Get her a trip to the doctor to find out what she can and can't do. Take it from there.

My boyfriend is only 18 years old and in shape but im worried about his heart . Sometimes his heart will start to beat so hard and fast that i can feel it in his chest without even trying. It has happend 3 times since augest. While he sleeps his heart pumps extra hard and the artery in his neck bulges out and he doesnt even notice it. He thinks he is to young to go see a doctor about his heart.

I am 16 years old, female, and sometimes my heart feels like it s beating uncontrollably fast. my dad has had high blood pressure in the past, yet my mother has had an overacting thyroid disease. I myself have had panic attacks and have had to see the doctor, because I thought I was having a heart attack. when my heart feels jumpy or like it s beating fast I m not nervous, it might be me sitting down trying to fall asleep and it will happen. please try to help me!
