Sensations of Irregular Heartbeat
Heart palpitations are sensations that feel like your heart is pounding or racing. You may have an unusual awareness or your own heartbeat, or you may feel like your heart is skipping beats. Palpitations can be felt in your chest, throat or neck.
May Be a Symptom of a More Serious Condition
They are usually harmless. But in some cases they may be a symptom of a more serious condition, such as an arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat, that may require treatment.
