Hi. I'm 21 years old. The past few years, I have been having something strange happen, about once a week. Without warning, it will feel as if my heart is beating very hard, and it feels as if it jumps up into my throat. I will have difficulty breathing, and begin coughing and feeling dizzy. It only lasts about 30 seconds, but when it happened today, I was driving and almost swerved off of the road. I can't seem to find any connections. It has never happened when I am working out, to the best of my knowledge. It often happens if I am just walking or sitting, but never during heavy excercise. I have mentioned it to the college doctor before, and they shrug it off as nothing. However, I almost passed out today, and I can't help but think something is wrong. But, it only happens about once a week...What could it be, and what should I do? I am starting to get worried..
