2 questions. I've been having these fluttering spasms under my right breast bone (rib cage area) not painful, just obnoxious... I'm also about 6 weeks pregnant, could this be some crazy symptom? Lastly, I was spotting a little yesterday it was brownish

I agree,: The fluttering sensations are probably just a crazy symptom, the spotting could come from implantation, although I typically see that around 8 - 9 weeks of gestation. You may want to refrain from heavy physical stress until the spotting has subsided. ...Read more

Is a flutter sensation in chest common in 19 yr old. I get them sometimes at rest sometimes at exercise. It doesn't happen often. It happens rarely?

See your doctor: No, a flutter sensation in your chest isn't common. It could be that your heart is having an arrhythmia, or abnormal heartbeat. Quite often, arrhythmias are benign and nothing to worry about, but some are more concerning. Please see your primary care doctor ASAP and she/he will do an exam, EKG, and further work up if needed. Be well! ...Read more

Palpitations: Palpitations can be benign (simple skipped or extra beats) or can be a symptom of a more serious condition such as an SVT (supraventicular tachycardia).

Havng a fluttering sensation in upper chest 1 or 2 tyms a day. No pain or diziness Just makes little worry. Hve been observing this since 1 month.

Fluttering: I would not worry. If it only lasts a few seconds and is not associated with pain, pressure in your chest, difficulty breathing, sweating, nausea or vomiting it could simply be some abnormal beats which happens. Mention it to your GP and they will check an ECG. Http://www. Webmd. Com/heart-disease/guide/what-causes-heart-palpitations#1 ...Read more

Palpitations may be mistaken a spasm of your esophagus. ...Read more

Have a flutter in my chest has become more and more frequent with age. Is it serious? The flutter started when I was about 6 I am now 35 it happens frequently when I am very active. Sometimes if I work out, certain exercises cause the sensation when I am

There: There are a number of reasons you might be feeling a fluttering sensation in your chest. It is possible that with exercise your normal heart beat becomes stronger and you are then able to feel it even though it is a normal heart rhythm.

It is also possible that you have an arrhythmia, or irregular heart beat. There are many types of arrhythmias and the only way to know for certain is to have an ECG taken when you are feeling the fluttering. Sometimes this is best done by wearing a holter monitor, or an ECG that you wear continuously for a day or longer. The heart rhythm is then analyzed and your doctor could then determine what type of heart rhythm changes you might have.

The most common types of arrhythmias are single skipped beats and are called premature atrial contractions (pacs) or premature ventricular contractions (pvcs). These are benign and are not dangerous or worrisome. If your heart seems to race continuously for seconds to minutes or longer, you might have a more serious arrhythmia that may or may not require further treatment.

If at any time you feel the fluttering and you feel like you might faint, or you cannot breathe well, or you have chest pains, you should call your doctor immediately. ...Read more

Nerve issue: In the absence of pain, swelling, limitation of motion and respiratory difficulties, most likely you have a localized problem with a small sensory nerve in the skin. At any rate if the symptoms persist for 4 to 6 weeks without resolution, you should get a medical examination. ...Read more

It: It sounds as if you were experiencing heart palpitations, which some have described as "skipping a beat", "fluttering", or "beating too hard or too fast". They can occur during activity or even when sitting still or lying down. Palpitations are very common. They usually aren't serious or harmful, but they can be bothersome. In some patients, certain events trigger these palpitations, such as strong emotions, vigorous physical activity, medicines, stimulants (such as coffee). Some palpitations are symptoms of arrhythmias. Arrhythmias are problems with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat. Some arrhythmias are signs of heart conditions, such as heart attack, heart failure, heart valve disease, or heart muscle disease. However, less than half of the people who have palpitations have arrhythmias.

If you can ascribe these incidents with some factor, avoid those factors, such as caffeinated coffee or soft drinks. If they are associated with pain or shortness of breath, please see your doctor immediately. If they become more prolonged or frequent (daily occurrence), then wearing a heart monitor (sometimes called a holter monitor), which captures all heart beats in a period of time, can be used to study the nature of the palpitations. ...Read more

When lying on stomach and deep inhale I feel a flutter in my chest. No other symptoms and it's the only time I really notice this sensation.?

When lying on stomach and deep inhale I feel a flutter in my chest. No other symptoms and it's the only time I really notice this sensation.?

See below: Generally, a sensation of fluttering in the chest, only when lying on your stomach and taking a deep breath, is unlikely to be caused by a significant heart problem unless you are having the same symptoms at other times of the day or with exercise. Normal people can have brief episodes of arrhythmia, called SVT, in which the heart can suddenly speed up and beat very quickly>

I have sinus drainage, a deep tickle in my chest with coughing sometimes, and a weird flutter like sensation in upper chest or throat that causes me to cough. Is this bronchitis or something else?

Viral: Most likely this is a viral upper respiratory tract infection with some irritation of the throat and windpipe (trachea). This causes a unproductive cough that can be annoying. If your symptoms are otherwise very mild with no build up of mucus in the bronchial tubes, it's ok to take a cough suppressant syrup containing dextromethorphan. Your symptoms should resolve in a few days. If they don't, see M ...Read more
