For about 3 weeks I have had heart flutters of and on till a week ago and then they were constant,I couldn t even go to church Sunday because they wouldn t let up.I rarely ever drink a coke so I don t know what is causing them.No anxiety.It also at times feels like it is taking my breath away.Two times my BP got a little high but heart rate was very good.Can this be dangerous.I do have Premature Ventricular Contractions but when that acts up my heart beats very hard and fast but that is not happening now.Any help would be greatly appreciated. Jennifer-It feels like my heart jumped to my throat and then other times it goes to my throat and then straight down to my stomach and it is gone ,then here comes another one right behind it.I am having them now.It s just the weirdest feeling.I have in the past had palpatations but this feels like nothing I have ever had.Thanks for the web sites and your answer.God Bless. Freedom-I am not really short of breath but the strange feeling moves so fast when it goes to my throat that it almost makes me gasp.There is no pain at all.I do take a med to help pump the blood up to my heart and another med for PVC S and I also have Mitral Valve Prolapse.Thanks for your concern.God Bless.

I have had that feeling before and it was a little scary, but went away. I am not sure what it is, I thought personally it was a little anxiety even though I didn't have anything troubling me at the time. I think it is a good idea that you are getting it checked out, so you will know for sure, being that you have other medical problems as well. It is just best to get checked. Atrial flutter is closely related to another arrhythmia called atrial fibrillation. The two sometimes alternate back and forth. Atrial Flutter Symptoms Some people have no symptoms at all with atrial flutter. Others describe the following symptoms: Palpitations (rapid heartbeat or a pounding sensation in the chest) A "fluttering" or tremor-like feeling in the chest Shortness of breath Anxiety People with underlying heart or lung disease who experience atrial flutter may have these and other, more significant symptoms. Angina pectoris (chest or heart pains) Feeling faint or light-headed Fainting (syncope) When to Seek Medical Care If you experience any of the symptoms of atrial flutter
