Yes, you should go see your doctor, better yet, the ER. If you have noticed it getting worse and you are almost losing conciousness, it is emergent that you see a doctor. It is unusual for someone as young as you to have these problems but not unheard of. If you are taking illegal stimulants, then you really need to stop. I don't mean to offend you if you are not, but this is the most common cause of heart attacks in young people. Also, be sure to tell the doctor any family history that may be relevant to this. This just sounds like bad news. You need care asap.
