In brief: Yes.

Palpitations, or feeling that the heart is pounding or racing is a fairly common symptom of hyperthyroidism.
Other common symptoms include feeling hot, tremors or shakiness, feeling jittery, trouble sleeping, irritability, as well as either weight loss or weight gain, and tiring easily.
