Dear Carla Willis,
Welcome to healthcaremagic forum...
Palpitation is defined as increased heart beat which is usually felt consciously... This is definitely an abnormal event...
However most often palpitations are physiological response to an event such as fever, stress and anxiety.. This is normal...
Except this all other palpitations are abnormal event...
Cardiac examination and evaluation consisting of ECG, Holter monitoring is warranted in such conditions...
Hope this was useful..
