Because I have heart palpitations does it mean I will get arryhtymia?

Let me clarify for U. When the heart "skips", it's called arrhythmia. When a person feels their heart "skip", it's called palpitations. Sometimes there is arrhythmia with no palpitation (ie, it's not felt). Sometimes there is palpitation with no arrhythmia (ie, a false alarm). Both situations are very common.

Needs eval. The nature of your palpitations should be investigated. Some people have a very forceful heartbeat that they feel in their head. I would avoid herbals for now as some are cardiac stimulants. A 24 hour to 30 day event monitor would be very helpful.
