Hi there, I was typing this up, but my computer froze!
Palpitations are one of the most common problems of outpatients who present to internists and cardiologists.
Although the cause is usually benign, palpitations are occasionally a manifestation of potentially life-threatening arrhythmia. Palpitations are a sensory symptom. They are defined as an unpleasant awareness of the forceful, rapid, or irregular beating of the heart. Patients may at times describe the sensation as a rapid fluttering in the chest, flip-flopping in the chest, or a pounding sensation in the chest or neck, and these descriptions may help elucidate the cause of the palpitations. The differential diagnosis of palpitations is extensive: including cardiac, psychiatric, medication, habits (caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, drugs), metabolic diseases, or stress.

I'm glad you have seen a cardiologist 5 months ago and had cardiac echo and holter and echo and all results came back normal
at your age of 35, potentially life threatening arrhythmia after normal heart testing is extremely unlikely.
you have excessive anxiety symptoms which is much more likely to be causing your heart palpation symptoms.
