Usually benign: Most palps with a structurally normal heart are benign, meaning they are more annoying than dangerous. If there is dizziness, shortness of breath or near-fainting, then that requires evaluation with long-term ECG monitoring. If there are none of those danger signs, I typically provide reassurance. If the symptoms are still , then I prescribe a monitor to guide us. If worried, seek second opinion.
