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.

Don't drink more than one cup or coffee a day. Get regular daily exercise for at least half an hour and if things don't improve go back to the doc for more steps. ...Read more
