Which is the correct way to mention the idea of sudden feeling of heart palpitation:
My heart started palpitating.
I felt my heart
I was just describing the journey to a haunted house. So I had to choose any one of the above two sentences. The complete description that I used is as follows:
We reached late in the evening in the mall. When we reached a shopping store, we just noticed that there was a scary house near that shop. There was a good discount on the tickets of scary house. Thus, I purchased 2 tickets and then I entered the house along with my wife. There they have played loud scary music. Suddenly my heart started palpitating.
So, I know what the word means. I just need to know how to use it so it sounds natural.
