Fluttering heart, mild chest pain, EKG normal. Pain due to pleurisy, would clear up itself. Still paining. Reasons ?

Last month i went to the hospital. My heart was fluttering and i had mild pain in center of chest . they did ekg and blood work. it came back normal then they did a scan on my chest with dye and they said that was normal. He said the pain may be caused by pleurisy . and he gave me pain pills and told me to follow up with my family doc. Family doc said the pleurisy would clear up on it s own without extra meds. problem is my heart is still fluttering. sometimes i can go days without it doing it but today i went to the store and after walking across the parking lot my heart was really fluttering. it did it off and on the whole time i was shopping. no pain just fluttering. Very unsettling feeling. What could be causing it? i ve cut the coffee down to a cup in the morning is that still to much? Do i need to cut it out completely? I also quit smoking a year ago and now i m trying to get off the nicotine lozenges. could that also be causing the flutters?

And if the ECG and ECHO normal and you are still having symptoms you have to under go Treadmill test once for that you meet once cardiologist.

Some times acidity can cause these symptoms. So stop smoking and avoid coffee and spicy foods and free from stress.
