In brief: Not necessarily...

...But you should have your palpitations evaluated by a cardiologist, as it may be some form of cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heart beat) which can cause other problems, such as intracardiac blood clots embolizing to other parts of your body or else lower your blood pressure, both of which can cause life-threatening or debilitating problems to other parts of your body .

Everyone has palpitations sometimes.
Have you ever in your life been dizzy? Does that mean you're going to die of a stroke?
