Weird vibrations in my chest
Hi there,

Over the last 3 days I have this funny vibration on the left of my chest...it feels almost like a muscle movement but it does give me a bit of a jolt for breath...not intense though. There is no pain either and I''ve checked my heart rate when it happens and it stays constant, not missing a beat..

What can it be...?

Your symptoms can be due to muscle fatigue of the intercostal muscles and muscles of the anterior chest wall. If you are concerned and you do have risk factors for myocardial disease, like for instance diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and a family history, you should consult your doctor.
