Some palpitations: Are normal. Everyone has some irregularity in their heart beat. Some people have more than others, and some people are more sensitive too this irregularity, noticing it and being bothered by it. It sounds as though you have had a very good evaluation and that your heart is probably fine. I suspect anxiety is the main issue. Work on stress reduction - meditation, exercise, yoga, etc...
