My daughter age 8 gets this same thing. I have mentioned it to her pediatrician twice and she assures me it is nothing to worry about as long as it isn't racing so fast you can no longer count the individual beats. I trust her, but admit it is sort of scary. If you find out something different add it to your comments, (I promised my husband not to accept emails on this thing)I would really appreciate it.

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?

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.
