I am 26 year old man , suffering from regular ectopic heart beats. These beats started a year ago , at the beginning , they were used to happen when i m hangover only , then it has became more regular . I don’t have a healthy lifestyle because I party too much , but I m used to practice lot of sports and doctors consider that I m fit . Last June , was the month when their frequency notably increased , and the funny thing is that it was Ramadan ( fasting month ) and I had no alcohol at all which I consider main trigger with anxiety as well ...I have seen 3 cardiologist so far , done 3 echocardiograms ( structure is fine ) , plenty of ECGs all fine and 24h holter that detected 40 ectopic beats . All doctors said that my heart is fine , and I don’t need to worry , but the flutter (flip flop ) feeling that I get from 3 times to 20 times a day make feel miserable , increases my anxiety , which increases the ectopics beats and get me in a vicious circle ! I have seen my main cardiologist recently and explained him that It is driving me crazy , he prescribed me beta blockers ( bisoprolol ) and asked me to use them for a short period , but he was not really happy about it because he thinks I am young for this kind of médecines ...has anyone experienced this ? Have you taken beta blockers ? Did it help ? Are they safe ? Please share your stories with me and advices ! Thank you
