Heart flutters!?
« on: December 31, 2013, 05:06:57 PM »
So I haven't had many problems with health anxiety lately...until now.
I got a really bad cold (the doctor said it was allergies, but I think it's a cold) this past week and I'm still coming down from it. My sinuses are still a bit drippy and I'm still coughing up a bit of mucus. During my cold, I'd get heart flutters a couple times a day. They scared me, but seemed to calm down as of yesterday, when I didn't get any at all. I was fine until just now, when I got one out of the blue. Then another. Then another. Back to back, constantly.

They seem to have stopped a bit right now but they've suddenly come on a lot more frequent. When I put my hand to my chest my heart feels like it's beating normally. I haven't had chest pain or tightness or shortness of breath, nor dizziness or shakiness or any of that. Just the flutters. It's freaking me out though! It feels really weird. Maybe it's from chest congestion? Or maybe it's muscles in my chest from all the coughing?

Should I be concerned??
