Arrhythmia: See your doc. You are having palpitations, which may indicate an irregular heart beat. There are many types, most of which are not serious. Testing, such as an ECG, overnight monitor, and blood work will likely be helpful in tracking this down. In the meantime. decrease or eliminate caffeine, and avoid stress.
