Dear Ask The Doctor:
My heart has been fluttering or feeling lile its rolling all day it doesnt hurt but is very uncomfortable
Answer:Fluttering heart beats usually indicate a problem with the heart rythym and are called palpitations. There ae various causes of the same like for example too fast or too slow heart beats, irregular heart beats (arrythymias) , panic/anxiety attacks, thyroid issues like hyperthyroidism, low blood hemoglobin : Anemia etc. These need to be evaluated and you need to consult your GP for a examination and tests like ECG, blood pressure, thyroid function and a complete blood count.
