In brief: Abnormalities/Damage

Abnormalities or damage to the structure of your heart are the most common.
However there are other causes: heart attacks, high blood pressure, stress, an overactive thyroid gland, medications, caffeine, lung diseases, viral infections, and/or previous heart surgeries.

In brief: Rapid heart rate.

Tachycardia (rapid heartbeat) causes one to feel palpitations in the chest.
It can be caused by exertion, fever or a cardiac arrhythmia such as atrial tachycardia, atrial flutter or atrial fibrillation.
