Why without any reason my heart just start beating really fast ?

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 scar me I dont have insurance so no docotor and I would go to the hosptial but its hard to get there or be there while its doing itCould any one give me a idea of what this could be..It beats so fast you can hear my breathing like shaking and you can see it thre my shirt. Please if any one has a idea or anything please let me know its really scaring me..Thank you so much, O yeah Iam 30 Female.And I get really light headed cause of this 2.

Dear Concerned,

This is all because of Anxiety as mentioned above by Dr Rakhi. Do consult Homoeopathic Pychology Medicine Specialist for the same. It will be helpful.

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
You are most likely having an anxiety disorder. The fast beating of heart as such is not A DISEASE AS LONG AS THE RHYTHM is normal and regular. For your satisfaction you can get an ECG done. Fast respiration is always associated with faster heart rate.

Hi. I am 20 years old, and I think something is wrong with my heart. Sometimes without a reason it starts beating very fast. And everytime when I see something that upsets me, it starts beating very fast too. I have no idea why. And I m starting to get scared. What s wrong with it? I red on the internet that this may be a sign of depression. Is that the reason?

My heart used to beat really fast for no reason when i used to sleep, this was a either a year ago i think. It used to be like only 4 times. It went away but than it started to beat really fast for no reason. I know it s not anxiety because i would sit on my computer and it would beat fast for a few seconds than go away, it happens pretty often but i didn t think it was a big deal. I want to know what s the cause for it, im only 15 years old, and i don t think i have high blood pressure because my doctor never mentioned i did and yeah. Is this a temporary thing ? I really want to know, is it a big deal? Please help ! I ve heard people get it having attacks for about 5 minutes, am i going to be like that? HELP please!

My boyfriend is only 18 years old and in shape but im worried about his heart . Sometimes his heart will start to beat so hard and fast that i can feel it in his chest without even trying. It has happend 3 times since augest. While he sleeps his heart pumps extra hard and the artery in his neck bulges out and he doesnt even notice it. He thinks he is to young to go see a doctor about his heart.

Hello Dr, 41 year old, non-smoker, 1-5 units of alcohol a week, active, no other health issues. Family history of heart problems (Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ), have been checked and do not have it, although have a slight thickening of arterial knuckle which gets monitored. I m getting what feels like pulses or faint flutters from my oesophagus region to the top of my sternum region, these symptoms are infrequent during the day to sometimes non-existent, but at night the symptoms only occur when laid on my back or on my left side (they disappear when I m lying on my right side?) and feel more constant with a heart beat ie pulses at a constant rate. Occasionally have slight breathlessness since this has started 1 week ago. Now I ve had a slight upset stomach (although not constipated I ve not been regular) the last week and the symptoms do seem to be more present when I have heavy feeling in my stomach and then subside once I pass wind. Is the pulses/flutter linked to this and could be a blockage and wind not escaping? Or something else?

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
