I have had palpatations since I was 14yrs old. After many tests with a Holter Monitor, Stress Test, Echocardiogram and who knows what else, they found nothing wrong with my heart. But what I was diagnosed with was Anxiety Disorder. I have Panic/Anxiety attacks and some Depression. I have taken meds for it since I was 16. I am 34 now and still have the palpatations, they are worse now but my Dr. says its normal, or that some people are just more sensitive to the heart's "fluttering". I notice it easily because when it happens I get nervous alittle. But they have never found anything wrong with my heart. The anxiety meds help with the palpatations, they do not occur as often, or I just don't notice them as much but when I do, it stops me in my tracks and I have to take a deep breath..and then I am ok...Stress is a big factor, worrying alot doesn't help either. Talk to your doctor about stress or anxiety issues..Good luck!!
