While it can be a benign gastroduodenitis, you must not miss a more serious diagnosis, like pancreatitis, or a duodenal ulcer penetrating into the head of the pancreas. See your physician. ...Read more

My left breast just started twitching um muscle spasm or something more serious?  I could see the twitching

Probably not serious: This is likely a fasciculation, localized muscle twitching which is usually not serious, esp. if it happens rarely. It can be related to deficiencies of calcium, potassium and esp. magnesium, so supplementing with magnesium, esp. as mag. taurate or glycinate is worth considering- see http://drcarolyndean.com/magnesium_miracle/ Stress may also contribute to fasciculations. ...Read more

It just felt like a painless muscle spasm behind my left breast.  It lasted just a second but set off panic.  Possibly anything dangerous?

If you can find a quiet place - do so. Breath in slowly ; deeply through your nostrils. Fill your lungs with air (but not to the point of discomfort). Hold for a count of five then slowly begin to exhale through an open mouth. Repeat. ...Read more

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
