Fluttering below rib cage, intermittent, not painful. History of cardiomyopathy

I am a 39 y/o female, not pregnant. For the previous two weeks I have been getting a fluttering feeling under my left lower rib cage. It is inermittent, and lasts maybe 10 seconds when it happens. It is not painful, and does not cause any other symptoms. It just feels wierd . I had a cardiomyopathy during my last pregnancy two years ago, but all was resolved on echo 6 months after pregnancy. Any thoughts...

Hello .. Thanks for writing us

You sufferred from peripartum cardiomyopathy that is reversible in around 33% case, you were lucky that you are normal now.

This flutterring below rib cage looks like non cardiac but to be doubly sure you get one ECG done whenever you are having symptom or one Holter monitoring that records 24 hrs ECG recording

Get back with report , I will be happy to answer
