Welcome here.
I can understand your concerns.
If all the reports are normal, the most probable reason for your palpitations is anxiety or stress.

I would suggest you to practice meditation to keep yourself relaxed.

Quick ways to control palpitations are
Deep inspiration followed by pursed lip exhalation.
Drinking a glass of cold water.

Hope this helps.
