Woke up, went outside for a smoke, felt heart flutters and then fainted. Went to doc and EKG is normal. Could the issue be head related?

Woke up, went outside for a smoke, felt heart flutters and then fainted. Went to doc and EKG is normal. Could the issue be head related?

Probably not: Fainting is an important symptom. To be head related, it would have to be a seizure, and this is very unlikely based on what u describe. Because u had a fluttering sensation first, it implies that u fainted due to a heart issue. Most common problem would be brief atrial fibrillation, but u r quite young for that. I would do a holter monitor on you to track your heart rate through the day. ...Read more

Rapid flutter feeling (like heartbeat )in back flank area on right side (backside). It is more rapid and strong than the heartbeat. Comes and goes. ?

Muscle: this appears to be an irritable muscle causing twitching. If it is a pulsation from a large artery like the aorta, the sensations would be synchronous with your pulse which you can check at your wrist,neck or in front of your ear. I suspect that this will eventually resolve on its own. See your physician if you have any further concerns. ...Read more
