here are some questions you should answer..is it for the first time you have experienced this? was there any triggering factor present or anything you can recall or associate with this? if you are on any kind of medication?your weight? your blood pressure?do you smoke? how much is your caffeine(tea,coffee or sodas) intake? i assume this was your first time, so no need to worry at all as this is quite common. if this was not ur first time,recall every event and notice if any triggering factor was present like anxiety, any food stuff, medication(most commonly allergy medication), etc and try to avoid it. last possibility is a condition known as "transient tachycardia". but again this is not a diagnosis when u have a single episode. it can lead to a great anxiety in the patients with this condition and must consult a doctor for proper checkup. the best home remedy for prevention of these episodes is regular brisk walking or light weight exercises or yoga. eat healthy food,avoid oily stuff.check your blood pressure regularly..

Do I Have a Heart Problem? PLEASE HELP ME I AM WORRIED SICK!? I am 17 years old. Sometimes when I am doing exercise (example when I jump super high or spike a volleyball), I overdo it or something like that. After this overdo-ing , my heart rate sometimes suddenly increases so rapidly that I feel a bit weezy or lightheaded, then after about 30 seconds or a minute later, it suddenly drops back to my normal heart rate. Sometimes after one of these attacks , my chest feels a little weird and I seem to not be able to breathe very very deeply without having to get chest pains; when I breathe deeply, it feels like my lungs are injured and can t take the oxygen capacity. This chest pain only happens after the attack and only hurts when I breathe super deeply, it usually lasts until the next day. These attacks are not frequent by the way, they happen on average once every three or four months I think, but they re really unpredictable. Please tell me I DON T have a heart problem, I don t know if I should get it checked... do other people get this as well?
