Many women have this vibrating or fluttering sensation, and no one seems to really know what it is. Some doctors guess that it comes from spasms of the tiny muscles surrounding your nipple. Since it's your left breast, you should rule out heart issues. Other than that - I can tell you you've got lots of company! Good luck - PJH
