I doubt it very much. 85 % of people who have heart attacks dont even have chest pain. You are most likely having a panic attack. When you rhavi ga heart attack your hert would be beating very slow. Its called arythmia and i suffer wiht it also. When i start stressing my heart goes crazy.

sometimes my heart will beat really fast out of nowhere, like there is a spasm and its really uncomfortable and it makes it hard to breath and everything is almost completely black to where i can only kinda see outlines. usually if i sit down and try to breath it will just stop, like it wasnt even there, but last time it happened i was in school and it didnt stop for almost 10 minutes and it was on and off for about 45min. does anyone know what,why, or how i can stop this?

I am 19 years of age and two days ago I woke up and felt my heart beating fast like I had a bad dream. But then it completely stopped then beat 1 hard time almost like it was having trouble pumping, it is happening very commonly now, almost every other minute, could this be life threatening

My 14 year old daughter has mentioned that her heart seems to be beating hard and fast every once in awhile. She is not short of breath but I am concerned. Will make an appt with her doctor tomorrow but wonder why this may be happening? It just did it and her pulse seemed to be about 120 beats for a couple of minuets. Any ideas?
