Brief Answer:

Palpitations.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Regarding your concern, I would explain that this is a normal finding and it is indicative of palpitations, which are probably related to a normal physiological reaction to anxiety, caffeine intake or physical activity.

It does not indicate any serious medical condition.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
