Missed heartbeats

Posted , 3 users are following.

Has anyone experienced missed heartbeats every minute of every day for days at a time? Maybe on average about 6 a minute. Don't know about when I'm sleeping. Def in a period of high anxiety so attributing it to this. Thanks in advance.

    Could be ectopic beats. Get an ECG done at the hospital. They will tell you waht is going on.

      Hi Walter thanks for that. Have svt but usually causes fast  heart. Only one prob. I'm phobic about all things medical so I'm sure a doc or hospital visit would cause more probs than it wld solve! Daft eh? However read somewhere that splashing  your face with cold water and or drinking very cold water can help. Just done both and low and behold I've had at least a couple of minutes with no missed beats!!!! Can see what I,ll be doing all day. Thanks for reading and getting back to me.

      Hold your nose close your mouth attempt to breathe out stimulating vagus nerve

      stop trying to find it missing it could be just it slowing down as it jumps around

      there are treatments for svt discuss these then it will settle and your anxiety will be fine

      Thanks for this Gillian. Have great difficulty doing this. Always end up with blocked ears!!! If it's not one thing it's another!  Most of these measures only work for a minute or to. What I suppose I need to know is that like all anxiety symptoms it's not dangerous then try to ignore it! Thanks again.
