In brief: Palpitations

Sounds like you're experiencing palpitations, or an abnormal awareness of one's own heartbeat.
It is a common complaint seen in all age groups or demographics. Many are due to non-life-threatening, treatable cardiac conditions. Settings of emotional or physical stress, caffeine or stimulants, and alcohol can contribute. However, they can also be deadly. Please see your doctor for a full exam, EKG.
