Hi, Im 42 years old over weight with high bloodpressure.  Recently I have experienced a very strong heartbeat and way faster then usual. I have no medical insurance so I just keep guessing on what the problem could be. I've been told that its a panic attack, but I've only had it twice in the last two years, and now in the last week, I keep feeling it coming on, but it doesn't happen all the way. I try not to stress, and I take a beta blocker which last time my heart pounded hard I took it and it made my heart beat normal again after 15 minutes. Does this sound like anxiety, or is it possible I have something wrong with my heart? I even stopped drinking alcohol, because the day after is when it happened last time. It never happens when I drink, only after. Help if you can, Thanx
