I'm a 25 year old 6ft 15st male I've suffered with Ectopic heart beats for about 4 years now, I've had 24 hour 48 hour and 7 day ECGS and told everything is normal and it's just ectopics it just feels awful when they happen. Lately it has just taken over I've lost my job because of all my sick days, I have a one year old son who I'm struggling to provide for its all just going down hill. I'd really like to talk to someone who has ectopic beats to see how they feel and if they feel the same I do. Or anyone who knows a way to settle them down I'm 25 and can't live the normal life all my friends have, I don't drink or smoke and when I do have a drink I will be fine whilst drinking but the next few days after its just ectopic after ectopic. When I was younger I was a heavy cannabis user and even dabbled in some cocaine so I can't help but think I've ruined my own life. For the past 3 years I've been taking 40mg propanalol 3 times a day I was coping ok then I saw a specialist cardiac doctor about 2 weeks ago who told me this wasn't very good for long term and didn't seam very happy my doctor had let me take them for this long so he changed my medication to 1.25 bisoprolol and it feels like it doesn't do anything to help my ectopics. If anyone can relate to this I would love to hear back
