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.

I am 41 years old and had a stress test yesterday. Went 19 minutes on the treadmill and a minute or two after she slowed the treadmill down I had pvc. She said it was the only one on the test. I read that recovery pvcs are the ones you worry about. Otherwise the rest of the test was normal. Echo shows normal except mild thickening of the trileaflet aortic valve. Had several holiter done. First 48 hour showed 100 pvcs and a couple look to be r on t which concerns me. Second 48 hour showed 6 pvcs. Third 24 hour showed 1 pvcs. Some of the pvcs are multifocal. Also had a echo stress test that was normal and 21 day monitor that recorded a couple pvcs and pacs. Had a 30 day moniter where I would start having episodes of pacs that would last for up to 3 hours and for two hours estraight I would have a pac every couple of seconds which felt terrible. I had three or four days on the 30 day monitor this happened and it’s been over a year and have not had a episode since. Still three different ep doctors tell me I have nothing to worry about and that my heart is normal. i Work out regularly and will randomly feel a pvc during exercise and recovery. Should I be concerned and what should I do being that the eps don’t take me seriously
Your situation is completely different from loved1. She was upper 40s you are 28. She has family history you do not. If you had a ct calcium scan and it was fine it is unlikely you have any significant blockage. I think you are reading her story and scaring yourself but you are comparing apples to oranges. If you haven’t talked to a cardiologist you need to to ease your mind.
Being a 28 year old woman with no family history of heart disease the chances of your chest pains being heart related would be very rare. Chest pain can come from many other causes. The fluttering is probably ectopic heart beats either pvcs or pacs and probably caused by your anxiety over the chest pain and nothing to worry about if it is. However it is always best to get check out just in case and it will help ease your anxiety. You might see about getting a stress test or echo stress test. I doubt any doctor is going to do a invasive procedure like a angiogram at your age and probability of having heart disease. Hope this helps.
Afib can cause blood clots to form not pacs. Almost everyone gets pacs from time to time and they are benign. Almost everyone gets pvcs from time to time and they are usually benign unless there is a structural problem with the heart, heart disease, heart failure, or a genetic disease. Then they become a little more significant as they can lead to vtac or vfib.
