Heart flutter: Heart flutter is from a rapidly beating heart or from arrhythmia. It is normal with even mild exercise, but should not cause chest pain if it is normal.

Nighttime common: People are much more prone to feel irregularity in their heart beat at night when they're quiet and not distracted.

Can onions cause heart palpitations?

Can onions cause heart palpitations?

Theoretically, getting hit in the heart by a big yellow onion flying at high speed can cause a problem, similar getting hit by a baseball, so don't throw onions. ...Read more

Why do I get heart palpitations upon exertion?

If that doesn't work, we'd get you an "event monitor" to record the palpitations. ...Read more
