Am 19. I've read stories of ventricular tachycardia and sudden death and am worried every time I have heart palpitations.  Reassurance would be great?

Relax: We all have occasional extra heart beats. If you have a structurally normal heart (no weakening of the muscle) and no other familial risk factors (Long QT, ARVD, Cardiomyopathy, etc.) then you really don't have anything to worry about.
