Very little sleep and heart palpitations, any advice on eliminating

Very little sleep and heart palpitations - any advice on eliminating the palpitations?
I work two jobs and have 4 children who keep me very busy. Because I am so busy, I get an average of 4-6 hours of sleep each night. Recently, over the past 4-5 months, I have experienced heart palpitations. I have spoken with my doctor, and there is not much that he can do because there is really nothing medically wrong. My blood pressure, cholesterol, and sugar levels are all normal or below normal. My thyroid is fine. An EKG showed nothing. Though I do have stress, I can't say I have been having panic attacks. I find that if I can get more sleep, the palpitations are less frequent, but this is not always the case. I don't feel as if there is anything wrong with me so to speak, but the palpitations are truly annoying. Changing my lifestyle is not an option at this point because financially, I cannot afford to not work both jobs. Is there a supplement, vitamin, etc., that has been known to reduce or eliminate palpitations?

I would maybe try another doctor / 2ND opinion. Just remember that you know your body best and if your doc. is not doing anything and it is really worrying you, then make sure and get another opinion. If it is the panic attacks, see if they can suggest anything for you. I have anxiety, panic att. and have tried several things ( Zoloft was the best for my panic attacks, but made me to tired ) i am trying vitamin b shots, flax seed and exercise. I wish you luck, and hope you figure it out!
