I had those exact symptoms right before I got my diagnosis. Turned out to be heart palpitations. That's the flip flop feeling you get, and the hard irregular heart beat. An echocardiogram was done, and my diagnosis was Lupus with Libman Sach's Endocarditis (Lupus inflammation of the mitral heart valve).
You definitely need to tell your doctor what you're experiencing. The sooner the better.
Let us know how you make out, okay.
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
