Completely new to this forum. I have had a bit of a whirwind of a few months and just wanted some advice/information if anyone could help. I am currently waiting on a diagnosis of what doctor's think is Crohn's disease. Had awful acid reflux and chest pains as well as a host of other symptoms, although this has all dies down now still not back to normal. I am also now very happily 16 weeks pregnant with my second child [smile] I am 28.
So because of all the chest pains I have been having and palpitation type feelings I had an ECG and 5 day monitor. ECG was completely fine, monitor was fine apart from 1 'extra' beat as my doctor put it. Heart rate was between 70 and 100 throughout. Just wondered a couple fo things...first is that heart rate quite normal for my age? And also, more so, what is an 'extra' beat? My doctor didn't seem concerned but as I am the one with the chest pain/palpitations obviously I am more concerned...is this normal? Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks so much
