Have you consulted with your doc? Always good to check in. I get heart palpitations and if I eat a rich meal, that is, one with lots of fats, sugars and salts I can get the heart palpitations. Stimulants like caffeine and even chocolate can set them off. Also not having a good nights rest makes me more vulnerable to them. Heart palpitations are extremely normal but if you're sensitized to them they get amplified and you can feel threatened by them, even though they are benign.
