In brief: See below

There are multiple reasons why a 28 year old may have a fast heartbeat.
Only some initiate from the heart and coronary disease leading to a heart attack would not start at the top of my list. Go see your doctor and don't be scared.

In brief: Prevention

However, women tend to be under diagnosed for ischemic heart disease.
More women die from it than men. Taking precaution to prevent premature death is very important.

In brief: Tachcardia

Yes, it is possible.
You need to have a thorough investigation on the causes of rapid heart rates. Coronary artery disease is the number one possibility and it is deadly. More women due from it than men due to delays in diagnosis. So find a doctor who uses "multifunction cardiogram" to test you. It may just save your life!
