Usually normal: Everyone occasionally feels the heart do a flipflop in the chest. This is a minor glitch in the rhythm. If it takes your breath away or you get woozy orpass out, a phyisican's office visit is in order. There are a host of causes ranging from the trivial to the deadly. Otherwise, if this happens more than 5 times a minute, lay off the caffeine for a week and if it's still flopping, see your doc.
