Suggest treatment for heart palpitations

i was just sitting here on the computer and it felt like my heart stopped beating for about 5-7 seconds and all the blood rushed to my head really fast and i felt as though I was about to drop dead and second. It has stopped now but my heart beat feels weird should i be worried?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

This doesn't look serious. However, we generally advise to see doctor for such palpitations. Your doctor would be able to explain you in a detail manner and advice to get an ECG and/or echo, depending on your history and examination. Therefore, consult the doctor and plan ahead. Do not ignore it completely, though it doesn't look like a serious concern.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I used to smoke weed everyday for about 2 years straight with no problems then i tried that k-2 shit and i started freaking out and my heart was racing so fast i couldent control it. after about 8 months of not doing anything (because i scared myself so bad i tried weed again and felt exactly how i did when i smoke that k-2 stuff my heart was racing and i felt like i was going to have a heart attack. My arms were going numb and then i went for a walk which calmed me a bit (after pacing up and down my friends driveway taking in deep breaths with my heart on my chest for a half hour), but the thought juts kept creeping in my mind about my heart and i couldent get rid of it. This now happens even when im sober ( I really think that i have just scared myself so bad and that its all psychological) but any advice would be great!
