I have 1-2 heart palpitations a day, I don't drink coffee and I had a good EKG in june. Is this concerning?

Depends: If the palpitations are brief, lasting 1-2 seconds, and feel like a "skipped heart beat" or an "extra heart beat" then these are generally benign and of no concern. If the palpitations are prolonged and characterized by sustained rapid heart beats, then you should be evaluated by your physician. These are usually safe and not life-threatening, but can be annoying.
