Many causes: The causes of heart fluttering (pslpitations) are many. They may be caused from abnormal rhythms in the heart or may be even normal variants. Sometimes they may be due to atrial or ventricular premature beats (extra beats) which are usually benign. Work up with a holter or event monitor may be helpful.
