Palpitations: Did you experience palpitations during the EKG or while wearing the Holter monitor? If so, no cardiac arrhythmia was present and perhaps you're only experiencing a forceful heart beat caused anxiety,caffeine, spices, alcohol,hyperthyroidism. If you didn't feel palpitations while on the monitor, wear an event or loop monitor for an extended period or until you feel palpitations and note them
