Q. what causes the heart to race so fst it feels like it going to come right out your chest?

A1Too much caffeine or alcohol or food can sometimes cause your heart to race in an erratic way. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/01/080111201910.htm Heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias) occur when the electrical impulses in your heart that coordinate your heartbeats don't function properly, causing your heart to beat too fast, too slow or irregularly.

Arrhythmias are common and usually harmless. Most people have occasional, irregular heartbeats that may feel like a skipped, fluttering or racing heart. However, some heart arrhythmias may cause bothersome — sometimes even life-threatening — signs and symptoms.

A2Adrenaline...called also Epinephrine, is a hormone that causes the heart to increase it's rate among other things around the body. now, if it's really Adrenalin rushes that causes it- there must be a reason why it get secreted in such a manner. this you need to check out with a doctor. could be a tumor on the adrenal gland that causes it, could be anything.
go check it out A.S.A.P.
