Lyme disease: If you were treated as you describe for acute lyme disease then it is not likely that your current issues are related to that prior infection. Without knowing what you mean by "palpitation" or "checks out ok" cannot comment further, but hopefully you have been seen by a cardiologist. Good luck.
