Have you been drinking a lot of caffeine or are you under a lot of stress, do you smoke? All these things can cause palpitations. Palpitations are nothing to worry about usually unless you have heart disease. Everyone has them but most don't even realize they are having them. They are not dangerous as long as they keep going away. If you are having a lot of caffeine, stress or smoke and you cut back on those things they should go away. Try to ignore them, they are not serious, just irritating.
