Always had heart palps, had tests years ago all normal. lately palps increased. Can Atrial Fibrillation just develop? or do you always have it?

In brief: Atrial fibrillation

AFib can 'just develop'.
If you have anxiety disorder, it will magnify any minimal extrasystoles you may have. There are many monitoring devices, event recorders even implantable but your doctor can best evaluate whether you need aggressive attempts at seeing if you have an arrhythmia and what it is.
