In brief: Need evaluation

You have to see a doctor. You will need an ekg, heart monitor and an echocardiogram.
Also check if your blood pressure is high. Reduce caffeine and alcohol intake. Avoid certain cold remedies with decongestants.

In brief: Need EKG

You are having some type of heart arrhythmia.
Depending on your age and risk factors, it may be a minor problem but there are more serious possibilities. The fact that you get short of breath is a little worrisome. An EKG should give an answer as to why your heart is flipflopping.
