Can't sleep due to feeling around heart
For the last three days I have been unable to sleep due to a sensation in my heart, it feels like it's pushing outwards and I am only really aware of it when I try to sleep. I'm 15 and supposedly very heathy diet wise however I do lack extended exercise. This only happend after I was staying up at erratic hours. I may have not eaten as much.

Palpitations are feelings or sensations that your heart is pounding or racing. They can be felt in your chest, throat, or neck. You may Have an unpleasant awareness of your own heartbeat or may Feel like your heart skipped or stopped beats The heart's rhythm may be normal or abnormal when you have palpitations. Normally the heart beats 60 to 100 times per minute. The rate may drop below 60 beats per minute in people who exercise routinely or take medicines that slow the heart. If your heart rate is fast (over 100 beats per minute), this is called tachycardia. A heart rate slower than 60 is called bradycardia. An occasional extra heartbeat is known as extrasystole. Palpitations are not serious most of the time. Sensations representing an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia) may be more serious. If you would to evaluate it.. Get and ECG and echocardiography done.
