Palpitation is common and often does not indicate heart disease. I wonder if you had any palpitaiton while the Holter was on? If not you need a longer term one (you can have a week long Holter, or one you put on when you have the palpitation). If you did have the palpitation when the Holter was on, and there were no abnormal rhythms seen you can rest assured that the problem is likely to be sinus tachycardia (an accelerated normal beat) or ectopic beats (feels like missed beats). You seem to have a lot of stress and that is the obvious cause. Reduce caffeine and alcohol, take more exercise and ask your Cardiologist if a beta blocker might help.
Take care
