In brief: Aware of Heart Beat

Heart flutter is an awareness of your heart beat.
It may be related to a rapid heart beat, or extra beats and is often referred to as palpitations. It may be caused by stress, medication, or other lifestyle considerations and in the absence of structural heart disease is of little concern. It however also can be a marker of a serious heart problem so if persistent consult your doctor.

In brief: Palpitation Sx

Palpitations are an awareness of extra heartbeats which most of us have.
The sensation can be single or multiple and can sometimes last minutes. Different people may feel other symptoms along with them such as dizzy, lightheaded or short of breath. The palpitations are almost always atrial or ventricular premature beats. Usually benign but they are also found with abnormal hearts.
