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

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
