This is Dr. David

that is good you have had prior heart testing

yes, your fast temporary racing heart beat sounds like it is due to excessive anxiety or panic attack symptoms.

that is good after 2 minutes it calmed down

you should see your doctor

if you have bad anxiety symptoms, you might need medication treatment to help decrease anxiety symptoms

medications like zoloft or paxil can help decrease panic attacks and anxiety symptoms.

stress and anxious situations can often cause fast temporary heart beats.
