Heart Concern

I would like to know if I have reason to be concerned and need to visit my doctor or if I'm being paranoid.

For the last couple of days I'll be sitting watching TV or reading a book and it feels like my heart wants to jump out my chest. It's like someone is knocking on the inside. Is this a heart murmur or palpitations or something else.

Do I need to have it checked.

Dear Angie
You may be getting irregular heart beats - yes let your GP just check with an ECG.
