This is normally seen after full fatty meals as the blood supply to GI tract increases morethan 1.5 lit / heart has to pump more.But get an ecg done to exclude cardiac problems or cardiomyopathy.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
As you would know, proteins and fatty food are tough to the digestive system and require good blood supply in order to function great. The increased blood supply occurs which you feel as palpitations. This could be normal. In case you feel chest pain and dizziness, you need to get yourself looked at. I would recommend you get an ECG and get it reported by a Doctor as soon as possible to be safe. You haven't quoted your age, sex, height and weight.
