Cardiologist 's  Response
Dear patient,

Your heart rate should settle down after you exercise, particularly if its been hours, if that is not the case then we would be suspicious of an arhythmia, or abnormal rhythm of the heart, causeing some of the symptoms. I encourage you the next time that you have those sustained palpitations to go to an emergency department and get an EKG done, which may prompt a specific diagnosis.

Yours truly,
