fast heartbeat and shortness of breath

My roommate has been having a problem with a fast heartbeat and shortness of breath for a month now. It happens even when she does the smallest things, like walk to her class.

Today we were exercising for about an hour, and she didn't have any problems .... but when she walked to her meeting (a 10 minute walk), she got there and couldn't catch her breath and her heart was beating very fast. It has been over two hours and she still feels that way. The fast heartbeat is even making her nauseous.

We have no idea what to do. Please help.
