Palpitations everyday

Hi everyone! I’m really really struggling at the moment with heart palpitations, I have anxiety and have had palpitations for a lil over 10 years. Normally I can handle them and just forget about them but recently I’ve been have a few more than what I normally would, my heart isn’t racing it just feels like a flutter or a strong thump. I don’t get chest pain and I don’t sweat ect when I get them. Recently I’ve had about 5 in about 6mins, I have anxiety and I’m a very stressful person! Is it possible that my mental health and me constantly worrying when the next palpitations will come are making these worse and more frequent? I don’t drink I’m stopped fizzy drinks ect. I don’t really drink a lot of water and most of the time I only drink de caffeinated tea 2 in 6/7 hours? I’m trying to drink more water and eat more healthily as I’m so scared. These palpitations make me not want to do anything leave the house ect they really are ruining my life and all I keep thinking is I’m going to die, I’m so fixated on my chest and my heart I’m just wondering the more I think about them can that make them worse? I had a ekg a month ago and the doc said it looked fine I also had a full blood test and all that showed was low b12 which I’m on injections for. Someone please talk to me I’m so worried mentally am I causing these horrible palpitations or is it something more sinister ????
