Forceful heartbeat

Over the last few months I have noticed that when I lie on me left side when going to bed that I have a strong heartbeat to the point when it becomes uncomfortable so I have to roll over. Theres no pain so I'm not sure what it could be. I've been to the Doctor and he tells me that I could have a weak outer rib muscle on that side which is why it would seem more pronounced. He says my blood pressure is good and show no signs of any heart disease from the initial tests that he has done.
He's ordered a chest Xray and full bloods to be taken, but after browsing the net some of the diagnoses I see make me a little anxious.
Should I be worried?

You need to be checked and a 24 hour monitor to record your heart  beat during one of these episodes will help determine exactly what you are experiencing.
