Why am I experiencing irregular heartbeats and chest pains ?

I'm 20 years old. Why am I experiencing irregular heartbeats and chest pains? Im 20 years old and im 5 11 150 pounds. My heart problems occur most frequently when I eat/drink unhealthy things. such as pizza, energy drinks and pop. since then I have started eating healthier and im not experiencing the pains and the irregular heartbeats as often. however, I still get them randomly throughout the day, and now I have to be very careful with what I eat... any ideas of what the problem could be....

Getting conscious of your won heart beat is due to palpitations. Every now and then everybody feels the same in some or the other unfamiliar situations.

But if it is happening very frequently, even at rest. Then there is a cause to worry.
