A palpitation is when your pulse, whether in your heart or in a vein, feels like it's pounding and pulsating. It's a normal effect of adrenaline and exertion. Palpitations are only cause for concern if they occur persistently or are accompanied by chest pains or fever.
Palpitations are a sensation of a fast or irregular heartbeat, and they can be caused by various factors. Some common causes of palpitations include anxiety or stress, caffeine or alcohol consumption, nicotine use, certain medications, and hormonal changes during pregnancy or menopause.
