Hello, Are heart flutters during very strenuous exercise dangerous? I've been checked out by a cardio but no stress test before. Thx

Perhaps... Feeling your heart beat fast during exercise is normal, but the term "flutters" would imply some abnormality. A stress echocardiogram will help clear up what's going on with your heart during exercise, and could be helpful if you're embarking on an intensive exercise program.
Heart flutters. Possibly. This requires monitoring, Keep a diary. Perhaps a Holter monitor will be valuable. A stress test may help, too, although you are young. Avoid caffeine and energy drinks.

Yes. Fluttering sensations in the chest are caused by skipped heart beats or rapid heartbeats. Young people with no heart disease can often experience palpitations. Sometimes they are brought on by anxiety, fatigue, caffeine and cough and cold medicines. Beta blockers are sometimes prescribed if the palpitations are annoying or very frequent.
