I'm getting a vibration coming from my heart. It feels like a cell phone is in my chest vibrating. Is this anything to worry about?

"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,

Be a questioning patient. Talk to your doctor and ask questions. Studies show that patients who ask the most questions, and are most assertive, get the best results. Be vigilant and speak up!"
