You should get it checked by your doctor as soon as possible. It could just be something minor such as your thyroid levels being too high or too low, which is fixable with a pill, but i'm not a doctor.  I do recomend you go to your doctor and get it checked.  I know that happened to me too sometimes when my thyroid levels were off.  But i'm sure there are many things to cause that to happen.

Hi

I will try my best to answer your query.

I think it is palpitation which is an abnormality of heartbeat that causes a conscious awareness of its beating, whether it is too slow, too fast, irregular, or at its normal frequency.
Hope my answer will be helpful for you. Causes include panic disorders, hypoglycemia, hypoxia, anemia, levocetirizine antihistamines, mitral valve prolapse, pyrexia , pregnancy etc. I think in your case it might be panic disorder or anemia, pyrexia.
I advice you to have an ECG done and i advice you to meet physician it is always better get yourself examined and rule out the causes.

Take care.

Just to do some light cooking and going to the bathroom it goes up to 100-115. They did not do any imaging on my back while I was in the hospital.

For no reason my heart will just start beating really fast and its kinda of hard to get my breath and sometimes it makes everything turn all black for a second but the my sight comes right back the only way I have found to get my heart to slow down is to sit down and put my head between my legs and take deep breaths then it feels like my heart beats one real hard beat then it goes back to normal but if i get up to quick it will start right back up it dont do it all the time mostly if iam doing something thats physical taking a shower and now it has just happen when I was just standingIts starting to scar me I dont have insurance so no docotor and I would go to the hosptial but its hard to get there or be there while its doing itCould any one give me a idea of what this could be For no reason my heart will just start beating really fast and its kinda of hard to get my breath and sometimes it makes everything turn all black for a second but the my sight comes right back the only way I have found to get my heart to slow down is to sit down and put my head between my legs and take deep breaths then it feels like my heart beats one real hard beat then it goes back to normal but if i get up to quick it will start right back up it dont do it all the time mostly if iam doing something thats physical taking a shower and now it has just happen when I was just standingIts starting to scar me I dont have insurance so no docotor and I would go to the hosptial but its hard to get there or be there while its doing it.

Woke up one morning a week ago with serious low back pain and racing heart. My resting pulse is normally in the mid-50s, but now it is 120-130 bpm (not pounding). My breathing is normal when resting but I get winded easily from mild exertion. Everything was normal prior to waking up that morning, but since then the back pain and fast heart rate have continued without change. Today I am now noticing a mild fever.

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
