See answer: Palpitations is the word patient use to describe a fluttering sensation in the chest caused by skipped heart beats or rapid heartbeats. Patients with no heart disease can often experience palpitations. Sometimes they are brought on by anxiety, fatigue, caffeine and cough and cold medicines.Beta blockers are sometimes prescribed if the palpitations are annoying or very frequent.>http://bit.ly/1vlj5
