Resolved Question:

hiya, 25, female. so recently my heart's been pumping like really hard, so much so that when I lie down to sleep I feel breathless and and my torso and limbs are vibrating from the force of the beating. there's some pain as well in the lowest ribs when i breathe while lying down. propping up on pillows and breathing deeply doesn't seem to work :( Is it some arrythmia or something? thanks!
