    It would be hard to figure out what is going on with you without knowing exactly what the EKG said. If you get PAC's they can cause palpitations, or if you had a tachycardia in sinus rhythm then they might not do much besides give you a betablocker. Is he planning on doing something with the results- what did he say the plan of action is?
