Around 2 years ago I went to the GP with 'odd' heartbeat. I was told it was ectopic heartbeat and nothing to worry about. Sure enough, a week later it stopped.
Recently I had a terrible cold/flu virus that knocked me for six. My odd heartbeats started again, but this time they haven't gone away (6 weeks later). It feel like the heart beat revs up, pauses, and thumps out an almighty beat. I'm very aware of it, and sometime it even hurts. I can get them individually, and then nothing for an hour, but sometimes they come in clusters of 6 or 7 within the space of half a minute.
Recent ECG was normal, but they did observe the ectopic beats and referred me to a specialist (still waiting). My BP was also a little up at 140/90. Could my BP be causing this? My doc seems very relaxed about it, but given that I'm 6'6" and weigh 19 stone, I'm sh*tting myself to be honest.
Does anyone else have similar experiences?
