My heart is beating really hard and i can feel it in my neck. What could be the reason?

First off i m only 19 so I feel kind of dumb asking this, but I can t tell if I might have something wrong with my heart or not. It just feels really tight not that painful just awkward especially exercising. I am in very good shape and workout almost every day but something doesn t feel right, like its beating real hard and i can feel it in my neck. It feels kind of hard to breathe at times but when i googled it they all said anxiety? I doubt that.

The stabbing pain was extreme but only lasted for a few minutes. This morning, my neck and left side of chesk (over my heart) feels uncomfortable. I ve also been diagnosed recently with Lyme Disease ...could this be part of it? or what is causeing this?

I have been having heart palpitations at night for the past 2 weeks that wake me up out of my sleep. For the past 2 weeks I have been living on no sleep because of this and it is miserable. I have had anxiety issues in the past, but I really feel as though this is different. When sleeping I kind of feel like I "forget to breathe" and get a heart palpitation just when I'm about to doze off. I had heart palpitations 2 years ago and went to a cardiologist in which the doctor did many tests and found nothing abnormal. I have competed in athletics my entire life and am a seemingly healthy 23 year old female.

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
