Palpitation Sx: Palpitations are an awareness of extra heartbeats which most of us have. The sensation can be single or multiple and can sometimes last minutes. Different people may feel other symptoms along with them such as dizzy, lightheaded or short of breath. The palpitations are almost always atrial or ventricular premature beats. Usually benign but they are also found with abnormal hearts.

Pain not palpitation: Most describe esophageal spasm as an intense squeezing/ pressure discomfort that definitely gets your attention and lasts 10-20 minutes. (versus palpitations, which are morelike fluttering/ drumming sensation and not necessarily painful).
