Maybe normal: Sounds like you are experiencing what is called palpitations, an anti anxiety drug may be helpful. EKG and possibly what is called a Holter monitor would be helpful to exclude various abnormal heart rhythms as the cause, in which case a beta blocker drug might be prescribed. Probably normal at your age.
