Brief Answer:
Not related to cardiac issue.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The vibrating sensations in the breasts is not related to any cardiac issue. This can be due to muscle twitches or a minor nerve stimulations. Wearing too tight undergarments can also cause this.
The most likely and common causes for these vibrations are
1... High levels of stress,anxiety,nervousness or excitement or anger.
2... Consumption of excess of alcohol or caffeine.
3...low levels of calcium,potassium,magnesium etc
4... Low levels of VIT B12
5... Use of medicines like anti asthmatics,anti seizure,weight loss medicines etc
6.. Certain disorders like hyperthyroidism or hypoparathyroidism.

I would advise you to get tested for above mentioned causes,stop alcohol and caffeine,do regular stress buster exercises like deep breathing exercises and yoga and taking good nutritious diet.
If some deficiency comes in your tests,then take those supplements.

Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Ok, I m 23 and this is really getting me down. Here is my list of problems, it s driving me mad. I have had all of these on and off for months now and haven t really had much help from the doctors. - sciatic nerve pain in my right leg - sciatic type pain that travels upward through my abdomen - hot flushes in my left foot - numbness in both thumbs - stabbing pain in some joints - a resting heart rate sometimes of 120 - heart palpitations - sensation of cold water dripping on my legs while I m walking - muscle twitches - tinnitus - dizziness - other sensations in my face or limbs that just don t quite feel right (tingling, pain, numbness, hot or cold) I also went to A&E a few months back because of a very severe pain in my abdomen. I had blood tests (which revealed a higher than usual white cell count, and blood and proteins in my urine) but a normal liver and kidney function. I also had an ultrasound done of my aorta etc which showed nothing really despite the fact the doctor heard a whooshing sound in my abdomen with his stethoscope.

I had gall bladder removal and umbilical hernia repair on June 2nd I am now feeling a mild muscle spasms around my naval. This started approximately two days ago. There was no traumatic incident prior to it (for example, I wasn t lifting anything heavy or doing anything that would possible damage the area). It s not painful, and the sensation resembles what one would feel when the eye lid twitches or another mild involuntary muscle twitch. Is this normal? Is it a sign that the stitches are healing inside?
