In brief: Many reasons

There are many reasons for palpitations and breathlessness.
A benign reason would include anxiety and panic attack. A more serious reason would include a rapid arrhythmia which can produce identical symptoms. A visit with a cardiologist would be able to sort this out.

In brief: Lottsa

Reasons. See a good internist for evaluation: a stress test & event recorder may settle the issue after appropriate blood tests are ordered.
