    This is similar to what i am experiencing sometimes, it is anxiety. Not sure if you are giving all the symptoms but i can surely relate. Try not to think or search a lot about your symptoms because it could lead to more panic attacks of you being scared.

    I have had this with my anxiety often. So much so, that I had a Holter Heart Monitor on for 48 hours to track what was happening. I hit the alarm button each time I felt the thud. Good news to me, you and all who feel those thuds...the monitor showed NO issues with my heart when feeling those. Also, I notice it occurs more after eating or drinking high sugar or carb meals. Take care!
