Hi:

"Is this anything to worry about?"

Yes, of course.

Medical rule of thumb, report any bothersome, concerning, troublesome, worrisome, worsening or new symptom(s) to a/your doctor promptly.

In general-only here, a vibration, or buzzing feeling/sensation in the chest/thoracic area warrants checking for possible problems that can involve the heart's electrical conduction system, i.e., irregular heartbeat/arrhythmia or a heart valve. There may/can also be non-cardiac related issues, such as rapid-fire muscle spasms.

ALWAYS be proactive in your health care and treatment. Most important, communicate/interact well with your doctor(s).

Best of luck down the road of life.

Take care,
