Fluttering sensation in the upper abdomen. Could this be heart related or stress?

I have been having quick flutterring sensations in the center of my upper abdomon (especially at night when I am sitting in a chair watching t.v or reading.) This has all come on in the last two weeks, and I thought maybe it was from stress or nerves, but now at almost 60 years old, I wonder if it could be heart related? What could be causing this?
