In brief: More tests?

Have you considered an heart monitor to correlate your symptoms with a possible underlying change in heart rhythm? That may be a worthwhile next step.

In brief: Palpitation

I agree with the other answer .
.One more thing to be aware of is increased bloating and constipation. Often if your small bowel is full and you have increased bloating, that can push up the diaphragm, which can push up against the pericardial sac inducing palpitations.
