Can anyone suggest a remedy for stopping my ectopic beats? They started about 6 months ago, probably due to prolonged anxiety. I've had 2 ecgs, an eco test and a 24 hour monitor. My doctor has said everything looks normal but it feels far from that once the ectopic beats take hold.
I seem to be going round in circles with this, a few days without them, which is such a relief and then back they come for no apparent reason. They usually start mid afternoon and then continue for about 24 hours. I dread trying to sleep as they seem to increase once I'm in bed and of course anxiety only intensifies them.
I take magnesium tablets, and have found that cutting out alcohol and caffine doesn't make any difference. I've read that beta blockers can help, has anyone had any success with these?
Having found this forum, its been quite a relief to discover this seems to be quite a common problem.
Hopefully someone will respond to my post!
