Why does my heart feel like is going to explode or burst, rapid heart rate and my chest becomes tight but there is no pain, it's like I'm falling or something like that...this occurs every now and then but I don't know what it is? It goes away after a mintue or so...and it happens for no reason whatsoever...it just happens, it doesn't occur after the same activities it just starts randomly whenever...day or night, stress or no stress.

  • lol, sort of, if your heart beat is higher than what its suppose to be at rest rate, then you need more exercise

  • You could be experiencing an anxiety attack. I get these several times a day.With me, it comes on very spontaneously. I feel like my heart is 'frozen' and it beats very rapidly, i get butterflies in my tummy, and i get palpitations. Sometimes it feels like my heart is thumping against my chest, other times it feels like it is very faint and fast, fluttering almost. I feel quite shakey and weak in my arms/legs sometimes whenever i get an anxiety attack. If this is causing you trouble, you may benefit from a docs appointment :) He/She will be able to help you more :)

  • To me I think its anxiety also. Are you taking any pills for depression or are you having depression problem?Whenever you have this problem again do start thinking of good memories,do watch your favorite movie or call your best friend.Avoid oily and spicy food and better consult your doctor.
