Hi ,

Thanks for your query.

A 24/7 palpitations at the same rate for 2 years is quite unusual.
You had mentioned about the test that you have done in the past, and the test were normal not even tachycardia.
In this case the cause for palpitations may be the anxiety or Hyperthyroidism.
A thyroid profile should be done to see elevated blood thyroxine level and ECG study is helpful. Hyperthyroidism is known to cause palpitations and this will be evident in ECG.
Avoiding stress will helpful in controlling the symptom.Unnecessary worrying should be avoided.
Avoid Tea/coffee.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
