The heart has a regular rhythm and rate, if there is an abnormal rhythm, it impinges on the normal one thus causing distortion of the usual rhythm of the heart, and we can perceive this heart beat referred to as palpitations. Sometimes abnormal rhythms need 24 hours holter monitoring to be detected. So, if your symptoms persist, please discuss this with your doctor.
