Palpitations: I assume your thyroid is not overactive and that you have no structural heart disease by EKG and echocardiogram. I recommend a treadmill stress test to determine whether exercise worsens your atrial irritability. If not, then start an exercise program. If your Pac's are symptomatic taking a beta blocker should help the atrial irritability and,perhaps,even your stress.
