Fluttering in chest
Apr 18, 2007
Hello. I am 17 weeks pregnant with my third child and off all medications for anxiety (most recently Prozac and Xanax). Lately I have been noticing a strange sensation in my upper chest area--it's hard to say whether it feels heart-related or not. What I do know is that it makes me have to cough and once I do, the sensation passes. It feels like a fluttering, that is the best way I can describe it. My Dad has PVC's and he describes them the same way, so I'm guessing that this may be what I'm feeling but I haven't been able to find anyone else who describes it the same way, particularly that feeling of needing to cough or clear my throat. I'm wondering if it is attributable to anxiety, being that I am not on any meds right now. I seem to have some type of physical anxiety symptoms when I am not taking medication. Anyone have that same feeling--like you need to cough and once you do, the feeling passes? Any ideas what it could be? Pregnancy related or anxiety or a combo of both?
