Can a flutter feeling in the chest ever be not heart-related?
« on: February 16, 2010, 05:37:29 PM »
Can a flutter feeling in the chest ever be muscular or soemthing else benign and not heart-related?

I was/am a big heart worrier so I saw a cardiologist a few months ago and had a 48 hour halter monitor and was told there was nothing wrong with my heart. I did not have any further testing like an echo.

The other day I suddenly felt a flutter in my chest for just a few seconds. I felt find otherwise- no pain, no shortness of breath, nothing. This is the only time I have felt this but it is freaking me out.

Could this just have been muscular? Can I really have developed an arrythmia or something in the last few months? Do I need further testing done on my heart? HELP!

I get the "flutters" when I'm anxious. Even though I realize that it is just a reaction to stress, it still scares me. If your doc cleared you, then I wouldn't worry.

YES! Most definitely! I was having some worries for some time now about this fluttery feeling I was feeling the best way I can describe it is like when you are running really fast sometimes and your leg kinda twitches well that was the feeling I was having in my chest and to beat it all on the left side!!! Is that how you are feeling too....I think it would be just chest muscle twitches....I have had so many EKG's and bloodwork and all that.

I've had flutters on and off for more than 25 years. They are harmless.

everybody gets flutters but ppl like us are more aware of every blip in out bodies so notice them more. my partner told me he gets them when hes laying in bed at night he over breathes (which can cause them). Ive had a 24 hour holter and 3 ecgs, all ok and i also get them.
