Unknown Form of Palpitation?

So I'm just laying here and it feels almost like a muscle twitch but I know it's my heart cause I check my pulse while it's happening. I have been proven to have PAC's but that was months ago.
It palpilates on the right side of my lower sternum sometimes. The only way I can describe it is I have my regular heart and then a smaller second heart beating in a different area of my chest, and when one beats the other will stop. Haha, I can't explain this. It also happens on my left side and below my sternum. It's just there's nothing like this on the internet anywhere.
I guess it's like ffluttering in different areas of my chest all around my sternum.

I'm pretty sure that all forms of palpatations are known.  Diagnosing which type based on what you're feeling is not going to be productive nor accurate.  It needs to be seen on an EKG.  

If it's unpredictable, your doctor can give you a a holter monitor, which you wear from 24 hours to 30 days, to catch the event.
