first you need to go to the doc and find out whats causing the palpatations. they may not even be palpatations. you will need several tests like an ekg ( a tracing of the electrical activity of the heart).this is painless and takes 5 min. or less. caffeine causes a lot of palpatations as well as smoking
, so definitely cut down on both. palpatations can lead to more serious problems, so get it checked out. good luck.
