Its sounding like an arrhythmia which can be common in young people especially if they have alot of stimulants in their diets like caffeine, nicotine, red bull, etc and of course street drugs. Got to mention that too you know... I would cut all of the stimulants out of the diet (this includes smoking) and if it continues tell your doctor so they can do an ekg on you to check your heart rhythm. Hope this helps. May also be anxiety.
