Can anaemia cause heart flutters?

Yes anaemia can cause heart flutters (palpitations). The cause is usually due to the heart trying to compensate for low oxygen levels in the body. Anaemia is an abnormally low amount of haemoglobin in the blood, which is the part of blood which carries oxygen. Therefore, low haemoglobin levels lead to low oxygen levels. In response, the heart will often try to increase the amount of blood pumped around the body, to meet the body's demand for oxygen by beating faster. This can cause a high heart rate which can lead to palpitations or heart flutters.

Is heart palpitations the same thing as heart beat flutters?

From what I can understand, and I am no doctor, heart palpitations is the same thing as heart beat flutters. Heart palpitation is the feeling that your heart is racing.

Why does your heart routinely flutter shortly one time during rest in late evenings even though you do not drink coffee?

Heart flutters or the feeling of missed heartbeats (everyone has them, but just doesn't feel it in some cases.) Over-exercising can cause this. There is caffeine in soft drinks and chocolate. Sometimes eating after 8 PM can produce heart flutters because of a chemical in possibly junk food. It would be a good idea to see your doctor and be sure you have no abnormalities of the heart. Don't risk not seeing you doctor. I'm sure you are OK, but your doctor can explain to you how the heart works and why you may be getting those heart flutters. Hormones also can cause heart flutters and young women to perimenopausal women and women in menopause can get these heart flutters or so-called missed heartbeats on quite a regular basis.

Can you feel your heart flutter?

I am a 47 year old woman and 2 years ago I would periodically feel "flutters" in my heart. I had it checked out by a cardiologist and found I had a 95% blockage in a major artery to my heart. If you feel flutters, go to your doctor -- I don't think it's normal.

Will flutters make you gasp or cough a little is that your heart or something to do with your diaphragm?

Cardiac flutters do not generally make you gasp or cough, they are more related to a rapid heartbeat and tachycardia. Congestive heart failure can produce a slight cough. If you are experiencing symptoms that you are concerned about make an appointment with your physician.
