Is It Normal To Feel Your Lung Flutter
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient.

I can feel my heart flutter and I can't seem to breathe properly. Does this mean that I have poor lung health?
Not necesserily: Feeling your heart fluttering means that your hearts rhythm is not regular, most likely you are having some kind of atrial arrhythmia (ie atrial fib or flutter). This can be the reason for your respiratory problems rather than your lungs. It may also be a combination of heart and lung disease. You need to see your doctor, to diagnose the cause and discuss all your options for treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

When I am tired, i feel like i'm not getting enough oxygen and my lungs won't expand fully. Is this a normal function?
Yes: It's not unusual for me to see patients who are tired/ not getting much exercise who feel a need to sigh deeply, feeling they can't quite get that deep breath they need to satisfy them. The only two things I have found that help them are more rest and more exercise. There are some stretch receptors in the lungs which i believe are playing a role in this problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
