Fluttering heart, diagnosed COPD, done echo and stress test normal. Heart problem?

I had about a week or so that my heart would feel like it was fluttering, then like it thumped or turned over. I would get weak a lot. I will be 73 in March, but am still active and in fairly good condition except for problems with my lungs. They have it classified as COPD. I refuse to believe I have COPD. My echo and my stress test were both normal. I still have some fluttering at times but not as badly. What could it be? Could by heart somehow have gotten out of rhythm?

Hi, it appears to be the gastric hyperacidity. When there is gastric irritation, due to flatulance one may feel like heart weakness. As you are a COPD patient you may have the possibility of tachycardia. But as the tests are negative, it is completely excluded.
I advise you to avoid spices, junk foods, and oily foods. Thank you.
