Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.

Heart Palpitations

Feeling your heart beating can be uncomfortable. If you don't have any other symptoms, it's likely that this will quickly pass if you relax and are able to think about other things. If it persists despite resting and relaxing, call your doctor's office.

If your doctor is able to do an EKG while you are having palpitations, it can be very helpful and usually reassuring.
