  • I don't know about the holes in your heart and what role that may play in your heart acting funny. I am 23, and my heart is completely normal and healthy but I experience racing and flutters and pains around my period. Is it at any particular time of the month? Another suggestion may be anxiety, which you may feel without knowing it (or feeling anxious)

  • get cbc blood test which include magnesium test. often times taking magnesium can calm down (normalize) the heart.

  • Mostly an anxiety and nothing else.
