I'm having fluttering in the middle of my stomach but upper below my breasts. Is this muscle spasms or my heart? I don't think my hearts near this

I'm having fluttering in the middle of my stomach but upper below my breasts. Is this muscle spasms or my heart?  I don't think my hearts near this

Could be either: Here's what you should do - next time you feel the fluttering, immediately check your pulse at your wrist. If it's regular and seems to be a normal rate (generally 60-100 per minute), it's not your heart. If it's irregular or really fast (generally >150) during the fluttering, it is your heart. You may need to try this several times over several days to be sure you've really got it down. ...Read more

But when muscles spasm, the act of spasm can cause irritation, swelling, and more spasm. When you stretch, slowly, but holding a stretch for at least 5 minutes, the muscle has a chance to relax, and stop the vicious cycle. It can take 3-4 days of consistent stretching but it will help. ...Read more
