thanks for writing to us

As you are saying that you are feeling constant palpitation it looks like sinus tachycardia as the cause for palpitation.

Underlying cause may be hyperthyroidism, Anemia( as you feel easy fatiguability and weakness),
anxiety or structural heart abnormality like Mitral Valve Prolapse.

You get some routine blood test like hemoglobin, thyroid test, ECG, ECHOCARDIOGRAM

I think you will have solution of your problem after these test

thank you
