Multiple causes: there can be multiple causes: stress, fatigue, medications, thyroid disease, structural problems with heart. You can be afraid of the unknown. You need to see your doctor to see if there is a treatable cause.

Palps: The feeling of palpitations is very disconcerting to many people. Anxiety is a very common phenomenon and these can stimulate it and exacerbate it.

Ectopy: premature beats could be a random, nonspecific electrical activity, others could relate to strain to the heart or a pathology -- so they can be benign or pathologic, and required further testing and treatment.
