heart palpitations

I am a 29 yr old female.  I have recently started having palpitations.  They started about a couple months ago.  I notice them throughout the day and sometimes I have them during the night, especially if I am laying on my side.  I don't drink coffee or have anything with caffeine and I had started drinking green tea a couple months ago in the evening and after awhile I thought maybe that was the cause, but I have not had any tea for the past month and I am still experiencing the palpitations, some days more often than others.  I am healthy, I run 4 days a week, I am not overweight, no medications, no other health issues.  Is this something I should be concerned with?  Any recommendations?

If you have no other symptoms, e.g., chest pain, dizziness, high heart rate (over 100 at rest), numbness in any limbs, ... hum those are what comes to mind, I'd say have your primary care physician take a listen, and maybe an electrocardiogram.  Of course, if you heart isn't engaged in palps at the time of your visit nothing may be learned.

Don't think too hard about other symptoms, just be open minded.  If others develop I'd recommend making the earliest appointment you can get with your PCP.
