What causes chest vibrations?

Hi, I'm getting a vibration in the right of my chest. My wife put her hand in the area and could apparently feel a light vibration. Any idea what it might be? I am still very overweight, but have lost 60 pounds in the last year and am doing 2 hour workouts at the Gym, 4 times a week. Height 5' 8", weight 250lbs, Blood Pressure, Cholestrol is all fine.

Respected user, hi I evaluated your query thoroughly .
@ As per the narration certain details are lacking as - type of vibration ,
frequency, intensity , duration , exact location in right chest , associated
noticing anything abnormal around heart region, breathing pattern
& not told whether you are also feeling same or only your wife , may be
her hand is vibrating in some stress & you get the penalty !

@ With this information , I will regard this as possible muscular twitching
may be due to heavy work out or else reason , giving light vibration
feeling
@ Recommendations for you at present
- avoid heavy work out for 2-3 days
- maintain your hydration
- keep BP , blood sugar under control
- avoid stress / anxiety
- have regular sound sleep of 6-7 hours
- avoid weight lifting as well
- consult later doctor if persist after 24 hours ( may require soft tissue
sonography or EMG NCV study for the same )
Hope this clears your query .
