User avatar Dear healthy100,

You can check your pulse at the same time you feel this or if you are a thin person and it is easy to feel the beats of your heart when you put your hand on your chest, you can try and feel your beats at the same time as the fluttering and if this fluttering correlates with the pulse then this is due to heart palpitations.

Thank you very much for using our website and i hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
