Psychiatrist 's  Response
There must be some reason that you are unaware.It may be in your subconscious mind.But first your cardiac check up necessary.ECG,blood pressure, 2D Echo etc after clinical examination by a physician.However if everything normal just take a visit of a psychiatrist to make your self counsel about your palpitation and may some psychological cause found out and treated by behavior therapy.
