It is not clear.: Many things can cause heart palpitation. Are you taking too much caffeine? Are you takeing red bull or mountain dew? Depends on the type of inhaler that you have as this can cause palpitation and can cause you to stay awake. If you are wheezing have you been told you have asthma, See your doctor
