In brief: Palpitations

These are caused by many things.
Stress, excitement, irritants both physical and chemical, pressure like a hiatal hernia or esophageal push or pull, and primary heart things, the causes are very many in number.

In brief: Abnormal heartbeats

Multiple potential causes: premature beats, tachycardia (rapid heartbeat), bradycardia (slow heartbeat).
Each has specific types. The best approach is to correlate symptoms and rhythm with a monitor of some type.
