Hallo Adel
Please ask your doctor to do an ECG - you may have a heart arrhythmia. This is an abnormal transmission of the electrical impulses causing fluttering of the heart muscle. This can be totally harmless or very dangerous depending on the type of arrhythmia. It can be caused by stimulants like caffein, certain medications, damage to the heart muscle, a leaking valve or stress.
