Q: High heart rate causing reduced baby movements??

I'm 25 weeks pregnant now and for most of the way through I've had episodes of increased heart rate and sometimes palpitations. It's not often, the doctor checked my bloods and ran an ECG and told me everything is fine so they just advised me to ask again if it suddenly became more frequent, but mostly it happens maybe once a week or once a fortnight. It's horrible though, I can have maybe 10-15 minutes of my heart racing like 100-120bpm which makes me feel short of breath and quite unwell. What I'm wondering is, would a spell like that make the baby stop moving? I feel movement really regularly and especially in the evening, but tonight he just wasn't moving like normal at all, fine earlier on but didn't start up after my evening snack like he always does. I was focusing so much on baby it was ages until I noticed that my heart-rate was quite high; now that it's starting to slow, he's been kicking away as usual, just about two hours late! Anyone else experience something similar?
