Thanks for the query

The uncomfortable sensation of heart beat is known as palpitations. It is normal for the hear rate increase when u r smoking but abnrmal while u r at rest. Please get an ECHO done and also an ECG
PLease abstain from smoking until u r proven to have no structural disease of the heart
