heart trouble, please help

I am 19 years old, and I have had atrial fibulation in the past(however, I am on no meds for it). Lately, I have been having weird symptoms, and I am hoping I can get some help from here.

Symptoms:
-Racing heart which seems to correlate with weight lifting.(It's happened about 3 to 4 times to me in a span of a year)
-Dizziness following a very heavy lift(such as deadlifting)
-Occasional(maybe once a week) brief slip into A Fib.
-Odd heart feeling if I lay down on my back.(Not so much as a pain or a palpitation, but just an urge to flip to my side to make the awkwardness in the chest go away..if that makes any sense.)
-Slight chest pain that will stay for about a week and won't come back for about a month
-* For the past couple of weeks, I have awoken and sat up very quickly because it feels as though I am having a heart palpitation.
-I also get sort of a "tightness" feeling when I breath after any sort of exercise. It's not difficult to breath at all, but I can tell that my quality of breathing is different. This is accompanied by just a slight amount of congestion, yet has been occurring for quite some time now.

I know I should see a doctor, but my lack of insurance does not permit it. Does anyone on here know what I could have?

-Also, I do not indulge in any form of smoking, and I only drink wine once every two weeks or so. I might also slip a couple of dark beers in once a month

Re: heart trouble, please help

Also, does anyone think it would be a good idea to get on some form of anxiety medication as my heart issues are all I think about in every ounce of spare time that I have. I am just afraid that my stress and over-paranoia are going to worsen my symptoms or even bring more health issues my way. I have speculated that my heart problems are stress oriented anyways.

-Thank you very much,

Pat
