My son was experiencing some of this also and we went to a cardiologist. He said that teenagers, most often boys experience adrenaline rushes and that they are harmless. My son would almost pass out with them, but the doctor said that it was not dangerous just a nuisance.
I hope this helps you a little. Good luck to you!

yeah man, it sounds like adreniline. which is always fun! if you do get the funny beats, lie on the ground and put your hands above your head.. give your heart a bit of room. Xbox rules though i dont blame you for wanting to play! take care x
