See a doctor: You need to know what is really going on before any treatment can be recommended. Cutting out caffeine is a good idea while waiting to see your doctor.

Avoid stress: Get plenty of sleep, avoid stress, don't smoke or use alcohol, caffeine or energy drinks. Avoid colas, mountain dew, dr. Pepper, diet pills, and short acting asthma inhalers. If that doesn't work, see your doctor for further testing.

A doctor evaluation: What's causing the palpitation? That is the key to your symptoms. Do you have hyperthyroidism, anxiety, atrial fibrillation, ohter heart dysrythmias, severe anemia, fever, excess alcohol use (binge), energy drinks etc.
