i have had more than one time being awakened by my heart beating like i just ran a marathon. what causes this?

I have been awakened several times with my heart being like I just ran a marathon.  When I awoke I was laying on my side, heart beating wildly.  I turn over on my back and it slows down.  I go back to sleep and it happens again and wakes me up.  I just got off a 30 dya heart monitor, nothing happened.  I have no memory of any dream or anything that scared me.  I rarly dream at all.  I am an insomniac and take restoril.  I have long laundry list of health problems and am currently deemed disabled.  I get maybe 1 good nights sleep a week.  Can anyone tell me why this happens?  Or better, what it may be?

Your condition definitely sounds puzzling. It sounds like you have positional tachycardia, worse on your side. It sounds like a heart issue, but since you do complain of sleep issues, seeing a sleep specialist may be an option if your cardiologist can't help you. Good luck.
