Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
the symptoms you are having are more likely to be due to anxiety rather than a heart problem. as long as the beats are regular there is no heart problem. Palpitation is due to anxiety. Tab. Propranolol will help you feel better.Still an ECG will clear all your doubts.
