Muscle Fasciculations Under Left Breast

Hello for the past 7 days I have been experiencing muscle fasciculations under my left breast. At first I was getting them in my right shoulder as well but that went away after 2 days. However the sensations in the 2 different locations feel exactly the same There is absolutely no pain but the strange pulsing or fluttery feeling has me concerned because they have continued for so many days in a row. The frequency varies from every few minutes to once every 8 hours. At first I was worried that it was related to my heart b/c of the location but my pulse remains steady and regular while these erratic sensations occur. I get muscle fasciculations pretty regularly in other parts of my body but they are always really random and never persist for days at a time. Do you know what is causing this and should I be concerned?

Thank You,
N

I would visit your doctor to examine you. They may be another manifestation of your tendency to have fasciculations elsewhere. Err on the safe side

I have been sufferring pain in various parts of my body especially on my right upper shoulder and all around the midrif. I have a nine mm gallstone in my gallbladder. Maybe you should check ( ulta-sound) your gallbladder  with your doctor, you may have gallstones. Inflamation (inflammation) of the gall-bladder causes pain all over the midriff and it is very uncomfortable including the area you indicated just below the heart. Or it could be stomach ulcers.
