I have had the same problem for 7 yrs now. It started with a hyperthyroid, but it has been normal for 6 yrs. I use to take beta blockers, but they made me dizzy or my muscles weak. Beta blockers is all I know to slow it down. Sometimes holding your breathe and bearing down like you are having a BM will slow it down temp. Or chewing on ice. That is all I know.

Hi,
Thanks for query,
This seems to be due to having panic attack and anxiety neurosis,
But before we stamped out panic attack,rule out any cardiac cause.
Ok and bye.

I'm suffering from possible anxiety attacks where my heart beat increases and my breathing stops while I'm asleep. This has been an ongoing problem for the last year and a half and it's beginning to worry me during the day. If i am in a lecture hall at Univeristy and it goes quiet, i fear that I am going to have some sort of heart attack as the pain in my chest hurts.
