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.

No: Haven't heard of onion palpitations. Green onions and yellow onions aren't spicy enough to create the excitement that might lead to sensations of palpitations. Eating cooked onions should be fine, just like eating other cooked vegetables. 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

Tough to say...: There are certain rhythm problems that only come on with exertion. Palpitations however, are an unnatural awareness of your heartbeat, so even being severely deconditioned can do it. I'd find a cardiologist or cardiac electrophysiologist and have them run you on a treadmill while wearing ekg. If that doesn't work, we'd get you an "event monitor" to record the palpitations. ...Read more
