These are very common symptoms of hyperadrenergic tone associated with mitral valve prolapse syndrome.  are you on a beta blocker?  sometimes that helps.  Unfortunately, sometimes nothing helps these feelings.  At this age, it is unlikely that you have atrial fibrillation or other arrhythmias, however, if this persists, you may want to have a Holter monitor or an event recorder to furhter evaluate that.  Don't worry about your heart stopping.  That does not happen to patients like yourself.
