Palpitations: You're having an unusual awareness of your heartbeat. The medical term for that is palpitations. Cardiologists, and in particular electrophysiologists deal with these problems all the time. The first step is an ekg, and then a wearable monitor to see what specific rhythm problem may be to blame. Good luck!

Palpitations: The symptom you are describing is called palpitations. There are several abnormal heart rhythms that can come and go suddenly (PSVT is one). See you regular doctor and get set up with a heart monitor that records your rhythm. If the palpitations become persistent, or you develop lightheadedness or chest pain go to an emergency department.
I woke up this & my heart has been beating hard and fast, and almost to like a flutter at time. Any type of exertion causes it to beat faster.?
Many reasons: Many times the heart skips or beats irregularly in people who are otherwise normal. So most of the time we don't know. There are certain types of heart rhythm problems which are associated with actual abnormalities and disease in the heart. Examples are thyroid problems, anemia, heart muschle problems, and valve problems.See 1 more doctor answer

PACs or PVCs: Premature atrial or ventricular contractions. Usually benign and may be ignored. Anxiety and caffein can be causes. If frequent and symptomatic, should see a cardiologist.

Fast heart rate: When someone's heart rate is fast (more than 100 beats per minute), it can feel like heart fluttering. It can have different causes from very benign, no needing treatment to life threatening. The term 'atrial flutter' describes an abnormally fast rhythm where the electricity in the upper chamber of the heart goes round and round a large circle.See 2 more doctor answers
Many causes: The feeling of heart fluttering (palpitations) actually may not be related to the heart at all. Palpitations that are related to the heart are usually due to aberrant electrical activity in the heart otherwise known as arrhythmias. There are multiple kinds of arrhythmias, the more common ones are not life-threatening, but need to be evaluated. A heart monitor (holter) is used for this purpose.See 1 more doctor answer
Atrial Flutter: Atrial flutter is a special type of rhythm disorder in which there is an extra pathway in the upper chamber of the heart that cycles and stimulates the lower chambers of the heart. The rate can be quite rapid, or can be more controlled depending on how the lower chambers respond to the extra signals. This condition is treated with medications, cardioversion, and/or ablation of the pathway.See 1 more doctor answer
Heart: First & most important is to find the cause so it can be treated. Consult your pcp for evaluation.
Heart has been fluttering off and on since last night. What could be going on? Should I be concerned?
Hi I've been having this problem for a while now, sometimes my heart will flutter for a few seconds what causes this?
Arrhythmias: Your heart can sometimes have irregular beats. If this bothers you, or you have any other symptoms along with it, you should definitely see your doctor to get an ECG or wear an event monitor. That's really the only way you'll know if these feelings are dangerous or not. Hope this helps!See 1 more doctor answer
