I've had these weird palpitaion type sensations on and off for the last few years. It feels like my insides, (upper stomach/lower chest and back) are vibrating and twisting slightly. It's not painfull, but quite weird, and can wake me up a few times a night. I think I noticed that it olny does it when I'm sleeping on my back, I usually sleep on my side.

    Yes it happens to me almost every night. Like my chest, back, and abdomen are just throbbing. It's very weird and difficult to try to sleep. I have the head of my bed elevated and I usually sleep on 3 or 4 pillows to elevate even more (not great for your back or neck but sometimes it's the only thing that helps the palpitations). Try sleeping on your right side and elevate the head of your bed and don't eat at least 3 hours before you go to bed.
