I'm 39 years old male and have had some issues over the last few weeks with ectopic beats. I've also been under a lot of stress and anxiety which I think doesn't help . Anyway went to the doctor and got full blood work , an echo and a stress echo. Blood work came back fine . Stress echo was negative and states mild billowing of the mitral valve but no prolapse and trivial regurgitation. Everything else was normal with good excercisr tolerance METS 13 . Went and had the echo done . It also said the same thing about the valve but said they were still operating normally . The more concerning thing though was a mildly dialated left atrium . Both right and left ventricales are fine and operating normally with EF of 65 %. The doctor didn't seem all that concerned about the dialaoted left atrium . Can anyone provide anymore info ? Is this something serious or should I just let it go like the doc said .
Also what do I do about these ectopics ! They have killed me the last fees weeks . I've tried a beta blocker which seems to work but it drops my heart rate down into the 40s !
