I have anxiety. My question is when I feel fine, why does my heart beat fast? It makes me panic and it beats even faster.

In brief: Anxiety

The heart may beat faster for many reasons.
The problem may be that you have come to associate rapid heart rate with panic. As you become more anxious it may be fueling the panic reaction.
