What is the cause for my heart to beat fast and make my breath hard ?

For no reason my heart will just start beating really fast and its kinda of hard to get my breath and sometimes it makes everything turn all black for a second but the my sight comes right back the only way I have found to get my heart to slow down is to sit down and put my head between my legs and take deep breaths then it feels like my heart beats one real hard beat then it goes back to normal but if i get up to quick it will start right back up it dont do it all the time mostly if iam doing something thats physical taking a shower and now it has just happen when I was just standingIts starting to scare I would go to the hosptial but its hard to get there or be there while its doing it Could any one give me a idea of what this could be

hi,Amanda,
It seems that you have got anxiety neurosis.
Do deep breathing exercise and some physical exercise,
Some time cardiac entity can cause this problem so take ECG and become tension free.
