In brief: Heart family history

Family history of heart disease is often clinically important, and an indicator that preventive evaluation and treatment may be especially valuable.
Palpitations are not usually a symptom of coronary disease (which runs in families) but may be a symptom of other heart conditions, some of which also can run in families. For a personal review of your case consider a consult here on HealthTap.
