What causes sudden, rapid heart beat, even while i am sleeping in bed,please give your suggestion to get rid of it

When I am sitting or even sleeping in the bed. My heart beat starts to go up. I have to struggle to keep my breathing up to so I don t faint. I have not fainted but I feel light headed. Just want to know what causes this. No family history of heart problems, some diabetics. Take care

Hi there, I had this problem once. You feel like your heart beat is beating harder and like your chest is getting tight? Mine ended up being anxiety/panic attack. see doctor and tell him about it. he may prescribe some anti-anxiety medication.
