I have also had these heart palpitations, sent me rushing to the doctors once. In my case it was the beginning of stomach ulcers! Go figure, is there any chance that you may the same thing? I still have days when my heart races or I feel it skip a beat. I know the feeling, very scary. Maybe ulcers could be your problem too! Crohn's has caued so many things that seem unrelated, but apparently aren't.
A fellow homeschooler! :) When my heart seems to be going wacky it is always indigestion! I will take an antiacid, strech out flat on the couch with a heating pad and wait. To me the indigestion feels like a big bubble pushing on my heart and when that bubble starts to move my heart goes back to normal. Not a very medical response, but this does work for me.
Hope your feeling better soon!
