What might lead to having heart palpitations?

Many reasons. Palpitations can be felt as irregular beats, fast beats, or skipped beats. A common cause can be due to extra early beats generated by either the top or bottom heart chambers. Other times, palpitations may be due to the heart going into an abnormal rhythm. Sometimes this is due to problems with the heart muscle or enlargement of the heart. Thyroid, anemia, caffeine, and alcohol can also be causes.
