Palpitations: Everyone has palpitations sometimes. Be sure you're not drinking xs coffee, cola, or other caffeine source. If you smoke, don't. Get enough rest. Minimize stress. If they persist and are bothersome, further tests should be done to check your electrolytes and thyroid function. Your normal echo and age signify that they are benign.

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.
