about 3-5 days now.Im starting to get better. However In the mornings and sometimes during the day if i over do myself my heart rate will rise a little bit and it causes me to feel like im going to throw up.. is this due to something from me being sick? I also take Thyroid meds but just started taking them again a day ago since i wasn t able to when i was sick. Im going to be 27 in 9 days and i weight 259 pounds. Was 270 but lost 11 due to being sick.

Hey:) im 15 years old, female - im not overweight, i m about 5ft 4 - a little unfit but i ve never been the sporty type and this is very recent - my heart s been going all crazy in the past week or so - i first noticed it last friday. It felt kinda like adrenaline - i was just sitting there - nothing had happened to make me scared and i hadn t been running or anything - it doesn t hurt when my heart does this - it may not even b my heart ,sometimes it feels a little more to the left, like a lung or something - it ll just start going all fast and beating really hard for a couple of seconds. It s really scary. I get lightheaded a lot and im tired all the time (i ve been like that for a couple of years) and sometimes get sick when i m on my period - it s really freaking me out - hope you can help!! Thanks:)

Respected Sir I am a male 26. From last 4-5 years I am feeling uncomfortable in my chest. While even at rest I can feel my heart beating sometimes too fast. Sometimes it feels like heart skipped a beat or sometimes there are 2-3 extra beats. once or twice in a month I feel a very minor movement in my heart that someone just poked my heart. A kind of wave from top to bottom of heart. I have visited doctors 3-4 times during this period. ECG, Holter and doppler test reports are normal. However even at clinics, doctors noticed by heart beats increased for around 20 seconds then to normal. Again it increases for 10-15 seconds then its normal. Moreover at home while resting, specially around 10-11PM or in morning I feel my heart is beating too loud. When I measure my heart rate by looking at clock, it turns out to be 60-75/min. I am very confused. Every Doctor I visited gave me some multivitamins and said there is nothing to worry. But from last couple of months I can feel minor vibrations in my first and second fingers of left hand. While right hand is okay. Please let me know what should I do. Is there any test that can make me sure if I am having a disease or not? However I am an over-thinker. Something always keeps going in my mind (that I never do or never did.) I noticed there is not even a minute when I am not thinking anything series. Not sure if its only me or its normal. Please guide.
