I have had anxiety since I was a little girl...I was even on T.V. for it! (keywords: Sarah, 20/20, Worry in America) So I know what I'm talking about.
It sounds like you're experiencing some generalized-anxiety. If you don't have anything in particular to be worried/excited about, and you haven't taken any phetamines (such as adderall), then you are probably just experiencing a Tremor of a panic-attack.
Is it night-time where you're at? I know that when the sun goes down, my mind tends to race a bit more, and my heart will follow suit. The problem w/panic is that the more you fixate on it (your heart pounding/racing thoughts), the more worried you may become. Here's my advice to you, if you don't have access to any Xanax or just don't like to take meds:
1.)Breathe. Not just in and out, but breath in through your nose deeply, hold for a count of 5, then exhale slowly. Repeat a few times.
2.) It is so important to detach yourself from what's going on physically, and emotionally...What I mean is, remind yourself that this is merely your body overreacting, and pretty soon you will calm down and feel fine. Listen to your body, but do so as an observer. This allows you to not fixate on your heart racing.
I guess it was rather dumb of me to make a list, considering I only put two things, but just contact me if you need further tips...like I said-I am an expert on Anxiety.
