Were you nervous? Had you been exercising beforehand? Had you had any caffeine? If the answer to these is no, then you should probably go and see a doctor. I had the same problem when I was 19 and it ended up being vitamin B12 deficiency! edit: Yes, a heart murmur can play a role. I had one too, but it has since gone away.
