Thank you for the information.

Some people sometimes feel their heart beating on lying on one side , specially in
high output states.

From your history it appears that you are feeling it while even in standing or sitting position for a brief period & you have to stay weird till it passes off.

You may have episode of tachy arrythmia (rapid &/or irregular heart rate & rhythm)

You should contact a Cardiologist to have an examination & ECG.

He may adise for event monitor where a device will be attached with your body to record the ECG & you will be able to record the episode
This will help to find what actually happened during the episode.

If you need further clarifications, I will be happy to explain further.
