Newbie seeking advice(chest flutter)

Hi all

I gave up and I'm on week 6 now using patches

Doing really well and putting my fag money away every day to treat myself

I've actually lost a little weight as I'm not eating loads and my diet is quite healthy anyway

One thing I've noticed is I'm getting a fluttering sensation in the centre of my chest(no pain)

Not sure if it's wind-related or what.

Anyone else experienced this? I never had it before I quit

    I've had that and put it down to a physical reaction to a crave.

    I don't get it all the time but do notice it when I have a crave or just think about smoking.

  • I've actually got a cold just now(man-flu really)

    I wondered about wind related as it seems to be in the area of where I think the gullet is

    oh also as capitan said could be your body reactin, i been reading on what actually makes us so windy when quiting and your intestines crave shocking what we actually do to our body at a rather expensive price.

    Goodluck ith man flu(Heard its horrible :rolleyes: ) and carry on being smokefree

  • I used to get the same thing when really stressed, if it continues go to the quack, any arm numbness or jaw pain then your toast. :o

  • I got it when I used full strength patches on my previous quits. I don't think my body could take that amount of nicotine. I stepped down and was fine after...I'd go to ur G.P. It may be totally unrelated to quitting and a quick listen to ur chest will set ur worries to rest. Stressing over it will make it worse so try and chillax.

    Hope it resolves itself.

  • Went to see my GP this morning.

    She says it's a missed beat and may be caused by nicotine OD

    I was on the 24hr patches as I work nights and, on my 1st shift, I can be awake from 0800-0730 the following day

    She's advised dropping to 16hr patches and see how it goes.

    It's definitely quit-related as I never had it before I quit so I'm not too concerned but I'll keep an eye on it

    Thanks for all the advice
