M Glenn, you probably have what classically happens to young medical students who begin reading about diseases. They imagine they have everything. You become more sensitive to every possible clue, and it's scary. One of the most common things to start noticing is heart fluttering. We all have these at times. It's actually good that your heart can handle them! Stop worrying, keep playing.
