Post Can palpitations...

in and of themselves cause chest pain? Or is pain an indication of a more serious problem?

I think they can through the mechanism of anxiety and tension. Concentrating on your palpitations can readily cause you to "clench" your chest muscles and maybe irritate sternum/rib joints>>>pain.

Don't self-diagnose this one though. Get an EKG while you are experiencing pain to make sure it's not serious.
