Fast heartbeat, chest pain...ect. Mostly when laying down or trying to sleep.

Hi I am 20 years old and when lying down or taking a nap or going to sleep my heart beat gets faster and feels like its going to jump out of my chest sometimes. I've gone to the doctors before for palpitations with a skipping heart beats but they went awhile for awhile. I'm not sure if this is the same. I feel short of breath sometimes, I have chest pain on the left side, and a couple occasions I found myself not breathing in my sleep for a few seconds. I also feel that I need to take deep breaths. I am easily tired and I get migraines This is very uncomfortable. Unfortunately I also have a seizure disorder, and I stress way to much. I'm not sure if this is just stress or anxiety or nothing at all. What do u guys think?

I have had similar problems recently and have completely excluded all stimulants from my diet. I also aim to go to bed at 9.00 and avoid stressful or tiring situations. I also avoid highly processed food and choose organic food where possible. I am much better than I was. Hope you can get relief.

Research Histamine Intolerance.  That is how I found the answers to my racing heart issues, heart palpatations, breathing issues, etc.,  Jost doctors don't know about it, and therefore would not be diagnosed.
