    this page has helped me understand more about my palpitations. they are a quick 'rushing' beat (and often a little painful) that only lasts about 2 seconds. although they are rare now, i used to have them very regularly (probably due to my being overweight), but since i exercise daily (between 30-60 minutes) they occur far less. i am fairly sure now that they are quite harmless, though i will not ignore them as 'nothing', and i will rest a little easier now!!!
