Heart flutters?
« on: August 24, 2014, 04:47:46 PM »
Hey guys! Hope you're all doing well.

I am just wondering if anyone can help me? Recently i've been noticing heart "flutters" if you will. They seem to happen when laying down or standing up. I'm not TOO concerned... but my father did die of heart attack / disease at 56. (I'm only 23)

My anxiety has been quite low but i'm wondering if anyone had this or knows what they may be? I do hope my heart is ok! I've checked my beats per minute and it's around 60-65. Which is pretty good. I'm perfect weight and don't smoke or drink. So i'm curious as to what these little flutters are? Maybe they aren't my heart? I've checked my pulse STRAIGHT after (im as quick as i can) and it's just normal..

Anyway - advice?

Sounds like palpitations. I always get them and a million times more when I am anxious. I had a 24 hour monitor and was told they're benign and I'm just more aware. I bet that's all yours are.

Thank you for your reply. I'm hoping so - but i'm not letting myself get worked up over them. My heart rate is normal, my breathing is normal. But i just seem to get them randomly when i sit up or lay down. Not every time, just some times. I've only started noticing them.

I get flutters, skips, etc!  (all anxiety related) - I HAD been checked out.   I get where I feel a tickle in my throat and have to cough, or I feel my heart fluttering, or I feel it go boom-boom- (skip) - BOOM!   And I DO feel this in my pulse too.   When I get horrible flutters either I feel NO pulse at all or my heart is going real fast (my mom has the same thing - she too was checked out and it DID it right when she was having the test!  Anxiety...)

I just created a similar topic! I had an episode tonight where my heart suddenly started racing and the beats were shallow. My chest felt like it was buzzing and my pulse in my neck was fast and shallow...not like having just ran five miles with hard beats. They were shallow flutters.  Scared me...a lot. Now, I sit here on anxiety zone searching for answers or relief, I guess.  My episode stopped after 10-15 consecutive seconds. I had to stand up, bend over, and cough really hard.  :( Not fun.
