Hi all

I've been suffering from palpitations and ectopic beats for a few months, I've had normal ecgs (didn't catch them) and I'm waiting for the results of a 6 say holter monitor.

But for the last 3 days I've had this strange feeling in my throat, like a flutter feeling but this happens without the topics.

My pulse today has been about 64-70 Bpm and it's usually about 74. Last blood pressure was 117/78.

What is this feeling I'm having? It's like a flutter/fullness/tingle? Kind of feeling, something I have to burp or cough to get rid of it

    I know it is horrible. I feel like I been through so tests and everything is always normal. So many people I find have this ,so you are not alone. Do you take Magnesium ? I find that to be very helpful

      Can I buy magnesium or does it have to be prescribed by my doctor

      It does seem very common but it's so scary when it happens :-(

    This is horrible Iknow, I have suffered ectopic beats for years now. If the ECG is clear and your blood pressure and pulse is okay then do try and relax if you can as scary as it is.  I take magnesiumand that does help. Usual foods to avoid, chocolate, tea coffee and liquorice which has an ingredient in it that causes irregular heartbeat,this was told to me by my cardiologist.  But I get a feeling of being full land have to burp at times  which helps.

    I get this too, my flutter comes with a light headed ness and its when my heart rate has dipped to under 50. Ectopics have a silly range, they can go under 50 or up to 100 within a few minutes. Bizarre.  A lot of my problems began when I hit 30. Apparently I am peri menopausal. I take maca root which helps immensely
