Fluttering in solar plexus, severe cold, recurring condition. Heart related condition?

Hi there, throughout my life, since childhood really, I have periodically experienced a fluttering sensation in my solar plexus which is painless but makes me want to cough . i have had a bad cold in recent days and this sensation has happened on two consecutive days. Is this anything to worry about as i ve always presumed that it s something to do with my heart .

Dear patient

Some patients do experience symptoms like yours related to abnormal rhythms of the heartbso I think that possibility should be ruled out. If episodes occur on a daily basis a Holter monitor could catch them if truly an arrhthmia is present; if mores sporadic then an event monitor would be the choice
