Whenever our heart starts acting a little weird, all we can think of is that maybe we’re not letting it rest properly. It is understandable that we do sometimes stop and think when to exactly worry about heart palpitations. Especially since this COVID19 lockdown has started and we have paid a little more attention towards ourselves, we have started noticing the things we never noticed.

With keeping all the possibilities in mind, we should exactly know when the palpitations are normal and when they aren’t. There are a few factors that you should always remember if you experience heart palpitations way too much. In reality, palpitations aren’t something very serious to worry about, but, the question is, how would we know if there’s actually something wrong?
