Palpitations. Are they stress caused? Why is the intensity increasing?

hi, i get palpitations. i initially thought it was stress induced because once the environment became less stressful the palpitations ceased. however, of late, i have been getting palpitations following a hot shower taken after moderate to high intensity excercise, i often have to lie down and take deep breaths to ease the palps. should i be worried?
