In brief: Heart Skipping
A palpitation is a sense of your heart skipping -- it may not actually be doing so, but is the feeling that it is.
It is up to your doctors to look for heart rhythm or other problems.

Palpitations can be sign of heart rhythm abnormality. It should be evaluated. Consider evaluation with an EKG or Holter Monitor that you wear for 24 hrs or up to 30 days. Occassionally the sense of palpitations is due to anxiety or stress, but it should be evaluated either way. Consider reduction in stress and decreased or elimination of caffiene
