Strange Bubbling/Spasm near heart
« on: August 26, 2014, 03:36:18 PM »
For the pass 2 days I have been have this weird bubbling/spasm/ rumbling type feeling near my heart. At first I just thought it was gas so I took a Gas-X didn't really work. Took a Zantac about an hour ago.....no solution now I'm afraid it's something far worse. It doesn't hurt at all but it's definitely a weird feeling and brings on worry each time. It only lasts about two seconds but happens quite frequently during the course of the day.

Anyone know anything about this or have experienced this? If so, any solutions?

Muscle spasm, acid reflux, heart palpitations all come to mind. Two of those are often the direct result of anxiety.

Although I get palpitations often it feels even weirder. Like, almost the same way your stomach would growl, its doing that near my heart or right under my sternum

I get that too at times. Not every day, but it happens every so often. It's a muscle spasm. Very common, especially with anxiety.

Would taking an aleve or ibuprofen help?

Ugh, muscle spasm (sounds like). I hate those, cuz they feel close to the heart.

I put a hot water bottle on it and it goes away after a bit.

I might have to give that a try. I work at a job where I lift and lift ALL day for about 5 hours so maybe that could be the case

I have reflux and this happens to me. You can still get an echo scan done of your heart to give peace of mind, then when that's all good, ask your doctor what to do next. They'll probably say reflux. Do you ever feel your throat burn, hurt, or feel like there is a lump in there? If so, I'd lean towards reflux even more.

I'd definitely say reflux as well. I've had it for years, and this is one of the most annoying symptoms of it. It is just like the gurgling of my stomach, but right by the heart. No idea what causes it; gas, I'd always assumed. Either way, it's harmless enough :)
