Cannot be excluded.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem one thing that I will suggest you is that many people get palpitations after climbing stairs but most of the time these are innocent but any pathology can be excluded after complete evaluation only .

I will advise you to see a physician , get your ECG and 2 D ECHO done to look for any cardiac cause . Next in your age possibilty of thyroid disorder leading to such symptoms remains high . Kindly get a complete thyroid profile done . Only after this evaluation anything can be said .

Wish you good health.
