Funny heart beat?!?

I am sat here now and it feels like my heart is beating faster than normal, which is making me feel a little dizzy. About every five minutes I get a funny sensation in my chest, like a flutter but feels like my heart is speeding up for a couple of beats. It has been happening for a couple of days now but has gradually got worse. I'm only 23 so not sure what to think. I can't get in the doctors until next week so wanted to see if anyone knows anything on here?????

Thanks x

Re: Funny heart beat?!?

you should get it checked out a soon as possible. i'am 28 and have episodes of atrial afib. it came out of nowhere. if you feel dizzy when you stand and your heart pounds, also can feel like it's flutting around you should go the hospital.

hi there

you need to get yourself to the emergency department of your nearest hospital. they'll be able to take care of you.

Wow..that sounds like what I have every once in a while. It's not that often though. But sometimes when I stand, I almost black out. Like I can't even see and I feel weird. Like I'm going to pass out or something.
