Hi Kindra,

It's possible that those butterflies are originating from your stomach. Remember that heart burn is caused by something from the stomach yet resonates all the way to chest.

If you're fearing a heart attack because of that, then that is definitely not how a heart attack feels like.

I've had those feelings too, my doc ruled out heart problems so we looked at digestive issues.  She put me on antacids and sure enough the feeling went away.  Sometimes i get lazy after eating a large meal and lie down, which brings the feeling back. Be mindful of what you eat and when.  Thats gonna be difficult this time of year, so many tasty dishes come our way.

I hated when I first got those. Like the others said, it was stomach acid! The antacids take care of it real fast. Not always 100%, but they seriously reduce it and quickly. It happens quick enough that its also obviously what was causing the problem, which helps to calm down a lot.

It's strange when I get an anxious feeling, for example I wake up that way some mornings, I get the anxiety feeling in my chest.  For me it isn't acid, it's anxiety.  I hate the feeling too.

I almost agree greend! I took antacids and they helped a bit but I can still feel the tickle feeling! Must just be my anxiety being stubborn!

Kindra,  stress can cause heart palpitations when can feel like flutters in your chest.  Doctor won't notice them unless you're having them when he's listening to your chest.  Watch your caffeine intake and avoid energy drinks like the plague!  I used to have something called premature or extra systoles. (totally benign) from stress and caffeine!
