Strange feeling around heart area.
4 Replies
fibromite.u.k. - December 10

Hi, I have been having a strange feeling around my heart occasionally for some time. It is always when I am resting either in bed or just sitting watching T.V. etc. It is hard to explain, but is kind of like a sort of fluttering that goes on for just a few seconds and then goes away. However, in bed the other night, it seemed more pronounced that ever before and went on longer (probably about 10 seconds). Then I felt a really strong thump of a heartbeat and it all felt normal again. I haven't really been concerned about it before, but that one was such a strong feeling that I am a bit concerned over what it is. Have any of you experienced this or know what it can be?

I too have experienced this. It happens on average about 3 times a week or so. I've never really thought anything of it.

Yes, I have had this. It was diagnosed as Atrial Fibrillation, and I had to wear heart monitors many times. They are just a nuisance but give the Dr. a good reading as to when the heart does jump. I was put on coumadin for a couple of years, and have just Come Off It believe it or not. I think the Dr. was too fast at prescribing in the first place, and I think I did get that out of him Bugger.....!

yep, I've been getting that fluttering and the heavy feeling thump for years. I have noticed it more when I've been stressed out more than usual. At first it worried me, it started by in my early 30's and the doctors really never thought much of it. Being a young woman, they tend to think, you're too young for a heart attack, or whatever. Obviously, this thinking is very flawed!! However, I don't really worry about it anymore. I figure if it was a heart problem, I would have had a heart attack by now, after 20 years. It is good to know that I'm not the only one that experiences this.
