My 28 yr old son's heart beats about 3 times and then woosh?

It can beat really really slowly 3 times then woosh and it then speeds up and is random not rythmic.

It can beat really really slowly 3 times then woosh and it then speeds up and is random not rythmic. He hits himself in the chest all the time hard, I'm thinking he could bruise his heart or lungs. He refuses to stop, says it's the only thing that makes it feel better.
Several doctors told him he was too young to have a heart problem. He finally found one that tested him says he has atopic beat I think it is called I know it's not spelled right. He has gotten anxiety from it and panic attacks. Now we are hearing ritilin could have damaged his heart. He has no medical insurance right now so no way to see a doctor. He wants to know if there is any medicine to stop it from doing that, he hates it. I hate seeing him hit himself.
