    Sounds like a panic attack to me. Sinus tachycardia is the medical term i have it constantly it means a fast heart rate with no medical problems. Its linked to anxiety. Are you feel anxious at all ??

    Anxiety attack. (panic attack) Take a few good cleansing breaths. Focus on something other than that feeling. Or find a focal point in the room and concentrate on that.  SHould help calm you down.

    Take slow deep breaths...and drink some WATER...seriously being dehydrated can race your heart...causing anxiety symptoms.

    Drink lots of water today.

    Hi. I am sure it's not a heart condition it's worry. You yourself said you were scared. It I a panic attack. It will pass. I've been there. Hope it goes quickly for you. Let me know how you get on.

    This happens to me too. It is the beginning of a panic attack.

    Take 5 mg Diazepam and 10mgPropranolol.

    I have also been put on a mild antidepressant tablet."Sertraline 50mg"

    If you are an anxious person...this happens often.Or the food you have eaten which makes you get a bloated tummy. There is nothing to do with the heart. Check your blood pressure from time to time. I feel much better so far....but get an ECG done  to make sure....
