Heightened Awareness: You have answered the question with your statement. "I'm scared". Since you've noticed them before you now are focused on their occurrence. In addition you are producing adrenaline from your fear which increases the electrical irritability of your heart and produces more extra beats. Try a different position where you may not feel them as much.
