Heart Palpitations in Women

Heart palpitations in women are common. Heart palpitations can be a symptom of an underlying condition such as heart problems, anemia, or a thyroid problem. The overuse of stimulants is one of the most common causes of heart palpitations. Symptoms of heart palpitations include a fluttering sensation in the chest, a racing feeling in your chest, and a feeling of skipped beats.
