    it makes my heart beat faster

    Hello.

    Can I say something makes my heart beat faster when that thing makes me nervous.

    Does this work?

    Thinking about exams always made my heart beat faster.

    What other situations can I say "make my heart beat faster"?

    Could you please offer some examples?

    Re: it makes my heart beat faster

    ... made my heart race.
    ... made my heart pound.
    ... made my heart thump in my chest.

    The first of my suggestions is the only one that refers to the heart rate. The others are more of a feeling.

    It's grammatically correct and would be understood.
