Suffering with heart palpitations, occasional pain. ECG, blood test, ECHO normal. Should I be worried?

Hi, I have suffered with what I think are heart palpitations. I have a hard thump in my chest and then a pause.sometimes it hurts a little but I have never passed out. I have had ecgs a blood test and an echo scan. All of these test came back fine but I am so worried the docs have over looked something and that im a walking time bomb. Should I be worried?

thank you.
there are many causes of palpitations.
the most common pathological causes are anxiety,thyrotoxicosis,anemia,valvular & structural heart disease,sick sinus syndrome etc.
if palpitation is associated with sudden loss of consciousness for a brief period,dizziness then a cardiac conduction problem is most likely.
it may be periodic.
in that case an ECG may be normal.
ecg abnormality only obtained during palpitation.
so a continuous ecg monitoring(holter) may be helpful.
it is better to consult a cardiologist.
