My heart is beating too fast too strong for no reason

Iam 23 y female i have no health issues other than chronic migrane .. as for the past few years i have these symptoms , while sitting laughing taking lecture i start to feel dizzy with my heart racing then i cant catch my breath my heart beats soooo fast and hard i cant move as my body is numb and tinggling i feel like i will pass out it but i dont it goes away in 2 3 minutes but i still feel dizzy and not normal
One time i went to the hospital my heart was racing i cant move i couldnt breath i was taking my breath too fast i was passing out my eye was rolling up my body was in spasm few minutes and it was gone
I have done every investigation nothing is wrong i went to different doctors they all say its panic attack but iam not worried about anything or sad it happens when i am taking lecture or happy or out with my friends
Last time my heart was soooo fast soo soo hard it felt like its going to jump out of my body

Sounds like garden-variety panic to me.  Please note that p anic attacks do not have to be related to *anything* that is going on in your life.  It often seems to be a completely independent function of your nervous system:  For some reason, the nervous system goes on 'high alert' without any good reason. And if you were able to interview other members of your family--and if they answered honestly--you'd probably see a family tendency.

The good news is that panic is treatable.  It may require some medication and a bit of talk therapy, but, boy, is it treatable!

Ask your doc for a referral to a shrink or a counselor.  Your life will get better.
