In brief: Proven, or felt?

Twitching of the intercostal muscles(muscles between the ribs)can feel like an irregular heart beat;if early beats (PACs or PVCs) were not seen on EKG or heart monitor,then a 24hour Holter monitor should record any that occur (mark down times)& look for signs of many beats in a row(SVT = supraventricular tachycardia).
Decongestants,electrolytes,thyroid or lung disease can cause, sometimes all OK.
