My friend recently was asking me about this. She felt like bubbles feeling. I think its like a little muscle twitch thing that occurs in the chest area muscle. Like an eye twitch if you ever experienced that. Id say try eating foods with magnesium in it. Idk if its stress related or just bum luck of a muscle twitching. You can always ask a dr to clear if its something else.

Re: butterfly in the chest, like if your spirit leaves you for a second

I think I may know what you are feeling. To me it's almost like a breathlessness feeling then a jolt. I've been told it is all part of my anxiety. When I get this feeling it's usually when I get my worse anxiety/panic that affects my breathing to the point of hyperventilating. When this happens it's scary and I have to try and distract myself with anything from using the treadmill to listening to nature sounds..

Re: butterfly in the chest, like if your spirit leaves you for a second

Very sorry to hear your discomfort. I am not trying to diagnose you. Please let me ease your mind in telling you that what you describe sound like sensations from PVC's and/or PAC's. They are harmless premature beats that can happen for no reason or when you are tired, stressed, over caffeinated, etc... If you are really worried get them checked out by your PC who will probably order a Holter/Event monitor. You will be fine!!! Don't worry about them
