I wouldn't panic with reading some of these answers. Probably just anxiety and palpitations. Your family looks like they're having age related heart problems or problems with clogged arteries from eating too many fats over the years. That wouldn't have much to do with what you are experiencing now. But you should get check just so you can stop worrying because worry will make the palpitations worse. I just wanted to add this because I read it in the news recently: it's about lifting weights and blood pressure. Breathe. Your blood pressure can increase to dangerous levels if you hold your breath during weight training. Exhaling during the lift and just plain breathing freely during your weight training exercise can prevent this.
