"Paroxysmal atrial tachycardia  

Definition

A period of very rapid and regular heart beats that begins and ends abruptly. The heart rate is usually between 160 and 200 beats per minute. This condition is also known as paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia."

http://www.healthatoz.com/healthatoz/Atoz/common/standard/transform.jsp?requestURI=/healthatoz/Atoz/ency/paroxysmal_atrial_tachycardia.jsp

Symptoms vary depending on what's causing the PAT (e.g., accessory pathway, av nodal reentry, etc.) but will sometimes include: Palpitations, rapid thumping or a pounding sensation in your chest; Fatigue or light-headedness; Fainting; Shortness of breath; Chest pain and, of course, racing heart.
