Palpitations: You need to get an ekg, holter, event monitor and loop recorder in sequence to diagnose cause of your palpitations. If everything is normal, then it simply anxiety disorder. Consult your physician.

Yes: palpitations in the morning is not uncommon . the body is gearing up for the day and catacholamines are on the rise to prepare you for the day. The GERD can also do this . while lying flat reflux of acid irritates the esophagus and causes palptitations. A holter,echo,upper GI all can help determine causes.

Yes and no: Particularly as people get older, the heart can beat prematurely or rapidly causing palpitations. That is so common and usually benign so that you might say it is normal. It partly depends on what you mean by normal. Is it normal to have grey hair or wrinkles?
