Palpitations can be caused by many things that are not medically concerning, such as caffeine, stress, certain drugs or medications. However it could be caused by something more medically concerning such as an irregular heart beat or atrial fibrillation


Answer by  kmead (7)

In many cases palpation is associated with a dysrhythmia of the heart. This could be a symptom of heart disease. if the heart fails to pump properly it could deprive organs of blood and oxigen and may become life threatening. For immediate concerns an EKG can detect a problem otherwise see a doctor.
