Palpitation Sx: Palpitations are an awareness of extra heartbeats which most of us have. The sensation can be single or multiple and can sometimes last minutes. Different people may feel other symptoms along with them such as dizzy, lightheaded or short of breath. The palpitations are almost always atrial or ventricular premature beats.

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
Was in school &got brief tightness on lower section of skull. Neck fluttered right underneath it. No pain, but scared it's a tumor/aneurysm. I'm 18 :(?
Was in class when I got this weird twitching/spasm in the left base of neck and a bit up skull (small area). It fluttered & tightened for a sec? Why?
Yesterday i had a heart flutter followed by a small pain in the left side of my neck and left hand. Is this something of concern?
Probably not: It sounds like this was a brief symptom. If so, it is unlikely to be dangerous. Flutters and pains that last a few seconds or less are generally not worrisome. You might have had an "extra heartbeat" or two (pvc or pac). This could cause the symptoms you mentioned in your neck and hand as well. Caffeine or other stimulants can provoke this type of symptom. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
