I have Panic Disorder, and I have this frequently. I know (for me) it's not Mitral Valve Prolapse, because I had an echo cardiogram specifically to rule it out. In my experience, Cristi601 is right on the money in saying that awareness of your own heartbeat is one of the top symptoms of anxiety. It certainly is true for me. That's how I can tell that panic symptoms are coming on (by my own increased heart rate or by a pounding pulse). I read somewhere that those of us with some form of anxiety are for the most part the percentage of the population that can sense their own heartbeat. Apparently not everyone can. I also read that a significant percentage of the population has PVC's (skipped heartbeats) but doesn't feel them.

Anyway, I was told that we notice these things more in the evening because of fatigue and the gradual removal of other distractions. So when we lie down to go to bed, it's the perfect opportunity for our mind to subconsciously focus on what our bodies are doing.

Hope this helps.
