Recently Iâve been experiencing a weird heart sensation almost like my heart is jumping, Iâve experienced this before but it never persisted for 5 days straight,. Itâs gotten to the point where itâs waking me up at night, and itâs making it uncomfortable to sleep. Iâm worried it might be something serious,I just turned 15 . Any idea on what this could be ? Or if itâs potentially dangerous?
