Fluttering is usually muscle.

Have your doctor examine this.

Galllbladder is in this area, but this would be painful.

I would have thyroid levels and magnesium levels checked, along with electrolytes and routine labs, and a physical exam.

Most times this is muscle/spinal strain.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
