Ive had them for a few years now, but its been getting gradually worse this past year. I know Im over weight and I smoke (not a heavy smoker, maybe a pack every 3-5 days?) I just had one a few minutes ago and its almost like my heart skips a beat then has a really strong beat like its trying to catch up.
I should go to the dr hu? grrrrr...

I get them occasionally as a side effect of my heart murmur. Since nicotine is a stimulant, I'd say that was causing it. I'm not allowed any caffeine (well, weak tea is okay), so no pop or chocolate. And no sugary stuff. I also take hawthorn berries as a general circulation health boost and I think it works: I have less palpitations when I take those regularly (used to take 4 capsules/day and now take 2/day).
I say your dr's just going to tell you to quit smoking!
