Thanks for posting your query.
There may be two possibilities: any cardiac illness/ any systemic illness
Cardiac illnees may be arrhythmias/ any structural cardiac illness.
You should go for electro-cardiogram (ECG) and 2D Echo. Any type of cardiac illness may be detected by these test. If there is any doubt then you can go for electro-physiological studied of heart.
Systemic illness just like thyroid problem may cause palpitation feeling.
You should go for repeat thyroid profile test and serum sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium.
Put your query if you have.
