My guess is that it is your medication. I was taking Nadol for my SVT which help, however, I to started suffering from a strange (yes vibrating cell phone is a good description) sensation in the center of my chest. This what I termed extra rapid heart beats would actually chock and take my breath away. My thought was that I developed a second irregular heart rate, however after wearing a 30 day monitor, and being told that nothing unsual was found, I actually weaned myself off the medication and this second strange sensation did eventually go away.
See if your cardiologist can change your medication.

Re: vibrating sensation in chest

Oh my gosh, I am having the same thing. I take Propranolol. I couldn't figure out what is making the bed vibrate and yes just like a cell phone vibration and it's me that's vibrating! My guess is medication also. It's not my heart that feels like it is vibrating but my whole body and now it has moved down to my pelvic area. Really strange. Doesn't hurt or anything or bother heart rhythem. If it isn't one side effect its another huh?

Re: vibrating sensation in chest

I have had similar "sensations". Not quite a "vibration" but a strange feeling for a few seconds which creates a great deal of fear for me. Sends chills throughout my whole body when it happens, for just an instant. I think the chills are fear at least, because I too have a history of anxiety/panic and it often revolves around paranoia that something is "wrong" with my heart or something. I don't know if we are experiencing the same thing or not, sometimes I think it's A) heart, related to meds B) anxiety (palpitation perhaps) or C) something passing along my esophagus (gas/food/liquid)....but who knows.

Re: vibrating sensation in chest

hi, it sounds real familiar. I also am a vibronaught. I went to the neurologist and he sent me the the shrink. the shrink sent me back to the neurologist.to make a long story short, the shrink put me on busprine twice a day and ativan at night. when i wake up for from a nap or sleep at night, I still feel my body vibrating. the mad twitching has stopped. It was all over my body.it started with my index finger going off all the time. now it 98% stopped. I feel better than I have in ages. I really think anxiety is the greater part of it. I am afraid of going off the ativan and have all the twitching come back. I know I am obsessive compulsive. however not severe though.the vibrating was horrible. Just recently, my brother told me that his legs were vibrating also. he also lives with lots of stress and is a PHD botanist. The muscle twitching was in my legs, eyes, even tongue. I only get the occasional twitch now. I did not want to admit to anxiety, but the proof may be in the pudding. hope you are better.

Yes, I have had the most subtle of body tremors, when laying down, since I went into permanent AF. I first thought they were small earth quakes or the dog banging around under the bed. Damndest thing!

I think they are part of the desease -- body's electrical system gone all to hell. Yeah, that's it.

Re: vibrating sensation in chest

Atrial Fibrillation .... sorry.

Hap, I read your account and what I discribe is nothing like what you are experiencing. My body tremors are so subtle you think it is caused by external means.

Best to you.

Jack

Re: vibrating sensation in chest

Yes "vibrating phone" -- perfect analogy.
I once researched this symptom but couldn't find any literature on it?
