I have just started having a weird feeling in mu upper stomach and lower chest. I have had skipped beats and palps for several years. Yesterday I felt very weak and I kept getting a weird butterfly feeling. I know this sounds crazy but it is almost like the feeling wen you are on a roller coaster. I took a xanax last night and I slept okay but the feeling came back today. Has anyone had this feeling before?
Yes, I have. It sure does feel like fluttering butterflies. Mine causes me to sort of cough, and the tummy dropping feels, like you said, a rapid decent in an elevator. I have been told it can be due to gas bubbles, and true, when I am bloated or just had a glass of water, I will notice it more. Also, anxiety can cause these exact feelings, again, I have high anxiety, and when in this mode, they act up.
I have never been diagnosed with anxiety but I feel like I have it. The docter gave me xanax for these times and it helps so I think I have it. I wish I knew what brought it on because I have never been one to have stress or let anything bother me. I wish I had answers. I will continue praying untill I do. Any information is appreciated. Thanks.
