Exclamation i fainted and dont know what to do

hi my names emily im from the san diego area. im 18 years old and im an active runner. last month after a run i got really dizzy and fainted. i didnt think much of it, i was just really freaked out. i told my boyfriend about my fainting episode and he told me that it might be heart related. i didnt say anything to my parents about it because im afraid of stethoscopes :-\ and it was only the first time it happened. most of the time after i run i feel flutters and get pains. last week i was with my boyfriend, i hadnt been running, and we were sitting on the couch watching tv. i was sitting up leaning on the arm of the couch and my boyfriend was laying on my chest. he told me that my heartbeat sounded really weird and scary (i was sort of embarressed) i told him it was my heart murmur and told him not to worry about it because i was told it was normal, just a little loud. he said it wasnt scary because it was loud, it was scary because he heard a skipped beat and an extra beat about every 5 seconds. is this something to REALLY worry about or is it something normal that everyone has at one time or another?
