In brief: Yes, but rarely.
If you are on thyroid, coming off estrogen, will increase your free thyroid levels.
This point is irrefutable and certainly can cause palpitations. However, it may exacerbate depression, which increases the likelihood of palpitations as well. If you have this problem and are not on thyroid, you should see your doctor and have and ecg!
