In brief: It can.

Arrhythmia can give you palpitations, speed up your heart rate and drop your blood pressure.
The symptoms one feels could easily be confused with anxiety. The diagnosis can be made easily with an ekg or holter monitor study.

In brief: Yes

Anxiety is often described by sufferers as having heart palpitations.
Of course it could be many things which an md should be consulted for, but yes anxiety could easily explain this symptom.
