Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend.
Welcome to HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.
This is a normal phenomenon. When you exercise there is an increase in heart rate. And when you stop the heart tries to control that increase which causes a feeling of palpitations.
In case you also feel palpitations at rest and during normal activities then this might require evaluation.
So to be sure you can simply get an ECG and Thyroid Function Test. In case we observe any abnormality in ECG we would discuss the further course of action.
If you have any further query please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
