Have you had your thyroid checked? sometimes if your thyroid isn't working properly it can cause rapid heart rate. Trying to sleep while your heart beats fast is not easy and very uncomfortable.

Do you drink a lot of caffine? That will increase your heart rate quite a bit.

Is it double your normal heartbeat? If so then you have a rogue signal between your normal signal. This has been my problem for many years.
You can have it removed with a laser. Small operation.

Have you seen a doctor about this, or a cardiologist? You can have a 24 hour heart monitor test, that will record your heart rate changes.

Yes I have seen a Cardioligist and he cannot find a problem.

Anxiety perhaps?

I sleep with my head elevated, due to blood pressure and sleep apnea. You might try adding a few pillows. a warm relaxing shower before bed time. Deep breathing might help, and positive thoughts...I wish you well.

Re: my heart beats so fast when i am trying to sleep

Then you might want to start checking things that could cause your heart to beat faster.
Do you drink a lot of caffinated drinks? If so cut back on those.
See a dr and have your thyroid checked and have thyroid antibodies checked as well. If your thyroid isn't functioning properly it can cause rapid heart rate.

Are you stressed or have anxiety?

All these and more can cause a rapid heart rate.
