In brief: Absolutely.

yes, of course. Palpitation is one of the symptoms of anxiety attack.
Moreover, you might be experiencing panic attacks (a more intense version of anxiety). It is possible to learn exercises to manage your anxiety and panic attacks. Feel free to contact me directly, if you want more specific answers.
