I'm on blood thinner but I'm feeling like a irregular heart beat. Can I have a heart attack being on xarelto (blood thinners?

Yes, though may ↓the: Severity. Xarelto does NOT thin the blood; blood viscosity does not change. Instead Xarelto inhibits clot formation, thus any bleeding problems are ↑ed. Xarelto is Rxed because of evidence/concern of forming clots inside blood vessels, not just in blood vessel breaks.
