A palpitation is characterized by an irregularly fast or hard heartbeat or the sensation of the heart fluttering or skipping a beat. Several different factors can cause a heart palpitation, most of which are not problematic. These include high emotions such as fear or stress, strenuous activity, hormones, certain medications or drugs, and some medical conditions such as hyperthyroidism and anemia. Sometimes, however, palpitations can be the symptom of an arrhythmia, which causes the heart to beat too fast, too slowly or irregularly. An arrhythmia can be the sign of an underlying heart problem such as heart failure or heart attack.
