possible atrial

im 23 almost 24 and for the past couple of years now ive been having really strange symptoms with my heart for along time I started to get palpitations like as if my heart would all of a sudden twitch and I could feel it this would happen to be all the time and for a while this was happening very frequently at least 5 - 7 times a day but for the last couple of months it has stopped or at least nowhere near strong enough to where I can feel it but I still get this pounding heart feeling in my chest with very little activity I could just sit up out of bed then next thing I know I can feel my heart not racing but just pounding really hard , I also have noticed that when I laugh really hard I get super dizzy for no reason . I can be laughing my butt off then next thing I no I suddenly stop because all of a sudden I get extremely lightheaded I don't know of any other symptoms though that ive been getting but that pretty much sums it all up i do get fatigued feeling a lot like be tired after a full night sleep but i do still have enough energy to where i go walking a lot and for a while there i was even jogging a lot . my heart rate seems good does anyone know what this might be please help a little freaked

It sounds like you have run of the mill ectopic activity, the odd twitchy feeling.  This is fairly benign in a healthy heart. This said, I am not a doctor so I think it best, if you haven't been to one to be evaluated, it is best you go and have your heart looked at.  You likely don't have anything to worry about but a doctor really needs to sign off on that.  So just go and tell them what you are feeling and they will take a look at your heart.  Take care and try not to stress.  The stress will actually make things worse.
