Speaking from experience Rick! Had the odd one or two, then drank a ridiculous amount of coffee one day, went for a run on a stressful day the next and had palpitation for a week, fixed eventually by beta blockers. While I had it they put me on aspirin with the plan being to go to blood thinners to reduce stroke risk. Once it went away docs were happy to stop the meds and not seen it since - I drink less coffee too (but still some).
Glad to hear you stopped. You'd have probably struggled anyway as you have less puff during palpitations.
They are surprisingly common, once I mentioned I'd had one lots of others said they had too.
