    hi roy47530 If you are still concerned you can read about

    ectopic heart beats on BHF British heart foundation and you could get your doctor

    to refer you to have a 24 holter to wear

    as it will record your heart its not intrusive.

    I had ectopic beats and they were benign

    of no significance,

    from my holter test .My doctor was not concerned either but i think its worth checking out .I was told they are quite common certain things caffeine drinks

    alchohol etc smoking ,the heart electrical

    system is very sophisticated i was told by my GP.

    But still worth getting a check-up which is

    helpful.Good Health
