Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs)
See if you can have your doctor hook you up on a 30 day monitor. Then you can see what is going on when you feel the fluttering. You could also do a 24 or 48 hour holiter monitor if it happens every day.

Actually, that's a good idea. I had short runs of PSVT, had me scared. Never showed on the Holter Monitors, so they did Event Monitoring. When it occurred, and I called it in, I was expecting the worst, but the boredom of the technician saying "You had a little PSVT there" with no instructions to immediately go to a hospital was a relief. LOL.
The biggest problem with the 30 day monitoring is the longterm exposure to the adhesive patches. Those can cause skin reactions.
