Is it normal to get heart flutters with gas? I often feel flutters

Customer Question

Is it normal to get heart flutters with gas? I often feel flutters in my heart that scare me, and the fluttering is relived when I burp. The feeling is very strange and I'm wondering if I should get my heart checked or if this is simply due to gas.

This is pretty common and is most likely normal However, a holter monitor is needed to prove that this isn't some type of arrhythmia
