Can palpitations be caused by mold spores? Or allergies? I'm trying to figure it out b/c I was woken up out of my sleep with palpitations.

In brief: No

Although mold spores can produce allergens and mycotoxins, I am not aware of any evidence that they directly cause palpitation.
On the other hand, if you have asthma and are exposed to molds you are allergic to, the attack may lead to cardiac palpitation.
