strange heart flutters
hey everyone. For about 7 months, I've been getting these weird heart flutters in my chest randomly.....on average about 4 or 5 times a week. Its not a "vibration" that other people on this forum have described, but where randomly, I'll become conscious of my heart beats because it seems to start fluttering. When it happens, the fluttered beats seem to last only like 3 or 4 seconds....7 at the most. The best way I can describe it is.....when my heart beats normal, its like bump-bump.....bump-bump.....bump-bump....bump-bump. Yet when I feel these weird fluttering palpitations it becomes more chaotic like "bump-bump bump......bump bump-bump"...i become instantly aware when they are happening. Their never painful, and I have never gotten that "tightness" of chest feeling. After the strange flutters stop, my heart goes into fast paced beats (but seemingly normal fast beats) that last about a min and may or may not be caused from the anxiety of the weird fluttering/flip flops. I went to my doctor and he gave me that machine that records heart activities, but it didn't happen the day he gave it to me and its such an inconvenience, I didn't wear it again. I'm 20 btw.
