When I exhale all the way and hold, there is a slight quiver or vibration in my chest. It could be muscle related but my my heart? There is no pain and just recently started happening daily ever since my allergies kicked in.
Hi and welcome to the forum! I am glad that I can help you.
You want to know the cause of the symptoms that you experience.
When people exhale the diaphragm starts to contract in order to help the inhalation. When individuals exhale and hold their breath, the diaphragm quivers ready to contract and move downwards in order to draw air in the lungs. Also, when individuals hold their breath, the heart rate lowers a bit.
According to the data that you described, it is not likely that you experience any medical condition. If you experience other symptoms such as shortness of breath, coughing, chest pain or general lividity of the skin, see a pulmonologist.
