Racing heart/panic: With the limited information available, a lot could be done to figure out the root cause of your problem. Thyroid comes to mind. May want to get checked out for prolapse of the mitral valve as well. A thorough history and physical and, in the correct context, some basic blood work and imaging studies should be revealing. Good luck!
