What causes a fluttery feeling in gastrointestinal track?

I have been experiencing a fluttery feeling in my gastrointestinal track. It can be in my throat, chest or in my abdominal area. It seems to occur in the late afternoon, evening and when I am trying to sleep at night. I have not changed medications, caffeine intake or anything else that I could think might create this sensation. Any thoughts?

Is it palpitations? Possible causes for fluttering sensation is
1. Anxiety.
2. Hypocalcemia, hypokalemia.
3. Muscle twitch or spasm
4. Anemia.
5. Hyperthyroidism etcetera.
Avoid spicy food and alcohol. Avoid smoking and caffeine drinks. Do yoga and meditation, if symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
