For the past few days, whenever I sit down I get these random pulsing sensations directly above my solar plexus. It doesn't hurt, my heart rate or breathing doesn't change, but it's rather strange. It seems like the muscles are just spasming but it only happens when i'm sitting down, when I stand or lay down it doesn't happen at all. When I put my hand on it it feels like the muscles are twitching.

I don't know what's going on, but since it doesn't hurt and only happens when I sit down and at random times, I am reluctant to go see a doctor.

Any ideas?

  • Could be a heart murmur or irregular heart rhythm which apparently alot of people have and nothing to worry about. Wouldn't hurt though to mention this to your Doctor at the next visit. :)Samanthahttp://www.undiagnosedillness.org

  • It's very strange though as today It stopped at around lunch. It hasn't happened for a few hours. And I'm sitting down right now. Maybe it's done.

  • Just made me think as my husband has an irregular heart rhythm and similar to your description and it's not always noticeable, he had it checked and it's random so perhaps could be the same thing. It doesn't hurt him either just feels weird.If it continues maybe ask your Doctor for (I think it's called an ECG)Samanthahttp://www.undiagnosedillness.org
