    basically when I'm in bed about to go to sleep my heart starts beating insanely fast and loudly. It happens really sporadically - has happened for about a year. I'll have it for a few days in a row and then not for a week.


    After minimal exercise like walking up the stairs my heart has also started beating insanely fast this week and I don't know why
    help?

    You absolutely do not have a medical problem there, and you absolutely should not go and see a doctor.
    Obvious answers I know.

    If you want to put your mind at rest going and see your GP, he will refer you to a cardiac department if he sees fit

    Put your thumb in your mouth as if you are suking it, then blow for about a second or so.

    This will slow the heart rate because it stimulates a nerve that controls heart rate. I saw it on Braniac and can confirm that it works.

    OP I would be worried about this because young people who die of sudden cardiac death tend to have similar warning episodes where the heart beats over 90 when resting.

    I mean it could be anxiety but please get checked out! An ecg only takes 2 minutes it is such a simple test.

    This happened to me around 2 weeks ago.

    I had a dream my science gcse was around 2 hours away , and that I hadn't revised a single thing. I was really stressing out =/

    This this this.

    Chances are, its nothing and you're just a bit unfit or anxious. But speaking from experience requesting an ECG can put your mind at rest.
