[br]Heart palpitations can certainly be associated with shortness of breath, that is, the two symptoms together without a serious condition being present. That usually indicates that the irregularity of the heart rhythm is significant and may signal the need for a more comprehensive evaluation. In general the more serious the symptoms, such as lightheadedness, loss of consciousness, chest pain, shortness of breath, the more seriously one needs to take the problem. The more insignificant the symptoms, such as a sense of flip-flop or slight irregularity of the pulse, the less worrisome the situation. If a patient has known heart disease such as a previous heart attack or a condition called congestive heart failure (CHF), the symptoms of palpitations need to be evaluated by the patient's physician.[br]

Heart palpitations can be harmless, but it never hurts to check with your doctor.
