I am 29 years of age and over the past 18 months I have began to notice from time to time I would get a flutter in my chest either when excercising or resting. 7 months ago I went to the ER with a chest pain and had some flutters during the day. The did and ECG, Blood tests and chest x ray and found nothing wrong. I try to keep fit and my normal heart rate is 72bpm and when pushing myself during excercise is 175-180bpm. I have read recently that this can be caused by anxiety and that I am bringing it on myself by thinking about it. Has anyone else suffered from this or can anyone tell me should I be more concerned?
hey, i have the flutters to mine are pac, have you went to a cardio dr and wore a heart montor, it can tell them whats going on , you can also wear one for 30 days and try catch it on there . good luck. dont worry to much about it until you have it checked out pvc/pac are harmless just very scarey

I have felt something like a flutter every now and then. But for the past three days I have been with this fluttering feeling from morning till night. I feel like if I cough it will make it stop. I also get a little light headed I have had so many tests done and no doctor seems to find anything seriously wrong. I do take toprol xl for high blood pressure and clonazipam for anxiety. I'm so tired of feeling sick.
