More evaluation: Palpitations can be related to "normal" sinus tachycardia, or it could be an arrhythmia. Additional possibilities include thyroid disorder and other diagnoses. The list of possibilities is quite long! I would suggest consultation with a cardiologist and additional testing is warranted. When you see the physician, it is important to add additional details about your palpitations.
