Hello my name is Hasinah. I'm 17 years old. for the past 2/3 years I've realised my heart keeps racing. Sometimes it even hurts to the point I feel positive I'm going to die. I wake up in the night with my heart racing even times were in totally chilled it races and I don't know why :( It really bothers me because I just want to be normal!? My doctors have no idea what it is, so I've stopped going to them. I've had a bad past and I think it may have to do with that, I used to be really unhappy for certain reasons I'd rather not say. I just want to get to the bottom on it, because it really does bother me alot. I used to be 15.4 stones and lost 4 and a half so it surely can't be because of my weight now? Please help! Hasinah
