In brief: Needs evaluation

Although simple anxiety and panic attacks can cause the symptoms you describe, it is incumbent on your doctors to make sure that you are not having a primary cardiac arrhythmia that is causing the symptoms you describe.
A holter (24 hour) or event monitor (3-4 week) may be useful, as well as an echocardiogram and stress test to see if the symptoms are inducible.

In brief: Rapid heart beat

There are many things that can cause you to feel dizzy, but if you are also feeling your heart beating fast then you should see your doctor. He or she may have you see a heart specialist to evaluate your heart.
