Depending on your age, it could be an anxiety attack. You could also be severely dehydrated. Make sure you drink plenty of water, the .less water in your body, the harder your heart has to work to keep your blood pressure stable and keep you hydrated and etc..but, whenever there is anything that involves you heart, it's best to see a doctor just to make sure everything is okay. You sound like a young person so I doubt that it could be symptoms of a heart attack. Also look into your family history. Ask your parents if they ever have/had any heart problems. Good luck.

My heart will start to beat really fast and it will feel like when i breath it is inhaled through a filter. at times i fell hot, but not really if that makes sense at all. sometimes i get pain that isn t a constant. sometimes its just in the chest. sometimes its through the neck also. sometimes the pain is feeling like sinus pain as well. and sometimes my whole body. i can move freely and rarely get to the point where i feel like shouldn t move. In a sense to me it sounds like a heart attack, but i have had this problem randomly (maybe 3-5 times a year) its a god aweful feeling. i can remember first experiencing this when i was about 8 or 10 (earliest memory of it) just walking outside. other times its after a bike ride, running, or just doing daily things. its not always an active attack, it does happen when im not doing anything at all too.

Sometimes when I m trying to sleep my heart starts beating really fast and it only happens once in a while but it s been going on for like about a year and then last night my heart started beating pretty hard/fast in like less than 2 seconds but I felt really uncomfortable afterwards. There was a situation around September ish of 2014 where I was at school and throughout the day my heart would randomly start beating fast/hard. And each time this happened, I had to breathe in really hard for my heart beat to slow down. I don t know if I should go to the doctor.. Maybe it s anxiety or the junk food I eat(I m a teenager, 17) but I highly doubt it since I only weigh around 135 lbs.

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 was in a car accident like 2 months ago, broke a few bones, had surgery(hip and femur)a month later i began feeling left chest pains, left arm pains...typical heart attack symptoms in other words. last night was the 5th time i went to the e.r. thanks to this pains and again they found nothing wrong with me or my heart so i guess the ekg and mri were all good. the pain is still there on a daily basis my parents refuse to take me to the hospital they think i m insane. my questions are can my heart be bruised or enlarged?or that would have been ruled out with the ekg and mri?they said its not my lungs but the pain is on left back also, could it be only muscle pain?i don t have insurance and all this medical assistance is pretty expensive. if anyone could please get me on the right direction i would greatly appreciate it, this pain is so stressing it feels like a tickle on my lung or heart and i m scared if overlooked it will kill me. by the way i m a 19 yr old grl and nobody in my family has any kind of medical problems....
