Pheochromocytoma: Several endocrine tumors can cause flushing and palpitations of your heart. A particular tumor of the adrenal gland called a pheochromocytoma can cause this. Carcinoid tumors can cause flushing and palpitations. Heart disease by itself could cause this. See your doctor. He may want to send you to a cardiologist and an endocrinologist for work up.
