  • I had what felt like heart palpitations occasionally while pregnant and for some months post partum. I did not have it looked at and it eventually went away.

  • if your 24 hour holter and your ekg and echoes came back normal, i would say cut out all caffeine. if they continue, it is stress related most likely.
    practice or google some relaxation techniques.
    one easy technique is to take a deep breath, don't let it out. take in a bit more, a bit more, a bit more for 4 inhalations. when you feel like you are going to burst, let out the air, this is a quick and easy technique at any time.

  • Caffeine was an issue for me. I remember that it would sometimes happen when I had soda while studying. I don't remember how long it lasted; at least 6 months.
