    Ectopics don't kill you. Some people get 10,000 to 20,000 in day. How many are you getting?

    Have you beem prescribed Bisoprolol?

      Thanks for the reply.

      I'm not sure how many I have per day .

      I have had these for years but over the past year it has progressed and I now get bursts of rapid Beating, it's these that scare me 😳

      I have been given propranolol

      They don't really change with exercise to be honest , I have had a 3 day holter in the past that only pulled up supra ventricular ectopics, but I am now scared they have missed something like VT because of the bursts I get

    You can buy a device called a Kardia that you just need to put fingers on and it does an ECG. You attach it t an android phone to record the readings. Doctors and cardiologist accept the readings.

    I've not used one as it is not compatible with my Windows phone.
