My hear is racing fast, what could be the reason?

I was sitting down watching T.V then all of a sudden my heart started beating really fast and it was really scary it hurt a teeny bit..I got up I was really scared when I was about to tell my dad to call 911 it stopped..he told me to drink water, I really don t know whats going on with my heart. Also when I was sleeping at night my heart started to sting I couldnt move or else it d hurt more, and another time in class my heart would like skip a beat and it like happens randomly and scares me I can t breathe for 1 second when it does that. Please help:(

Hi well come to HCM.
Intermittant bouts of tachy cardia could happen in SVT or sinus tachy cardia during
anxiety and fear. so when it happens you may see your doctor to record the things
with ECG. Or you may go for Holters monitor recording which will help you to get your
heart beats, irregularity of heart beat during your activity for 24 hrs. Thanks
