irregular hart beat

Posted , 3 users are following.

I'm 52 and started getting a irregular hart beat a couple of years ago, I've had it for the past 6 days all day and night. Any body had this for this long? I'm a quadraplegic in a wheelchair.

    If you are experiencing Ectopic beats then yes I have had long spells like this.  For me helps getting lots of sleep along with eating very light meals and avoiding any type of stress where at all possible. You may feel they wil never stop and worrying doesn't help at all but mine do abate. Hope this is some comfort to you.
