    Hi Jayne

    Yes, I do. Not all the time and at no particular time of day. Sometimes I can go weeks without that sensation. I have heard of other people who have this too.

    Hi Jayne

    I also get this fluttery feeling occasionally, feels quite weird, I thought it could be because I was feeling a little anxious?  I also don't like tight clothing as its so uncomfortable around the diaphram area, which seems to make my breathing worse.  I am beginning to realise that having bronchiectasis causes all sorts of strange things to happen to the body.  Its good you have had ecg's which shows all ok.  Because a family member had heart block,  I did end up having a 24hr ecg attached to check my heart over a period of time.  Again this was fine.  I wish you well.

    Yes me too.  A few quick beats every now and then, I also had this checked and was told as long as it doesn't go on continuously for a long time it is ok, I also get what seems like a missed beat, this is called ectopic heart beat and is apparently very common and no problem.
