In brief: Same thing
Actually, palpitation is a symptom. It is a sensation of fluttering in the chest most commonly because the heart is beating irregularly or harder and/or faster than norma.

In brief: FLUTTERING
Palpitation refers to the symptom, that is a flipping sensation in the chest, or a skipping sensation.
So the word palpitations refers to the symptom just described.
