What causes palpitations?

I have stopped going to the gym in October. Since then I have been having heart palpertations but these only start if my back muscles get stiff or sore. I have had my regular over 50 medical at doctors and my blood pressure and colesteral where fine.
Thank you

Welcome at HCM
I have gone through your query and being your physician I completely understand your health concerns.....
What is ur age? Do u have diabetes? Any medicines you are using? When exactly u suffer from palpitations? Any association?
Based upon your history it is difficult to comment about palpitations since it has got a lot of differentials.
If I am your attending physician I will get your ECG along with FBC and RBS.....I will get your thyroid function tests too....I will definitely rule out atrial fibrillation first....then I will look into other causes.
You should meet your Cardiologist so that u can be examined and investigated properly....
Mean while try to stay calm....
