  • You could be having anxiety attacks. Go and get checked out to be on the safe side.

  • Yes you should go. I had the same thing and it was panic attacks. They will check you out really well, and then if they determine it's just anxiety they can give you somethign to relax you a little bit and it should help a lot. I know the feeling you are describing and it is so scary that not knowing what it is can actually make it worse because you get more anxious. Go in, let them help you. Good luck, pm me if you need.

  • I would go to the ER ASAP. while it sounds like an anxiety attack; you still never know. If you feel your heart pounding like that, you need an EKG done.
