What causes fluttering sensations in the stomach while sitting or exhaling?
My upper stomach while sitting. Don't notice while standing. It appears worse when I breath out. Does not hurt just flutters
I would recommend as follows:
Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!
Your symptoms are not typical of any cardiac disorders.
Gastro-esophageal reflux could mimic such clinical situation. In such case the flutter would be exacerbated by bending over. Is this your case?
Coming to this point, I would first recommend trying an antiacid or PPI (omeprazole, pantoprazole, etc.).
Anxiety could also trigger this clinical situation.
Anyway, there is nothing to worry about!
If this feeling persists, I recommend consulting with your attending physician for a careful physical exam and some tests:
- complete blood count
- thyroid hormone levels
- fasting glucose
- blood electrolytes
- a resting ECG.
Hope you will find this answer helpful!
