Very common. Palpitation may be very common at your age group and may not necessarily indicate a real heart problem.

Hard to say... There are many types of heart palpitations. Most aren't serious but it's impossible to know for sure until you get an ekg while having palpitations. If they don't last long then you can wear a heart monitor that records your ekg when it happens. It could be caused by stress, low magnesium, low blood sugar or food allergy reactions but often the cause remains unknown. Usually treatment isn't needed.
