Palpitations when doing exercise walks in hot weather

So with this hot weather this week in Boston, I have noticed that I am getting palpitations when I do my daily exercise walks. Nothing huge. I bump up to 90-95 bpm (from maybe 70). They last anywhere from 5 seconds to 20 minutes and then right back down to my normal 60-65. I had an ablation 3 months ago and had palpitations for the first month or so after. Then they basically disappeared until they came back this week. Sound familiar to anyone?

    From things I d read, I would venture a guess that this could be stages of recuperation. My EP says the 3 month time frame for recovery ain’t written in stone.

    With hot weather, it's important to stay hydrated. During recovery from ablation, it helps to not only stay hydrated but to have magnesium (in conjunction with potassium) to keep the heart calm.
