This is a very strange thing that started about 3 weeks ago. I don't know what to do and it is quite embarrassing to even talk about it. All day long I get these "flutters" in my vaginal area that lasts about 6 seconds each time. I can deal with it during the day, but it is causing me not to sleep at night. I have gained about 30 pounds in the past two years. Could this contribute to it? I have a heart condition and want to lose weignt but none of the wait loss companies will take me because of my condition.
Could these flutters be caused by something else? I am becoming claustrophobic because I cannot stand this feeling that is inside and I cannot control it.
Please advise me what I should do. I have not slept and three nights because of this. I really need help. Thank you.
I am not aware of a specific disease that can lead to the symptoms you describe. Perhaps palpitations can lead to the feeling fluttering in the vaginal area.
Heart tests can be considered to evaluate this - including an event or Holter monitor and echocardiogram.
A referral to a gynecologist can be considered for a pelvic exam, as well as discussing the symptoms with your personal physician.
Imaging the pelvic area (i.e. with a CT scan or transvaginal ultrasound) can also be considered.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
