May be serious: There are many things that could be going on that cause the sense that your heart is beating fast at times.

Go to doctor: What you describe sounds like possible supraventricular tachycardia (svt), though there are many other causes of tachycardia (fast heart rate). It should be evaluated by your doctor. Some tachycardias require treatment, others don't. Your doctor may have you wear a holter monitor for 24 hrs, which is a small portable ECG device that records your heart activity so that they can see these episodes. ...Read more

Too late: You are already worried. Fast heart rate can come from feeling anxious or nervous. It could also come from caffeine, dehydration, anemia, thyroid problems, heart problems or other things. I recommend seeing a doctor for a more thorough evaluation. ...Read more
